    Next was the k member rub, at least on my car I had to grind the k member because headers wouldn't fit. So that's something to think about if you are buying these.

    After wondering why it was rubing I discovered that both headers after being bolted in, the exits weren't going straight back , I mean they were pointing down but exits were tending to the left or right depending on the side.

    After the custom exhaust, the 3.42s and the FloPac, i have to say this car runs pretty good.


    Now waiting for a tune...
    Nice bro. I see you live in AZ......what city??? I'm in Oro Valley, AZ......have you done a cam yet on your vehicle??? If you ever do let me know since I installed my whole engine including cam, heads & Lt's.....a cam will LOVE those LT's.....It's a fairly easy install that can save you ALOT of money in labor.....take care.

    Go the "JVT" LS1 header. It's the same header as all the others. It's the brand I purchased & installed. Let me know what you find.

    Yeah, man they didn't last 10 minutes!!! At least someone will get some good usage out of them. Have you had any second thoughts on the OBX headers??? Seem to be the best buy for quality out there.....

    Well then what's next man??? As LS1 owners we have options but it all comes down to what we are willing to pay for a given product. I know texas speed is selling pacesetter ceramic coated headers for under $380.00 on ebay right now.....I can tell you they fit PERFECT and there is no fabrication needed. BUT again they cost at least $376.00 so let us know which way you go. I say go pacesetters WHEN you have the MONEY and just be done with it. With the SS LT's they'll work, but as always you get what you pay for.......so prepare for fabricating...

    Yes they are cheap headers. But im cheap too! That is why I have them on my car. As far as fitting I had them installed without doing anything crazy. The car is not my d/d so I don't have to worry about having down time with mods.
    Issues I have had with the ebay headers:
    The emissions provisions are not welded on right. I had one snap off. Had to pull the header and weld the hole up.

    I have a pacesetter ory with them and it to some effort to get them to fit

    Yep......seems like a minimal amount of adjustment when your saving well over $300-$600 depending on the brand your comparing them to......

    I saw that and about threw my computer out the window. I bought mine for 300 not 2 months before they started selling some for 199. OBX LT headers and LLP ypipes the way to go. All stainless and very little hassles yet. EGR/AIR tubes still intact. put almost 6000 miles on this setup and still sounds good.

    That's awesome man. At least we now have a reference for a good combination to buy (OBX + LLP Y-pipe).......

    No prob. Now i cant speak for the Catted y-pipe, however, the ORY's craftmanship should carry into the catted y. THey both have a nice merge compared to other ypipes.... and of course the best part is they are stainless As for the OBX, either the KIT or the Stand alone LT headers seem to be a good choice among alot of the other budget minded f-body folk.
