    I'll tell you this ask 1986camarojoe about those headers he bought them for his 99 z they are sweet well made and the welds look damn good if they were out when I was ready to buy mine LT's I'd have a pair for damn sure.

    Sorry but LT's didnt give you 35rwhp gains all on there own. Yes LT's are the best power gains to be had I dont contest that but if all things are equal and hes not going FI then the diffrence between LT's and shorties are small. Also shorties are easyer to install than LT's not saying anyone cant do the job just that its an easyer job. you are right he can have cats with LT's I was misleading but O2 extensions will be needed to put cats on LT's and to be honest I dont hear of many doing it. But its ok I expected to get flamed by the gods of LT's....flame suit on

    I read different site write-ups. Everyone does it different. Once you start taking things off you see what needs to come off next. The only real trouble was getting the mids to seal to the OE catback.

    I just gave the guy that installed mine the write up that came with the headers I'm sure every company have their own way to do it but I'm sure they all work

    I believe they have vids out their gaining 15 to 20 just off of long tubes, with true dual or x pipe, is good for another 15 to 20. So there for will be around 35 to 40 horses, I believe he was talking about a full exhaust anyhow, oh and their is a big difference between shorty and long tubes. Not trying to call you out or be a pain in the a**.

    as to the question about those header, i would also like to know, seems pretty cheap for a set of stainless longtubes with mid-pipes. im not interested in them to buy. but that does seem like a better buy then the pacesetters.
