    PACESETTER!! BUT,
    If you wanna save up KOOKS and QTP are the best of the best headers for the LSX engine. Mind you they are also $800 for just headers. Add another $350 for the y pipe ($625 for catted) and for about $1200 you should be set. This does not include the $400-500 installation fees some shops charge. Last word, Pacesetters are great value for money, Hooker are a littel better and expenseve, KOOKS and QTP are the best, and like Luos said worth every penny. Its like comparing an LS1 to a V-6 camaro/firebird. Both are good and fast. BUT if u have the $ and want raw power, the LS1 is the car for u.

    Are these numbers any where close to what they actually give you? This is straight off theyre website
    Another reason SLP sucks.
    No way any header will get you that much unless you are running stock manifolds on a head and cam car and then add headers. Then the heads and cam will finally be able to breathe.

    Don't get me wrong. Kooks and QTP's are awesome headers. I just couldn't justify the price difference when it came time for my headers. There were tons of other parts I wanted and the difference in price between those and pacesetters was pretty significant. For me it was a price only decision but one I don't regret a bit because after 2 years my pacesetters still look brand new so even though stainless will last a lifetime these coated pacesetters are gonna last me a long time also. I'd say if you have the money go stainless but if money is any issue you'll be just as happy with the pacesetters I think. The gains between headers are close enough that it comes down to what you want to spend or how long you want them to last. You're not gonna see 50 hp that's for sure.

    Couple Header Questions ????

    First question-
    If I get the Qtp headers (emission style) will they toss up any codes and make the SES light come on?

    Next Question-

    Who has else has the best price on the QTP headers, besides Thunderracing.com?

    Last Question-

    On thunderracing QTP sells a catalytic y-pipe, Is that a y-pipe with catalytic converters, the cost is like $500 something?



    Thanks for the help Im getting close to purchasing some headers

    Do you plan on SERIOUS mods in the future???


    If not....get Pacesetters.




    That said....if you get headers with emissions fittings you shoudln't throw any codes unless the hi-flow cats do it.

    what do you consider SERIOUS mods?

    What can you do if the cats throw a code can it be deleted?

    Yes.
    A local tuner can delete codes like that. Or you can run O2 sims. Having the codes deleted was cheaper for me.

    Serious would be stroker, a blower, a huge cam with heads, large shot of laughing gas.

    The SLP header will give you issues with ground clearance. If you plan on lowering your car, they are a bad choice. My car sits at the stock height and I only have about 4 inches between the bottom of header and the ground.

    from what I heard the QTP's are a high quality header the high velocity merge collector is also a plus as well as them being stainless steel

    The only difference in the Kooks and the QTPs are the collector.

    Is that Catted Y-pipe set-up that QTP sells worth the $500? or should I buy the stuff separate?
