    Let me know how they hold up as well. I got headers from another seller on ebay and one of the primaries cracked since I put them on and the seller wont message me back. I might try these since LPP are out of stock and Kooks are out of my price range

    They slipped right into the pacesetter ORY on the floor. Look good so far but worst comes to worse ill take it to the local muffler shop and have them tinker with a torch to get it right. About to order bosch 13111's. Im off next week for shutdown of my work and plan on ripping into the bitch hardcore.

    To add to this thread and maybe help some decision making.... I bought and installed stainless steel ebay headers as well. I don't know if they're the same companies as Josh's, but he speaks the truth. These things are worth it, especially for the price. When I installed mine, we had to motivate the drivers side but it fit great. If your looking for a great inexpensive bolt on, this is it. Especially if you don't already have LT's. I also picked up the stainless steel Y pipe off of ebay and feel the same way about it. Slipped right in and looks amazing. I couldn't be happier I did this mod.
    PS. Josh, good to hear you had the same experience with these headers. So far so good on my end with these

    Haha, now that you mention it I just realized you haven't installed yet. Well when you do you won't regret it. I'm so glad I bought these. Good luck with the install, these were my first and my right hand hates me for it. Let us know how the install goes/satisfaction with them

    I was considering seeing how much it would cost to get this done, probably 50 bucks tops

    it is VERY easy to understand. It is called china or a country of the like. The company I work for used to buy a certain piece of equipment in the USA for $1100 shipped. We since out sourced it to taiwan and now we get it for $800 shipped. It sucks but that is how it goes

    It's good we're seeing multiple people who've had good things to say about them. That's a good idea welding over, I almost snapped mine off too. Stupid emissions

    They probably are made in the good ol USA, but as for me right now I don't have the money to drop $800 on LT's. So these will do for now as a great upgrade. Plus, I can always but Kooks or ARH's later down the line. Right now I just want a bolt on DD so these work great

    Well here is the final review.

    The passenger side fits great and has no clearance issues what so ever.

    The drivers side is like a good 1/4 inch away from the floorpan, but I think solid mounts will cure this, the k-member needed to ground a bit as well.

    Its got a lil bit of ORY band/vibrate here and there but nothing I cant live with. Sound is amazing.

    02 sensor location is great!

    Pacesetters ory slipped right on with some rubber mallet fun.

    I only had the car jacked up about 1.5 foot as well.

    I suggest going custom true duals or custom ORY.

    Ive beat on the car too much, and ive got some about to snap in half I think...

    Its driveshaft related I think... whoops

    Ok , they're polished stainless , right ? And for an 2002 install the smog crap has to be cut-off , is that correct ? So what about ground clearance ? Also they don't just bolt-on there are fitment issues , right ?
    Anyone know which available header is a true bolt-on with the MOST ground clearance ?

    I had absolutely no problem with my pacesetters, and they have race headers that don't have the EGR crap to plug off. And the ground clearance is great for longtubes, I have a steep driveway and the most I've ever rubbed was on one of my clamps that was turned down, and I have since fixed that problem. That's the only headers I know anything about, because it's what I run
