    I tried the TSP y and it fit like crap lucky me some one bought it from me. The drivers side will not fit right. If you do get the pipe on the drivers side it will be slammed against the floor right by your break lines which is bad. The headers I have are not the same though so i am able to use a TSP with these headers... all I know is when I had the ebay LT I had to have a shop make mine.

    It doesn't look like it will. Lpp has almost the same design as the pacesetter y. Instead of having a offset bent right before the collector it is stamped so it can fit over the bump in the floor board and the brake lines under the car. I hate that it just looks so cheap and restricts flow really bad. I know that back when I had the ebay headers I had to have my exhaust shop modify mine to fit right there. Im just going to wait for mine from LsXtreme. Hopefully the lpp will work for ya bro

    If you want a Y pipe that fits outta the box you're gonna need to buy headers that come WITH a y pipe.

    Yeah,that pic was taken as we were making it(just tack welded together) but we got it lookin prettier later! I just wanted to show what you have to do to make different parts work together!My E-bay headers are hooked up to an Edelbrock ORY. When you're piecing different brand parts together,dont expect them to match-up!!!

    I myself like the LLP ypipe. It fits great on my OBX headers. OBX headers are the higherend side of the EBAY headers. Not too sure about the other ebay headers but my combo was a winner with NO modifications to the y or the headers to have them meet. Plus they have one of the best merges compared to alot of the bigger named products.

    OBX headers come with their own y pipe, why use an LPP? As for the higher end of Ebay headers, most would say not. They were designed off the old FLP headers, one of the oldest LS1 f body headers which no one else uses anymore. LPPs were desined off the Hooker/Edelbrock design which made most previous style headers (Mac, FLP, etc) obsolete. Glad you like em tho.

    The OBX headers I have are the non kit type. It doesnt come with the cats and Ypipe cause its a totally different design. The OBX Headers I have are a stand alone. Theres a guy around here that has the kit. Im not sure if he's installed yet. I even asked the company if they sell a Y-pipe for these style headers and they told me they do not make y-pipe for these. From a "now" stand point, compared to alot of the other ebay headers that are floating around there, they are one of the better built ones. As you can see from my picture, the OBX slip on headers have a one piece design when it comes to the primaries unlike alot of the other lower quality ebay headers which have multiple sections. You can even see in the pic below on the OBX kit that the primaries are multiple sections. all i gotta say is... I like what I got. As soon as I get a sec, im gonna post a sound clip.
    Heres what I have


    And heres the Kit type

    Oh, I'd never seen those. They are nicer than the kit ones. They look to me like a stainless version of Pacesetters. Would be nice if they came without the airpipes tho.

    THATS WHAT IVE BEEN SAYING LOL!
    Im not sure, but they just might make the slip on type for the 00-02s with out the EGR/AIR tubing. I never really was looking for those kind cause i wanted to make my install as painless and mod free as possible so I got all the provisions and their hooked up. If anything you could always just block them off like alot of people do.

    Theres a ton on Ebay. As for the gaskets, I couldnt tell you. I myself got some NAPA Felpros (came with AIR/EGR gaskets too) NO leaks yet.
    I would post a link but im not sure if I can when it comes to ebay. (i got a wrist slap earlier ) but just type in LS1 block off plates in the search bar and it will pop up a bunch

    Speedinc sells nice ones pretty cheap. They're not a sponsor or I'd post a link.

    Online sponsors sell the GM gaskets. They're the only ones I'd use.
