Well I just went racing this weekend (road course) the car needs a bunch of stuff suspension/tires and more HP... those little stripped down Honduhs squirted around that tight little track pretty well.

I need to get it so I can shave another 3-4 seconds off my time.

Just put a set on my car. The steering shaft is about 1/4 inch from the header tube. At times when turning I can feel a vibration for just a second. The rubber boot is laying on the tube. Any idea's?

2010 Camaro SS....Thanks

you've got the same problem i encountered...that vibration during a turn is the metal clasp rubbing the header tube. initially my whole boot was making contact and i could feel more resistance on the steering wheel, then i disconnected and reconnected the shaft, but had a nasty vibration at certain points during turns.
you can probably just take some channel locks and press it down so it stops hitting it. worked for me

I'll try that when it cools off, thanks.

Looking at this side-by-side, it certainly isn't hard to believe their claim of 24-27 lb weight savings. Less weight =

How does that compare with other leading headers?
