Summit lists a Walker/Dynomax kit for a '95 shortbed.Best thing to do would be call either Summit or Jegs if it's not listed online.

Crane makes camshafts, hell you can get performance parts from gmgoodwrench.com as well. What about superchargers, vortech, procharger, powerdyne might have something for you.

tpprr is right there isnt much available for his truck, especially exhaust because of the 5 speed. I myself have a 97 4x4 5sp np231 std cab short bed chassis: z85. But i still want headers, stupid edelbrock tech guys say the cluch slave is in the way for their headers, funny cause it is on the input shaft not externaly mounted like on older s-10's i myself would appreciate some help finding some hop-ups especially exhaust. se my other post in the exhaust section, Thanks

Its gonna cost ya about the same when ya buy the piping and the muffler and tip.

Muffler - $75-150
Piping, mandrel bent - $100-200
Tip(s) - $40-150

Whereas, I can buy a Gibson catback for $255 and dont have to pay some mechanic to put it on.

Where the hell are you shopping?
You are getting ripped off with those prices. Either you made up those prices to make the catback sound better or some shop or shops figure you don't know any better and want to overcharge you on everything.

Any new name brand muffler is going to cost about $75,
the piping will be around $75-$125,
and tips start at $5. Many times the shops give them for free.

And you Gibson catback is going to be bolted on, whereas the other set up will be welded on, which is much much better. Also, almost all shops give a lifetime garruntee(sp?) on the work.
