www.AmericanRacingHeaders.com "1LE RPO" Tech/Install Help thread.....................

Wanted to reach out to the 1LE owners along with our other Tech/Install help thread in the exhaust section, many of you I've spoken with on the phone have given me some insight on this section.

Thanks very much,

Steve

Stupid question for you steve are the headers installed with the car on a lift or can they be installed from the top down? Thank you.

I had ARH headers installed while my car was at Vengeance Racing.

The quality of these headers is outstanding. After talking to the guys at Vengeance, all they use are ARH systems. They are top of the line regarding stainless grade, fit, and performance.

I installed the ARH long tubes and catless x pipe on my '14 1LE in my garage with it up on 10" race ramps. I followed the instructions that came with them and it was a very straightforward install. The only issue I ran into was on the passenger side after insalled there is one bolt stud for the fender heatshield sticking in toward one of the tubes. It was maybe 1/8" away from the tube but when running the car and the engine torquing it would come in contact with the bolt stud. I removed 1/2" of the stud and haven't had any other issues. Oh and with the NPP exhaust baffles open it sounds incredible!!!!!!!!!

I had the same minor stud issue and fixed it easily the same way. And fully agree on the awesome sound too!

I'm debating between keeping mine stock or installing 17/8 or 2 inch long flow headers with cats and x pipe , my only concern is the heat ceated by the headers will they damage any near by wires or accessories over time ?

We have these installed on 1000's of Camaro5's, no issues with heat, on the contrary the 304ss does a better job of containing the heat and moving it downstream than the OEM cast iron logs that act as heat sinks from the factory.

HTH

Honestly there is less heat. Before my headers when I parked the car in the garage and closed the doors it would be very warm in there for hours. After installing the headers the car doesn't seem to put off nearly the heat that it used to for hours. That's just what I noticed anyway

Thanks which headers did you install ? I drive to Florida from New York and just want to make sure nothing will melt or catch fire from headers.

304ss is one of the best materials to retain heat and move it downstream, zero issues with wires on 1000's of Camaro's.

awsome headers i just had them installed last month at JTM MOTORSPORTS that is in the same building as ARH ...go to JTM MOTORSPORTS on face book you can see pics of the install on my 14 silver 1LE ..along with a Kaotic cam package from vengeance racing. I went with catted 1-7/8 in primary into 3 inch and kept my NPP dual modes ..These headers are a work of art and perform not to mention sound insane .I have been fortunate enough to have a tour of ARH and all the guys right down to the owner are awsome and the shop is like a fine tuned watch ..they are perfectionist and they do great

I assume you had to get a tune? So you were ok with voiding the warranty to do this? I am contemplating doing this myself! So just curious. Any concerns? Is the gain and sound worth loosing the warranty?
Thanks for sharing!

i did the same thing with my shelby gt 7 years ago except i put a supercharger on it ..so yes i am ok with it .....as for the camaro my chevy dealer offers arh headers cai and tune and warranty is still intact...but i did cam and valve springs oil pump and c5r timing chain so i guess I'm on my own ...if it were my only car i may not have but since i have a 14 ss sedan and ram 1500 i don't care as the 1LE is a toy..Is it worth it ?? YES the car is now fun and powered like it should have been at the least ..it made 480 430 ..i did it when car had 380 miles on it ..now has 1000 and its getting faster everytime i drive it as its breaking in ...good luck on your decision!!

No drone at all .in fact I have kept my dual mode factory mufflers when ther open and you drive normal or at idle there Good sound no drone mid volume ..from 4k to 7k there wake the dead loud..but close them and cruise on hwy at 75 and you would think your in a caddy it's so quiet.. The headers don't cause drone the mufflers you pick do...no offense but i am respectable to my neighbors and try to pull away as quiet as possible but I'm not going not mod my cars cause im worried about what neighbors think .sorry that's just how the car sounds ..you should here my Shelby start up I have to walk away 100 ft till it warms up and idles down its pain full ..haha
