I would do the OHC & the 06 & up mirrors. I would leave the dual exhaust until you need the exhaust replaced.

That's the thing with the exhaust. I bought a Gibson catback and I hate it. The sound is no different then stock. So duals is on the list. I just need to get the hangers and a few clamps

I had a single JBA system & now I have a single Dynomax system, & both of them sound way better then stock. Here is a link to the system I used. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=2598492&cc=1362798&jsn=569

I'm thinking it was an option, I have seen them with it and without it. I have never seen one with dimmer and without OHC but have seen OHC and no dimmer.
