    Question Opinions about SLP

    wasnt sure if this was the right forum but since i have a z here i am. ive heard alot of mixed reviews from people on this site and people i run into around town as to the goodness of SLP. its either been "fuck them, the shit is overpriced and isnt that good", or "i love SLP because its so good."
    No real reasons were given to me either way.
    Help is appreciated.

    Overpriced.
    Old designs.
    Horrible customer service. I was actually called a liar by someone from SLP on the phone.

    I could get into it.
    I avoid SLP like the plague.
    SLP banks on 'rookie modders' for business. They know they can't sell to those that have been around the cars for a while.

    totally agree.
    ls1 tuners like thunder racing will sell you packages/products that are the same as slp for cheaper.

    I had a problem with my wheels in the first year of owning the car(2001 SS). One of my wheels began to peal. I talked to someone at Rick Hendrick Chevrolet in Durham, NC and had a great experience with the customer service there. What I did not like was the long wait for a replacement wheel and the plastic lugnut caps did not match the originals! That PISSED ME OFF! Within the second month the was a hole in my driver's side floor mat. I was told it was not under warrenty and it could have come from the shoes I was wearing. BULLSHIT! The more I think and talk about it the more I am getting upset. ...I gotta go.

    It all depends on what you are gonna do to the car.. weather you want it as a daily driver or a weekend warrior.. If you got a warranty on your car.. I would say go with SLP because their are just bolt-ons.. Or anyother company that's just bolt-ons.. Bolt-ons are good way to get power without having to worry if you are gonna break something.. As long as you keep it basic.. I have the cold air ind. kit from SLP and i'm satisfied with it.. Like i said it all depends on what you wanna do..

    I wouldn't go with SLP for anything but a lid.

    Bolt-on or not.

    SLP headers= bad clearance and overpriced, overhyped

    Hooker headers= I have had them before, liked their fit, and priced decently

    Jet hots= I currently have them, love the fit, love the price, recommend them

    Pacesetters= I have ran them before, great bang for the buck, good fit

    Hedman= A friend has them, not impressed with their fit

    Mac mids= If you don't plan to cam your car, a definite option to consider, better fit than long tubes, good power, very affordable

    These are all the $600 and under headers I can think of.

    Thumbs up

    Lets talk cat-back system.

    SLP LM 11 is a lot less money that GMMG chambered, even thou I know GMMG is better, the money comes in to play somewhere, doesn't it ?

    Now I'm talking no headers here, just stock ex. other than cat back.

    Does anyone here think GMMG is worth the hundred's more ?

    My wheels are from SLP, I thought I should have gotten a better turn around time than 3 weeks. I also thought I should have gotten the original style plastic lug nut caps. I forgot to tell you all that some dumb ass put an impact wrench on the plastic nuts to tighten them and tore 4 of them to shit! Just tires paid for new ones but like I said before, I did not receive the original style caps.

    only SLP product i'll own is their LID

    best fit
    best flow
    best looking

    SLP LongTubes =
    the tuned length made sense and a good idea... but the gains are minimal if even measurable
    plus you'll rip them out with out being lowered
