Chase, I'm looking to purchase the Pfadt headers with cats if you have any available.

We have not had a set of Pfadt headers that were not sold before they arrived since probably mid-October. We actually have customers that had them on order that we are now switching to other brands. The only thing I can recommend is call around but between the back order and panic buying that has been going on for the past 2 days I can't imagine anyone still has them. Good luck.

A new option from ARH. 3" downpipes to work with the ARH "50-STATE/CARB Approved" shorty headers. "49-STATE" cats are used in these downpipes.

As owner of ARH I'm available to answer any questions and I'm more than happy to go into the details that any custom project requires. I respectfully welcome anyone to PM or call me and I'll be glad to steer them in the right direction. Thanks.

I have ARH 1 7/8" x 3" and have no issues with them at all. I got in on the very first group buy of these headers in 2009. Actually had the headers before my Camaro. Only problem is discoloring which is normal on any non coated header, and the O2 sensor problems post cat. That is also inherent on most any header with high flow cats.

I bought two sets of ARH headers at the first C5 in 2009 for both Camaros. Great set of headers IMHO.

Chase,

Thinking ahead for the future. I have a 2SS RS M6 with the NPP dual performance exhaust. I like and want to keep the functionality of the NPP exhaust (not to mention the qual tips) but am consider upgrading to hi flow cats, and LT or shorties in the future. Was wondering what combinations you would recommend in that situation to get good sound and performance improvements?

You have not steered me wrong in the past so I would value your ideas.

Thanks,

ARH definitely makes a quality product that performs well.

I would recommend sticking to long tubes. You are going to pay a similar amount of money for a good set of shorties and not see the same kind og gains. If you are leaning towards one of the top tier brands you can't really make a bad decision. Stainless Works, ARH, and Kooks are all great headers. If you wanted to save a few hundred dollars Stainless Power is the best bang for your buck option available in my opinion.

Here is a video Jeff_SS just shared of his Kooks 1 7/8 headers and high flow cats from Apex Motorsports along with the factory NPP exhaust on his 2013 SS. This thing sounds awesome!

Santa usually swings by and picks up a few sets just before the big day. I am sure he could fit another set in the sleigh for you.
