    headers and y- pipe

    Has anyone installed long tube headers on there verts? Was woundering if there were any ground clearance issues? and has anyone found a y-pipe that works with the verts?

    Headers and y pipes for verts are no different than coupes. As long as you car is not lowered and you should be ok on clearance.

    I didn't realize you were talking about one particular brand. Don't get SLP most of their stuff is over priced junk. They are the only ones that say their ypipe doesn't fit a vert and that's only an A4 will fit the M6 vert. SLP headers have clearance issues too I hear. Stay clear of them get some pacesetters or if you have extra $$$ get kooks or ARH.

    I run pacesetters on my vert along with their off road Y-pipe, everything fits fine. Some people have said they had to remove the extra "X" brace the verts have to clear the Y, but I didn't find that necessary on my car.

    What did you pay for your pacesetters and y-pipe? Did they bolt right together? The y-pipe to the headers that is, or did you have to fabricate them?

    I bought mine from a local shop, the headers, off road Y, extra band style clamps, and a pair of nicely made 02 extensions with weather packs all for about $500 if I remember right. I paid a little extra for the 02 extensions that were pre-made. Much nicer piece. I think the headers come with wiring but you have to cut and solder, sounded like electrical gremlins later down the road if you ask me.

    They are constructed with a slip fit design, the Y is 3 inch piping that matches the header collectors. It all slipped together fine and joined up with the factory SLP exhaust system without any fabbing at all.
