    Pacesetter is an aftermarket manufacturer located in Phoenix. If this is what your car has then it isn't stock.

    SLP offered them but only as an SS option.

    I may be wrong though...

    to my knowledge there were no cars offered with longtubes....the only one that would've been a possibility was the firehawk and I don't think it was either.

    Fairly large difference between factory manifolds and pacesetters. Factory manifolds are cast and have an aluminum shield on them where as the pacesetters will be longtubes and you'll be able to see each primary all the way down.

    They are aftermarket. One of the previous owners of the car put them on. Your car did not come from the factory with those.

    lol everybody does not understand my question. I KNOW theyre aftermarket im trying to figure out if they arent the stock ones though. I dont know how to tell the difference because ive never seen stock, or pacesetter headers in person before. The previous owner said he put them on the car, but my question is are they really pacesetter LT's, or did he lie and say they were and theyre really stock, because the car is not very loud at all at idle and i have an off road y pipe and borla exhaust muffler. My brothers CTS-V is 10x louder than my car at idle. Ill try to get some pics

    No 4th Gens ever came stock with Headers. And ASC did WS6's. SLP did the Firehawk and SS.

    Take a picture. I've never heard of stock longtubes on our cars. But, there seems to be some question.

    you're answering your own question there. If you know they're aftermarket then they're definitely not stock. As to what brand of longtubes they are who knows unless they're stamped or you can get some pictures of the primaries and collectors.

    Confusing thread.

    I think what he's saying is that he knows that pacesetters are aftermarket, but, he has question to as whether or not the headers he's got are indeed pacesetters as the previous owners has stated or if they something else.


    Sounds like someone told him that they could be stock...

    Yeah, confusing and pictures needed.

    lol thank u reef, u understand. Im a noob ive never seen long tubes installed on a car so i dont really know whut they look like. Plus theyre rusted and i would not know where to look on the headers for the stamp. Here are some pics anyways.. I guess according to that link up there theyre LTs..

    Yup, can't tell for sure if they are actuall "Pacesetter" Longtubes, but they are aftermarket LTs. So to answer your question - not stock
