    BBk headers problem

    I purchased a set of new bbk headers off ebay for my z28. I only wanted shorties just wanted the header look under the hood not looking for big hp gain. after inspection the passenger side header has no provision for the egr hookup. Anybody know why is that? I want to run the egr. any thoughts?

    Could the OP be talking about the secondary air system?

    Maybe this will help...

    If your LS1 F-body is a 2000, you'll need a '98-'99 Z28 lower exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) tube. It's available as PN 12556643 (retail price $99.24) from your local GM dealer and bolts right in place. On '01 and '02 models, you'll have to make a simple EGR blockoff plate and bolt it to the EGR port on the passenger-side header because GM eliminated the EGR system on LS1 F-cars after the 2000 model year.

    my z28 is a 2000 model. the header itself has no provision for the lower egr tube to bolt to. Hope that makes better sense. Do you think I may have purchased the wrong headers?

    i would try and send em back... sounds like you got one "off road" and one "egr" header. not really sure why anyone would go with an off road shorty set up though

    then i would man up and not just go for the "look" since you can barely see em anyway and go for HP too and get the long tubes!

    It's possible.. Most folks get rid of the EGR and secondary AIR systems when they install headers...
