    BBK LT's and Y pipe?

    Hey guys im jw if anyone is running the bbk lts and y pipe, what do you think about them? Are they good, worth it, do they have any problems for fit meant problems? Im looking at getting a set because there is a warehouse not to far and I can get a good deal on them. Oh and what about the O2 sensers?


    Thanks for the help Guys!

    I have the BBK LT on mine and love them. Very easy to install, fitment was great. I would def get another set if I was on a budget. For the O2 there 4 holes for them. I plugged up the rear 2 and had them deleted in my tune.

    BBK LT's ceramic love them I can not believe how fast they cool down. 4 Hours to install in garage on jack stands SLP Loudmouth cat back sounds awesome.

    I wouldn't get those myself. I fancy Texas Speed's long tube/y pipe combo. These are polished stainless steel with velocity spikes for $400. Thier off road Y has a nice merge as well. Seem to be the best deal going now.

    I have the BBK LTHs and ORY. Only issue I have is the header flanges smacking the floor.

    Did you do new motor mounts with yours? i swapped in poly mounts while doing mine after hearing about that issue from other members and it seems to have done the trick from me man

    I noticed that the ORY is only 2.5 inch, will that take away performance or cause problems if I have a 3 inch cat back?

    i believe the ORY is 3 inch but even is it's 2.5 it wont really rob you unless your planing on going 500hp or more

    when you do them, do one side at a tine and have a rod small enough in diameter to fit through the bolt holes on the mount and block. helps tremendously when liining up the mounts.

    Clearance was simple enough. I do not have an EGR or AIR so that made it easier for accessibility on the passenger side. Mine slid in from the bottom. There wasn't enough space from the top. It's a good time to ask a buddy to either thread a couple of bolts in from the top or lay on the ground and hold them up so you can from the top. That is if you aren't using a lift. Wolfman is dead on with having a rod to stick through the bolt holes for alignment when hanging. If you haven't done motor mounts, now is the time to also. I neglected to do that and the flanges smack the floor pan. My plan is to have the flanges cut off and have a sleeve with hangers installed this fall when the season is over.

    I don't have these myself, they weren't out last time I did headers but those are what I'd get now.

    i have them, love them real easy install, only problem is the y pipe merger did not line up with the I pipe, it was about 2 inches too short, not a big deal for an easy install, if you get the chrome plan on them turning colors the first day, it wont get worse after that first day but it happens within about a day.
