Just Ordered New Exhaust!

I just ordered my new Exhaust, I ended up getting a DC Sport Cat-Back System. I also ended up getting a CATCO High-Flow Cat. With already having an APC Intake with K&N Filter, Would you say that next I should get new headers? Should I go basic painted, ceramic coated, or Stainless?

Thanks to you all who have helped me in this exhaust deciding process!

headers should definatly be your next bet, stainless is the most expensive but i believe they keep the coolest as well, giving better performance overall.

actually, stainless steel headers heat up more and keep things under the hood much hotter. Ceramic will insulate better and direct the heat into the exhaust instead of dissipating the heat under the hood. But stainless steel will last longer than any of them. I would go with ceramic.

another thing, the stainless steel header you're looking at in pictures only look like that for like 10 minutes. They look nice and shiny when they are brand new, but after you install them and the car has been running for 10 minutes, they change color to a copper like shade from the heat. No more bling bling.
