    Question Need More input on Long Tubes

    Hey All, I need any and all info on the best Long Tubes for the LS1s. I have the JetHot LT on my 97 Z, which are great headers. The Clearance, the Fittment, and Power they make. But I just bought my 01 WS6 (M6) back last Sept. and I want to find the best made and Power making LT for my WS6.

    Clearance, Fittment, and Power making are my concern. Money is no issue. I have been lookin at the:

    Dynatech SuperMAXX Stainless Steel Header System, 2000-2002 LS1 F-Body (which includes the Catted Y-pipe)

    But I don't know about the Above concerns. I have read the are bad A$$ headers, but I also have heard they have Clearance issues with for example the Factory K-Member as well as hitting the bottom of the car. I dont want that. If I do go with Stainless Headers I will be getting the Ceramic Coated for the reduction of engine bay temp. But I am not sure which Brand are the best made one.

    The Kooks are also another set I have been looking at also. I know that the SLPs are junk when it comes to my concerns. Thanks for any info that can be provided. Brad

    the supermaxx system is great! I helped install them on a friends car and they fit great - nice looking too! He also has the catted Y. There were no K-member problems and they did not bang on the bottom of the car. So YES on supermaxx.

    Thanks for the replies so far. I think I will be ordering the Dynatech system in the near future. I already have plans to order the Corsa Cat-back. So I think they will complament each other great.

    Hey do you guys know anything about the OBX Headers and are the good? They to me look like Dynatechs LT package. Here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/OBX-H...QQcmdZViewItem

    If you ever plan on lowering, DONT get a paceseter set. Ive had mine on about 3 weeks now, looked under at the welds for the first time, and the entire underside of the collecter has been scuffed. What's stupid is that pacesetter could have engineered them 2 inches higher and been fine, its not anywhere near anything. Ah well. Performance and sound is excellent however.
