    Sadly now demodded :(

    Your 2002 (along with 2001 MY) has the best flowing exhaust manifolds to ever grace an F-body. If you can't go LT then leave it the way it is as you won't gain much. Instead go for a cutout (preferrably electric) in the I-pipe. Better bang for the buck IMO.

    Do you have an I&M program where you live?

    Yeah, had a problem with my shorties I got for my 00 TA. Shorties are more than likely a bad idea. The ones I had were worse than the stock manifolds.

    Find a local speed shop and go in and BS with them. Tell them that you are looking to do alot of work to your car and the exhaust is just the begining and mabey you can get something worked out.

    I dont know why people wouldnt put cats on them in your area? Some parts makers put cats on there y pipes.

    Why can't you just buy a catted y pipe for your LTs? Just about every manufacturer makes a catted y pipe and it's a bolt on. Even if you went with true duals any muffler shop should be able to put cats on your car.

    you cant reuse your stock cats but you can eaither buy a catted y or just buy cats ans have a muffler shop fab something up. P.S. don't get the TSP catted y.

    The stock exhaust manifolds flow very well making shorties pretty much a waste of $$$. Mac mids have shown pretty good gains though and I've heard they are a good alternative to LTs.

    I had the Edelbrock Shorties (ceramic coated) on my 00TA. If you want to throw your money away you can just give it to me, and I'll tell you that with that mod you will still have more power without them than with them.

    I wont even sell my old shorties, My conscience wont let me screw someone over like that.

    if thje people you've been going to can't figure out how to get cats on with headers then don't ever take you car to them for anything... it's not that hard...

    Are you saying that the shops you've been can't put cats on or they refuse to? (I had one guy say, "That's a federal offense, sir.")
