    I have had the SLP LT's since 2001. Very low clearance but I have yet to do any type of damage. Just take it easy and you will be alright.

    Yeah call SLP and tell them they suck! Demand your money back and get pacesetters

    How's the clearance on the pace setters? i'm about to have them installed and when i go to work i have 3 large speed bumps that i have to go over and there's no way around them. Even with my car stock i will scrape very lightly if i go over them straight so since i've always taken them at an angle.

    the easiest fix is to return the SLPs and go with Pacesetters, just because it's SLP doesn't mean it's the best. plus SLP isn't worth the money when you get about the same gains from Pacesetters

    I could have told you this long ago.

    Expect no help from SLP.

    Isn't the reason the SLP headers hang so low because they are equal length primaries??

    Its just totally unneccessary. I've seen pics, one of the primaries practically touches the ground, even with stock ride height. For the price, thats terrible.

    This is why you research on sites like this to find out these problems BEFORE you make the purchase. How much did you overpay for the SLP headers? Because Pacesetters go for $500 with an ORY. I'm guessing you paid more.

    I have never heard anyone complain about the quality of the Pacesetters, they are a great value for the price.

    I know that you cannot use the factory cats with the long tubes what other parts do I need other than the headers?

    You will need gaskets (you can reuse the old ones if you choose, they are designed to be reuseable), block off plates if you arne't going to be hooking up the EGR/AIR systems, and a Y-Pipe to match the headers to the catback.

    Thanks, I also will need to get o2 simulators as well, so I do not throw codes.

    Yep.

    As a cheaper alternative to the electronic simulators, you can try the spark plug non-fouler type. Basically its just like an extension that screws into the bung in the exhaust, and then you screw the O2 sensor into the back of it. It relocates the sensor far enough away from the exhaust that it doesn't pick up the extra emmissions from the cats not being there, but its close enough that it picks up enough exhaust not to throw a code.

    I've used them on a VR6 Jetta and it worked, and my friend just installed them on his 03 GMC Sierra (which has Long Tubes, no cats) and they appear to be working as well.

    For $7 each on eBay, its definitely worth a try
