    Which LT's and ORY...Pacesetter or MAC

    Ok, I have narrowed it down to two choices for LT's and ORY:

    Pacesetter or MAC...?

    Mods listed in Sig, which one will give me the most gains and meanest sound. I know a lot out there have Pacesetter so anyone with the MAC system please speak up. I've been to LS1sounds.com, i'm looking for opinions from people. Thanks.

    You arent going to get any dramatic gains over one or the other. General consensus is that all headers will dyno within 5hp of each other. The sound will be pretty much the same also.

    Says who? The pacesetters are probably the best bang for the buck header out there. If I didn't get such a good deal on my Mac's I would've gone a different route.

    i had pacesetter on my fist car and was completely happy with them. i wanted to go with a name brand this time so i spent the money for Hooker and its the same thing you cant tell. i say go with pacesetter they are reliable and cheap. but make sure they are ceramic coated

    I have also been looking for some headers, along with a DMH cutout. if i just get a set of pacesetters from ws6store.com and then buy a DMH cutout and put it in on the single pipe of my Y will that work. keep in mind my Y pipe is stock , but i guess i could get an aftermarket one. I'm really just trying to save some money and leave my cats and tips the same but then get some power w/ headers along with running cutouts.
    What do ya think?

    Google: LS1 yp-pipe or Pacesetter and plenty of options will pop up. Cheapest Ceramic LT's I have found are Pacesetters and ORY (non coated) on Ebay for $500 + $20 shipping. Flowtech Lt's and ORYis very close in that price range as well.

    Also

    MAC: 2 1/2 collectors and ORY to 3" connector to I-pipe

    Pacesetter: 3" collectors to 3" y-pipe to 3" I-pipe

    There's going to be both lost HP and TQ w/the smaller dia. y-pipe and the fact the MAC's are mid-length and the other are true LT's...
