However, the previous seller got in trouble for comparing his products to brand name products in his listings, so it looks like he simplified the listing so that the only think it says is that they are headers and Y-pipe to fit LS1 F-bodies.

    Here is his official website, with the same headers. They are listed with all the details, including that they are 321 Stainless:

    Considered the eBay headers but many mentions of the DS collector problem, and that it is fixed on the LPP make me strongly lean toward the LPP.
    Supposed to be fixed. But they also have to wait 2-3 more months for them to come out.

    Cool^ I had to laugh at a thread last week where a person said they put both headers on their car in 2.5 hours using regulat jack/ jack stands. I called major BS on that one.

    LOL I would have too. It took that long to get the Coil packs off, manifolds off, and the Y off....Damn liars.

    Well it took 6.5 hours to get them on. The Y is a tight fit, but it fits. Overall an AMAZING FIT!!! The powers good, you can feel it.. And it sounds mean as all hell. They look good, and TUCK UP TIGHT!I will post all of my pics in the morning! Overall I would buy these again...Oh and theres like 2-3 inches from the steering knuckle, no grinding of any tabs....No modding of anything. Slid RIGHT IN!

    Yep the Y was included (and is stainless as well)..The Y touches the floor, but I have not heard it bang. The heat shield on the Pass. Side does rattle a little, but I havent even gone under the car to fix it. All in all they are awesome, the fit was just sooo easy.

    great pics thanks. I noticed you only had the front of the car up on wheel ramps. did you have enough room to slid the headers in from the bottom? Or did you wiggle them in from the bottom? Every one posts and says from bottom, but talk about getting the car like 3 feet in the air.

    thanks

    I actually had to jack it up about another 10 inches or so to get them in, but I had some room to spare. But all I did was put the front on 10-12'' ramps and once the header was in the hole I had plenty of room to do what ever I needed. Ground clearance is NOT an issue with these. I cannot express how well they fit! Everyones like they fit like crap, or hell theres even a post in this thread where the guy said "You WILL have fitment issues" and guess what.... NONE! Best $440 Ive spent on the car so far. Sound clips will be up, but with the LM2 prepare for rasp.

    But with about 20-24'' of clearance the headers went in easy as pie...3' is way TOO far up for them.

    Glad you got em on and it worked out. That one guy who said you would have issues with them fitting may have had a older version of those headers before they got all the issues worked out-is all I can figure. The main question for me is where a few people were talking about the Y pipe on the drivers side (I believe) pointing up towards the floor board and that the Y pipe would have to be bent some for it to work- I know you said you had no issues but did the Y pipe bend upwards any- like they mentioned?

    The collector actually is what angles up. But considering that these and Pacesetters/Jethots share the same design they will all have the same problem IMO. The Y rests on the floorboard tho, but hey it does NOT bang. I didnt have to undo the steering knuckle like most do with P/S LTs, or grind off a tab like most people say, or even grind the K member like everyone says you have to do. The only noise I have is from the Pass. side heat shield. After installing these, I would recommend them to ANYONE who wants a GREAT DEAL.
