I'm in the process of ordering headers for my car. I've narrowed it down to a set of pacesetters. Do I need a y-pipe as well?? Will I need to buy new converters, use the stock ones, or do away with them period??? Are these the best bang for the buck? A tune will come in the near future, however it'll be a couple months or so. What do I expect till then?

I have pacesetter lt's on my goat and love them. if you don't need to pass a visual emmissions inspection get an off road Y pipe and when you get your tune have the rear o2s turned off, if you do need to a visual check get a catted Y pipe.
I'm tagged in maryland and just passed emissions two months ago with just my headers and dual strait pipe..... I evrn forgot .y rear o2s were cut and laying in the centerconsole cup holder lmao flew strait through and passed flawlessly.
good luck man, either way you ll love it

I have been running my LT's and ORY for about 33,000 miles or more with no tune. Runs a little rich, but still runs strong and gets about 26-27mpg highway. I changed the plugs a couple of thousand miles ago with about 30,000 on them and they looked great still.

I was at MUCH higher elevation last weekend and I noticed that when shifting, I would pres in the clutch and the rpms would just stay there for a second and then come down to where they needed to be lol (I know a tune at my altitude wouldn't have made a difference but still).

Without the converters, my SES light will constantly be on tho, right? I assume the headers will have a place for the front O2 sensors?

Yeah. I have had my SES light on for a year and a half now.
