Talking STAINLESS POWER: Affordable Performance and Sound | Starting at $599 SHIPPED @ Apex!

These Stainless Power headers from Stainless Works have 1 - 7/8" primaries with 3" slip fit collectors. Integrated merge spikes, 3" lead pipes and metal matrix cats that fit the factory connection point on 2010-2012 6.2L Camaro.

Stainless Power 10-12 Camaro 304L SS Header (Headers Only): $599 SHIPPED

Stainless Power 10-12 Camaro 304L SS Header w/ Off Road Pipes: $699 SHIPPED

Stainless Power 10-12 Camaro 304L SS Header w/ Cats: $899 SHIPPED


Stainless Works has introduced a new brand of value-line header and exhaust products made for the high-quality market, yet specially priced for the cost conscious consumer. Stainless Power is a brand name line of exhaust products that has been designed and manufactured to the exacting standards made famous by Stainless Works. These products are exclusively made and inspected to their exact specifications and made from the highest quality 304L Stainless Steel.






WHY IS STAINLESS WORKS MAKING A STAINLESS POWER HEADER?

Stainless Works has been under siege from several unscrupulous companies who have taken their header designs overseas for duplication. After we use their, time, technology and money to develop these products, copycat companies simply steal them, have them manufactured at a significant discount overseas and sell them as their own. They are selling dozens of their header designs right here in the US. This practice, for which they have little recourse, has resulted in a loss of market share for their products. Stainless Works has simply taken this process as their own to combat this unscrupulous practice. All these subcontracted products will be branded and labeled as "Stainless Power".


DOES THAT MEAN THAT STAINLESS WORKS IS NO LONGER MAKING HEADERS IN THE USA?

No, Stainless Works continues to make headers in the USA under the Stainless Works brand. Today and into the future they will continue to make the same application headers both in their plant in Ohio as well as subcontracting under the "Stainless Power" brand. In fact, Stainless Works still is manufacturing all the lead pipes and X-pipes in their plant, and providing catalytic converters, O2 extensions, clamps and header bolts for the Stainless Power product line. They have, to date, selected only a few header products to be subcontracted under the "Stainless Power" brand. Not only will they continue full production for the current "Stainless Works" products, but in fact, they are currently increasing their commitment to manufacturing headers and exhaust product in Ohio. They are breaking ground in December 2011 for a large expansion, and have ordered another all electric CNC mandrel bender with stackable tooling capable of 1D bending up to 3" dia. in 304 SS Tubing. This expansion and investment of over $1MM is designed to increase capacity and reduce lead times for their valued customers proving their continued commitment to the Stainless Works' "Made in the USA" tradition.


WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO PRODUCTS, "STAINLESS WORKS" VS. "STAINLESS POWER"?

Because they have designed both products to have very similar acceptance standards, there are few visual differences. The main differences will be in the header flanges, which are slightly different. For instance, the "Stainless Power" LS1 header flanges contain four oval holes, while their "Stainless Works" header flanges contain all round holes. They continue to provide a full lifetime warranty for their "Stainless Works" header products, but only a two year warranty for the "Stainless Power" products. They carefully control all aspects of their internally produced "Stainless Works" products, allowing them to offer a full lifetime warranty for these products, something they cannot effectively do for subcontracted "Stainless Power" products.


HOW WILL I BE CERTAIN THAT I AM NOT GETTING THE CHEAPER HEADERS WHEN I ORDER AMERICAN MADE "STAINLESS WORKS" PRODUCTS?

Stainless Works reputation as a top designer, developer and manufacturer of American made products will never be compromised by offering the Stainless Power value product line. They have no interest in subcontracting Stainless Works products and pretending that they are mad in their facility. The two product lines are kept fully separate, boxed and stored under different part numbers, and sold under the different brands. At any time, anyone is welcome to visit their facility to verify that this is the case, 100% of the time. They are deeply committed to this, and take great pride in manufacturing Stainless Works products at their Ohio facility in the USA.

Chase,

If I have the CA11CB with factory connection, are there headers that will bolt up to it without a custom install?

Thanks,
Rob

Yes they will. These headers are dimensionally identical to the Stainless Works for factory connect.

Is it possible to just buy the catless connections? I already have the headers with cats, but think it would be cool to swap the straight pipe to go to the track.

I do not think so but they are just a straight section of pipe. Any exhaust shop can hook you up.

Does putting headers on void your warranty?

This is a question we get asked often and is a major concern for many people as they start down the road of modifying their vehicle. Search the web and you will find plenty of answers from the internet “experts”, but as usual most of them totally incorrect. Despite all the bad information out there, it is pretty cut and dry because there is federal law on the matter. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)) regulates warranties and protects the consumer. This legislation was enacted in 1975 in response to widespread deceptive warranty practices in many industries. Here is how SEMA summarizes things:
The essence of the law concerning aftermarket auto parts is that a vehicle manufacturer may not condition a written or implied warranty on the consumers using parts or services which are identified by brand, trade, or corporate name (such as the vehicle maker’s brand) unless the parts or service are provided free of charge. The law means that the use of an aftermarket part alone is not cause for denying the warranty. However, the law’s protection does not extend to aftermarket parts in situations where such parts actually caused the damage being claimed under the warranty. Further, consumers are advised to be aware of any specific terms or conditions stated in the warranty which may result in its being voided. The law states in relevant part: No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumers using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade or corporate name… (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)).
So in short, this means a service department or automotive manufacturer can not void your warranty simply because you have installed aftermarket parts or have modified your vehicle. They can, however, deny a warranty claim if they can prove the issue in question was a direct result of the installed part or modification. Unfortunately, plenty of people have stories of going to a dealership service department with a warranty issue and being denied because they have modified their vehicle. There are definitely shady service departments out there who will try to get over on their customers if they can, but this is illegal and it is up to the customer to know the law and stand up.

With headers the situation is somewhat complicated because in addition to simply installing the headers you also need a tune. The tune in your ECU (Electronic Control Unit) controls every aspect of the engine’s operation: fuel and ignition maps, variable valve timing, rev limits, speed limiters, and many other functions. From the factory your car’s tune is set pretty conservatively in an effort to strike a balance between performance, emissions, fuel mileage, and reliability. Air/fuel ratios are generally a little rich and ignition timing is generally retarded to reduce the likelihood of detonation. Rev limits are set low to reduce wear and stress. And on and on it goes. Adjusting many of these setting will result in more power and better performance but, like almost all performance upgrades, it is a give and take. A leaner fuel map and advanced timing will add power but leaves you more vulnerable to detonation. A higher red line allows you to run out a little longer but at the cost of additional wear and an increased risk of a catastrophic failure. An experienced professional tuner is capable of writing a well balanced customized performance tune, but the OEM manufacturers (AKA: the guys who are ultimately on the hook for the warranty) see it differently.

The OEM manufacture’s stance is that a change to the stock tune exposes the engine and drive train to unknown and untested stresses that can negatively impact reliability. Because of the "unknown" consequences of this additional stress it is their policy to cancel all remaining engine and drive train warranty. Below are PDF copies of Ford and GM service bulletins laying out their policies on the matter:

GM 09-06-04-026A

Ford 11-7-7

If you get a tune and then have an engine or drive train problem you are most likely going to have a serious uphill battle. The thing to keep in mind is that the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)) still applies. The burden of proof is on the service department and manufacturer to prove the issue in question is the direct result of the tune. If they can not do that then they have to honor the warranty. If they can you are on the hook.

A tune is absolutely necessary for anyone looking to make more power. My advice is to focus on other aspects of your vehicle until you are prepared to take responsibility if an issue were to arise. Once you are, the sky is the limit.
