I ordered from here, paid the extra for the faster shipping. They were at my door the next day. Now that was fast.

Knowing you did the work yourself is self satisfaction to me.

Good Luck, Looking forward to what you do and what you think of them afterwords.

I've been waiting for your write up rtcatman because I knew you'd write it up with great thought and detail!

I'll be saving this thread for reference in the future in case I ever go with LTs.

Looking forward to hearing your impressions on the sound and the power.

Thank - you, wanted to give a little heads up to those who are thinking about installing a set of LT headers.

Thank - you. Took a little while to put all of that together, but thought it hopefully help people wanting to do the install someday.

Power: most defiantly you can tell the difference.

Sound: yes defiantly louder, to the point I am ordering a Magnaflow resonated X pipe and going to replace the stock H pipe section. There is to much rasp and annoying sounds in the 2500 to 3000 rpm range at WOT. From what I have been reading and asking others is that the X pipe will help tone this down. Well worth it for me to try.

A FUBAR in the spell checker. I wasn't paying attention. Thanks for pointing this out.

Thank - you to all those who have helped me out the past couple days on making my decision to order the Magnaflow resonated X pipe to help tone down the rasp. It should be here in a few days. Install within a couple weeks.

Your welcome, and thank you for helping with all my questions. The Res. X is enroute. I will install it as soon as I can. driving it again on the other hand will be a little while now as our area is undera blanket of snow and salt. But more videos, updates and when the track opens more 1/4 mile passes will be updated thruout the forum.

...........go back and read the opening post again. If you want to skip the top 90% I understand, but the time is in there, near the bottom. I wasn't looking for a speed record that is for sure.

Thanks for the vids, sounds good. Just not sure how it would with my v1's probably too much even for me.

Your welcome Mike.

It sounds GREAT on the videos, because the video didn't capture the rasp that I had in the 2500 - 3500 rpm. Which is why the Mganaflow is on its way home. Should help tame down the annoying portion that I do not want from my exhaust.

As I mentioned before, I think the magnaflow resonated X will be a great addition. Although it may tone down your sound a bit, I think it will get rid of the rasp and will lower your exhaust note a bit creating a very sweet overall sound.

Looking forward to what you find out!

Thank - you Keith, I am OK with it toning down the sound, as I wasn't going for the loud factor. I just wanted the added HP of the LT's. Your advice on the Magnaflow was certainly helpful in my decision.
