    Whats up with my PaceSetters

    Ok so when I bought my 2000 SS, it came with an LS6 intake, and set of pacesetters, well I was moving at the same time, and long story short, 1 header has been in my closet, and the other in the back seat, well i finally brought the other inside the other day, and noticed they look way different

    passenger side pipes sweet away from the front bracket at about a 45, back to the collector, and the driver side comes out, drops almost straight down, then back.

    Now I knew they should be a little different, because of the starter, steering column, etc being different on each side, but these two are way different.

    If i put the front brackets together, the whole driver side heard is about 4 inches shorter than the passenger, and they stick out at different angles.

    Reassure me that this is ok, lol....i can post pics if necessary

    that's normal, mine are the same. When you install with ORY it all fits together.

    Thats how they are. And they do exit at an angle so the driver side can clear shifter linkage, I think thats what down there...

    that dent is there so the pipe can clear the frame on the drivers side
