Headers for SSW Catbacks

I have a set of factory installed SSW catbacks. Are there any headers that will bolt to these?

Not sure what you're talking about. The "factory" doesn't install anything but the OEM exhaust. The dealership will install a GMPP catback system, or maybe another if you pay them to do it. But I've never heard of SSW??? Do you mean Stainless Works (SW)???

Any headers works with it. Just have to have the catless or catted midpipes that is the same brand as the headers you get. They all tend to end where the stock exhaust ends. Your catback system is designed to bolt on at the same location as stock.

Just about any set of long tubes should fit. We carry Stainless Works headers that will bolt up for sure. Sounds like a good match to us. ARH makes a great header as well but if you already have a Stainless Works catback you might as well keep it all SW.

I highly recommend the SSW headers. I put the 2" primaries on mine and it sounds great. The quality of the design and the construction was top-notch. They fit right up, no struggling or squeezing, and Paul at SSW was more than helpful. Didn't have time to get some solid numbers while I was home, but the "butt dyno" approved.

I ended up wrapping mine, but they look great either way, and they sound even better. Makes the LS3 sound the way it was supposed to

Most LT headers w/ or w/o cats will bolt into the stock mid pipe.

Any header design to utilize the factory connection points should work. If it were me I would just stick with Stainless Works from front to rear.

With a proper tune you can see gains of 40+rwhp with a set of long tubes.

You can see close those kinds of numbers even before the tune.

The can will run without one but you will get a CEL and will be leaving a lot of power on the table.
