    Stainless Steel LT Headers

    Has any one herd of these SBC Chevrolet XS Super Competition Stainless Steel Headers that are seen on ebay. I live in Long Island NY on the water, so i figured im going to need stainless steel headers if i want them too last, however they generally cost a great amount. I am trying to pick up a cheaper set of stainless steel headers for a decent price, but also trying to get a good amount of performance out of them. If any could fill me in if these are any good, or if they know of any that are cheap and work well that would be great.

    i have the same 'Ebay" stainless steel headers as well. you will find no other new stainless steel headers for that price. so far i have had no problems with them at all. a good y-pipe for them is the 2 piece Pacesetter 3" ORY ($115+shipping). Here is a link to my car with the "Ebay" SS headers. I saw gains of 26rwhp and 22rwtq with them...

    I'm in the process of installing them now... did you have to make modifications to that pacesetter y-pipe for it to fit?

    Problem with the pacesetter y-pipe is that I think its aluminum.

    Is the 2 piece pacesetter 3" ORY the only Y-Pipe that is know to fit with these headers? or will i be able to use a texas speed catted Y-Pipe. Also how is the sound with these, if i am running a LM cat back exhaust is it as loud as the pacesetter headers make it. Many people say the pacesetter headers and LM are way too loud and raspy, was just wondering if these headers will make it just as loud.

    Probably will. As far as exhaust sound, most, if not all longtubes will provide the same result, no matter what brand. So, pacesetters with LM will probably sound identical to Kooks with LM.

    i had them modify the 2 piece y-pipe after they fit the pipes to each of the collectors. that's why i went with the 2 piece y-pipe. the modifications made were not major by any means.

    listen to the clip that i posted above. I have the LM on my car, and it seriously screams. i love it. at WOT it sounds like a NASCAR. I haven't noticed raspiness that much but then again, i am in front of the exhaust moving away from it. people will hear you. trust me...

    If you live on Long Island you may want to check our American Racing Headers. They make stainless headers for LS1 and LS2's
