Anyone have any trouble with them coming loose? Or do they come with special bolts? Really want these headers but am kinda leery about leaks around the heads after awhile.

Doug Thorley shorties have to be welded to the downpipe just above the cats, and the original downpipe must be cut according to their instructions. They do not bolt directly. This makes installation something of a pain, since most people cannot do it themselves; however, this also means there is very little chance that they will leak.

EDIT: If you're referring to the connection to the engine block exhaust manifold, you reuse the stock header bolts; so, there's just as much chance of a leak there as with any other headers.

Oh ya sorry I did mean the connection to the block. I didn't know if the torque specs for the headers would be less then for the iron manifolds. Thanks

Trevorw24 where did you order your DTs? I've been researching a good exhaust/headers setup and I concluded on the DTs with no resonators and MRT V2s and man was I happy when I found your thread...it's exactly what I was looking for! I have a 1LS too...your videos are great and really put the sound into perspective.

They torque on just like OEM's and are sequenced from the middle to the outside...a key step.

I've had maybe two or three cars I've had to retorque after 500 miles or so, but none of them were "loose."....maybe a 1/8th of a turn at most.

We have them in stock and should be the only dealer with them left. Currently there are only 7 sets left and the next batch of them isn't scheduled to drop for about 6 more weeks.

Pleased to help if you have any more questions on these. They are a great product for the V6 Camaro!

Thanks for all the positive feedback and comments on these gang.

My DT Shorties arrived yesterday and they look GREAT, now all I have to dpo is get the time to have them installed. I will be showing them to other Camaro owners on Sept 10th at a get together where a bunch of guys will be installing ABL upgrades into their cars. I also need to see when I can pay a friend a visit who said he would help me install the DT Shorties.
