    LTs or Cat back

    Hey guys, a friend of mine is selling

    Edelbrock Long Tubes Y-Pipe With Duel Cutouts - $350

    Magnaflow catback - $200

    I Know the edelbrock is not very popular but for the price I was leaning toward them. Any input on things i should check or not to waste my time and money with the LTs and just get the catback untill i have money for better LTs. Also would i be able to put the LTs and Y on without any problems without a different catback? Sorry I'm just starting to mod and don't know very much about ls1s yet. Any input would be great. Thanks guys. Also I only have money for 1 of them, not both right now. I also have a SLP lid and plan on getting plugs and wires when I do the LTs.

    The Edelbrock headers are awesome. Jump on them at that price. They are still fairly new so they are not too common but guys that have them love em. The are stepped and have really good 3.5" merge collectors so they should make great power.

    For those prices, you can't afford to pass both of them up, assuming they are in good shape. You'll be spending more money by waiting. I say, get them both now.

    Yea, I don't think he has had many people look at the catback so I will see if i can put a little down for him to hold them for a couple weeks until i get paid. Thanks for all the help guys. How long does it take to put LTs OFYs on?

    Depends on experience and tools available.
    With a lift, headers can be done in under 4 hours for most. A jackstand install might take a little longer. Some can do it in a day while it takes some a weekend. Hell, mine was down for 2 weeks while I worked on it every now and then between school, work, and other obligations. I'd set aside a weekend for beginners.

    My friend will be working with me. He is in his 3 year of autoschool. So I was thinking with the two of us we should be able to do it in 6 hours, inless we run into some big problems.
