what intake, exhaust and headers to buy?

i didnt end up going to the college i thought i was going to cause of the ex girlfriend that chased me away. so i had all kinds of money saved up and want to get me a bunch of performance products for the ranger, i am looking into getting the aem brute force intake, what headers should i get? as far as exhaust i think i am going straight pipe all the way back from exhaust pros here in santa fe cause we have no emission laws here. so what gains am i looking at as far as hp and torque?

If you reduce back pressure you'll loose some low end and gain some high end power. Just keep that in mind.. You may want to try just running no muffler at first and see how you like that.

And I agree. Stay in school.

Make sure you do an X pipe. If your gonna re-do the exhaust anyways, you should be able to do it easy. You need some back pressure as well. Is if 4x4. If so, JBA is the only ones that makes headers. If not, headman also has some. I have DynoMax exhaust and like it a lot. I'm picky with my exhaust as well. I also have Volant CAI and done have any complaints. Nice Growl, and better response. Also with the exhaust, go with at least 2.5" pipe.
