Default What exhaust mod for most perf. boost on 2nd gen blazers?

I have heard different stuff about this topic all over the place.
I have had people tell me that changing the headers is the best thing u can do to benefit most from since "The rest of the exhaust is well engineered"
Then I have heard the exact opposite as to not even bother with getting headers.
I also heard someone say to just get rid of the cat and the muffler which I'd believe if it was an older vehicle...

So is there a part of the exhaust system of this vehicle that you would benefit the most by changing?
Also I am not looking to change the sound of the car, make it lowder, more quiet or whatever, I just want to know if there is anyway to get a performance boost by doing a mod on the exhaust system alone.
Thanks

Well there is an answer, albeit a simple one. A high flow cat and muffler would be the easiest and most bang for your buck answer there is.

Also look into upgrading your Y pipe. The factory Y pipes are known to be restrictive as well. Don't expect anything huge from all this alone tho.

Fact is, no exhaust system will add power. All it can do is free whatever power the engine produces. Advertising puff aside, does anybody actually believe an exhaust on a naturally aspirated engine will add 10-15 HP? Like most engines designed back in the 80's (yes, that's when they were designed), these require internal modifications to really make a noticeable difference.
