    They look nice. Did you know if they perform well though? I'm thinking of getting the SLP re-designed headers. If I do, I'll post up some pics / vids. I'll be running full SLP from headers back when I get them.

    Those headers are completely different than the original eBay LS1 headers sold by SS Autochrome. I have the SS Autochrome headers, and the collector merge is completely different, as well as the metal (321 stainless vs. 304 stainless) and the emissions provisions. These headers are definitely cheaper (I paid $378 for headers/y-pipe combo), but if the quality is good than its an awesome deal. Hopefully these don't have the driver's side upward angled header collector like mine do, that was their only downfall.

    They definately have an angled driver side collector! I paid a friend f a friend to drop it down 1/4-1/2", but it ended up being like 1" Oh well, at least it clears my floorboard now and it hasn't hit anything...yet.

    Ahh I see. So it must be the same design with a different manufacturer.

    Since the driver side collector is the main flaw, how did you go about fixing that problem?

    i didn't have that problem with them at all... the ONLY problem i had was the passenger side 02 bung... it would have had the sensor pointing tword the ground... the bung was pluged and a new one welded on for a better position of the sensor...

    When I had the custom exhaust made, I just had the shop make a downward bend in the exhaust pipe right after the collector, so it would clear the floor. If you bend the exhaust downward, it clears. The problem is if your exhaust pipe is straight off the collector, it will hit the floor, since the collector is angled upwards.
