    Check with Mark at KY Speed (send a PM to "marksls1ta") and he can probably tell you will work best with a lowered car. I have Kooks on ours and they tuck up nice against the underbody. Our car is not lowered though, so I still have lots of clearance.

    in general AFR, and kooks will be the most tucked up...i am mixed on my QTP ...the headers themselves are tucked pretty well..but the y pipe blows hard and hangs way to low.

    my Lt's have the same clearance my stock manifolds have. I haven't scraped ever. you might have to take things much slower tho.

    The LT's were never a problem for me. It's always been the Y. I ran cats which diminishes the clearance even more. If you can, I would try and find a 2.5" Y or have one custom made. 3" for minor mods is overkill anyways. That would've net me enough to stay lowered.

    Headers will be fine my friend has pacesetters with those eibach sportlines which are low and kinda useless. That car sat so low the féin and rear were all scraped when he brought it into get the wings west lip kit for with the cme rear bumper and I had hime pull it in and out so I wouldn't be responsable for any undercarridge damage. It the headers cleared but everthing else scraped. We had to get creative getting it out. I can get a z06 in and out dine but those springs were terable and the ride quality was even worse was like it had wood blocks, handled turns good bit that's about the only good thing.

    you front end looks pretty low, i have pacesetters with eibach progressive springs, seems like i bottom out on the crossmember instead of the header, but only on big dips or bumps.

    Not sure about pacesetters, but my car is about the same on the front and lowering in the rear (prokit springs) and I have been running kooks for several yrs now. Occasionally I will scrap the cat/y-pipe on a higher speed bump. As long as you get a set that tucks against the body nicely, you should be fine.

    If you have the sportlines which should be red in color they are terrible springs. The car looks nice with them but being a DD you will scrape it all the time. Going with headers you will most likely have some issues because your front end does seem to be low. Then again you will have some tell you that they dont have any issues with them. I had sportlines on my last Z and scraped and dented my ypipe bad and that was with aftermarket shorty headers with the ypipe nicely tucked, not to mention my exhaust tips were in bad shape after scraping them on driveways.

    anytime you lower a car its going to hit somethings, my car is a little lower than yours and i have LT (OBX), have they scraped? yes, do i hit everything? no. just be carefull.
