    Why would the OP need to get a y pipe anyway? the Carven bolt-ons are a direct bolt on. Take the stock muffler off and replace it with either the progressive or the competitive.

    Thats assuming the OP wants the bolt on kit. If he just purchases the muffler he'll need a y-pipe.

    Does anyone know what size or a specific y-pipe that could be used to just bolt in, that way I dont have to get a shop to do any adding or welding.

    If you want a good sounding truck you need headers

    yeah i want long tube headers, but its such a hassle here in cali. Gotta pay big bucks to get them put on, then removed for smog time, then put back on. In addition to finding a shop thats willing to do it. luckily i know a place...

    are headers hard on the engine?

    headers are on my build plan too, and although Longtubes sound good, for what i use my truck for, shorties might be more practical, and fit the daily driver build better.
