    I think they are along the lines of the OBX e-bay headers. I've never heard of anyone using them on a LS1.

    Well I hope they aren't like my OBX headers, the driverside header is in the way of the oil drain plug unless you get a shorter bolt like I did or notch the header in the spot where the bolt touches the header.

    if i'm not mistaken they're just another brand of the stainless steel ebay headers. I had them on my z28, as have many other members on here on their f-bodies.. No complaints here, only slight problem is the collecters point a bit more up/down(can't remember which one) than some other brands of longtubes. which can make the install of the y-pipe a bit tricky if you're doing it by yourself, shouldn't be a problem if a shop is doing it for you though. You may also have to massage your firewall a bit so that they aren't touching, but that varies from car to car.

    98TAWS6 could they have sent you used headers that were returned?

    My OBX's fit great, and look great.

    I am not sure about that other brand OP.

    Maybe, when I switch to TDs I am going to get Kooks or ARH I think.

    Never heard of dpt.
    If your looking for a good deal on headers check out BBK. Excellent fit and finish and easy to install.
