    I just happen to drive an automatic convertible (see avatar). Why can't I have SLP headers? Does this mean I can't have any headers or just SLP? Anything I can do to get the headers to fit?

    Thanks

    Im not sure why that is but I just checked a few sponsers and theirs nothing listed on the pacesetter or flowtech headers on not fiting auto convertables. I would just give a sponser a call to double check, I do know SLP headers are weird and theirs ALOT of better choices out their

    I've heard quite a few people say they lost ground clearance with the SLP headers. I agree with the other poster, I would consider something else.

    Maybe start a new post and ask other convertable owners what they run in the subject line.

    SLP's headers suck, thier flow numbers are worse than shorties and loose WAY too much ground clearance. Stick with a good stainless header like Kooks.

    Give up trying to make them fit. SLP long tubes will not fit your car. I would go with QTP long tubes. This is the only set of long tubes I have seen for an LS1 that has a decent set of collectors on them.http://www.ws6project.com/user_stor/...371d37aa55f615
