Y pipes

This is a discussion on Y pipes within the External Engine forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; GMMG are nice too, but pricey again. Those go for around $800 too, new anyway. Not a bad deal though. ...

    What type of headers/y-pipe setup you got ZBoner? My pacesetter Y-pipe goes a long way down the tunnel, I had to chop off a lot of my flowmaster catback to get it to fit. How much do you think I would have ot chop off of the LM if I got those? Would I still have room for the modular design?

    Told ya it was sounded sweet. But cam and valvetrain for that sized cam is not cheap, plus full exhaust and install. That would blow your wad of cash quick. You may need a small load.

    That's the cam's lobe separation angle (LSA). It describes the angular distance between the intake centerline and exhaust centerline of the cam. One of the characteristics of lope.

    noy sure never ran a CB before on my car, only the stock one, i have pacesetters also, and a custom Y pipe from the local LS1 guys here in Cincy.

    i see why you want antoher CB now

    DAMN! That's a lot of shit at one time. You probably could have bought a house for that.

    Yeah, the flowmasters came with the car and sounded really good as just a catback. So, I figured that LT's would improve that sound and give me what I wanted. Nope, it actually got quieter. I am pissed. I was done with the car after the headers and not planning to spend anymore money for aftermarket mods, but I don't know now. I don't want my parents to kill me though, either.

    oh, dude, you can do the install of the headers on the LS1 car your self, it only took me 6 hours without a lift and dicking around and eating dinner and a lot of breaks also

    With his lack of knowledge right now (no offense), I don't think he should be looking at cam kits right now.

    Pacesetter coated LT's + Y-pipe= ~ $520
    SLP loudmouth catback= ~ $420
    Plus install if you don't do it yourself.

    My car was down for 2 weeks for my install. I had work and shit to take care of and didn't work on it everyday. But that car fought me every step of the way. From rusty bolts to fitment issues. I had to get a cherry picker and lift the engine on the passenger side to clear the header. My install experience was a bitch.
