genie makes a great one
http://www.marcor.ca/
they're the genie distributor for canada.
but you can just got to an exhaust shop get a 2" or a 2 1/4"

for a manifold, i'd say go with a genie or a janspeed one.

2" or 2 1/4" is not too big for a GT. 2 1/4" might be a little over kill for naturally aspirated, and stock header, but certainly not too much pipe. I'd give the same advice, don't bother buying an exhaust system specific to a GT, just go to a muffler shop and have them make you an exhaust, they have all the tools. Just make sure you know what you want. I did a cat delete on my exhaust and now it's much more obnoxious. I don't mind at all, cause i like to be looked at ;) but if you're daily driving it and don't want the ricer looks, go for a cat and a muffler. Or atleast a resonator and a muffler.
What you should really be looking for is an aftermarket header though, if you're looking for power. Gains from a bigger exhaust from the manifold back might not be much at all with the stock manifold.

true. I think that if you put a whole new exhaust on a stock manifold your gains would be similar to just putting a header on a stock system. minus whale do both!

Not to bad.. The sway bar is off it in the front right now until i tuck the temporary exhaust up more. Once that is done and i adjust the camber it will handle really good! I lowered it 3" in the front and 3" in the back. This spring im taking the back down another 1.5" to level it out. Going to 4-link the rear with bags or coils to really get it to handle!

Truck is cool!

I just had my exhaust done. Custom fabbed, 2.25" with a Magnaflow 10415 muffler and a Catco 2.25" universal cat. REAL tight clearance, rubs on accell a couple places lightly. But damn does it sound good and above 4k RPM's it absolutely wails.
