    SLP headers hang lower than most other brands, robbing you of ground clearance. Not to mention they are a bit harder to install. Pacesetters are what most are going with, they are the best bang for the buck.

    Too costly and hang too low. Much better choices out there.

    1 3/4 unless you have added displacement or a huge heads/cam set-up...

    We've installed Kooks on our current project SS. If you're going cheap, then Pacesetters are the ones to get. I've never been fond of the SLP LTs.

    thanks guys I was just looking to get some information on pacesetters and I think I found it, I'm from Canada so prices are usually more expensive up here so if anyone knows how much a pair of LT pacesetters cost up here please let me know. Along with that thought if anyone knows where to find some of those state side and ships to Canada again please let me know

    I intend on getting Pacesetter headers and the coated ones are atleast (150$ if not more) ... more expensive then the none coated... is it really worth it? what does it gain you?
