    Headers

    after finally getting on here and mentioning that i wanted to get the slp long tube headers package. a few members said that was not the best route. Too much money and not enough clearance. They sugguessted pacesetter, kooks, or jet hots. Yet the only package i can find is the slp. i want long tubes, high flos, and a y-pipe. could i avoid the clearance issue slp has by just getting the long tubes and high flos and having a custom y pipe? does any one have a full slp exhaust? and where can i find pacesetter, jethot, kooks packages?? thanks

    I went with the OBX stainless steal package on eBay and am more than happy with mine! It comes with the ORY-pipe and bolts right up to stock location. No converters though....

    why not just order all the parts together. i know that new era performance has all the pacesetter pipes. thats probably your best shot is to just order them all at once if you cant find the package.

    ok so i have given some thought about the headers and would orginally want to go with slp lt with cats and y pipe for about $1300. now everyone is telling me go a different route (pacesetter, hooker, jet hot, ebay) If slp has the clearance issues, should i just go with ebay lts and y pipe with no cats? so question is CATS or No CATS? Name Brand or No Name?

    It's truely all on how much money you're willing to spend... And what you care for... I personally would rather save my money longer and buy quality.... I got ARH's and couldn't be more happy with them.... But they weren't cheap...

    And once again when it comes to Cats you have to look at it a few different ways....

    Pros: More power, louder

    Cons: Not fun with the T-top open, and for some, louder.....

    im am really pleased with my pacesetter LS's and ORY...personally no cats is the only way to go, but some states require them so that is another thing to look into

    also SLP is overpriced for almost all there parts.

    i wouldnt go with the ebay lt's and ory becasue you never know how the alignment will be, if you go with a brand name its almost guarnteed that they will line right up.

    its all about personal taste

    I went with eBay lt's and ory and mine are absolutely perfect. And everyone who got the same kit I did had no fitment issues what so ever.

    i went with hookers and they are decently priced. i went with the ceramic coated comp and ory. if you dont have emissions i would go with no cats for a couple more horse and a little cheeper. they tuck up nice too.

    3 of my friends got that kit and they couldnt get them to align correctly...bad luck possibly but just wanted to let people know

    they did ship them back and got another set of header sent out and those were good...

    Well they're not THAT bad then!!! lol All headers should be able to be somewhat aligned through doughnut gaskets and what not... but I had 0 problems with mine. AND they sound great!!!!

    well from expierence, when you don't have cats, and your sittting in your car with your t top open at a light or whatever, you can smell all the fumes and shit sometimes even burns your eyes... Cats serve a purpose, but... you lose power with em... so its a personal preference...

    Love the fit of my Hooker coated. Tuck up real nice. The ORY I had to massage a bit to keep it up high also, but the end result is more ground clearance then the stock stuff.
