Exhaust:

Headers
High flow headers replace the restrictive stock manifolds, adding power and improving sound.

Cat-Back
Cat-Back systems are basically the entire exhaust system after the catalytic converter. Mandrel bent pipes flow better than stock pipes, and a high flow muffler replaces the restrictive stock muffler. Thus improving performance and sound.

If it is just the muffler, then it is more for sound. You might get a little more power, but probably not a noticeable amount.
