I have their headers on my '02. Hands down the best $$ I spent on that car - will be going with Kooks on the 2010 too.

Congrats!

Please post up the results from the dyno.
Kooks makes some nice headers for these LSx engines.

You are correct Sir...The headers for the G8 should bolt right on...they need to fabricate the rest..X pipe and that Cat back...hopefully it won't take very long

Race exhaust = no cat's

no cat's = not emmission legal.

I've had long tube headers and still passed emmissions testing in Cali, they have the strictist laws out there. You have to have a C.A.R.B. # and you're good.

EDIT
I think they will offer one..but mine will be 3 x 2.5...I'm not planning any huge mods...well not till the warranty is gone anyway....but I know they did an SRT 8 full 3"..so I'm sure they would offer it.

I hope they do a couple dyno pulls before and after....if they don't, SHAME ON THEM. They NEED to know what #'s they will be putting out.

I'd LOVE to see some video and pix of everything installed. Pleeeeeze post them up.

There are no CARB-legal LTs out there because they all move the cats' out of their OEM locations. It's been my experience that the cats' can run significantly cooler when they're that car away from the exhaust ports and won't "light-off" (that is get up to their proper heat range where they burn off emissions) quick enough and sometimes not at all. I've measured temperatures at the primaries and compared to pre' and aft' cat' temperatures and find significant differences, especially when the engine is idling. Unless you get a spot-on tune, and have a good cat', I don't think it will be easy to pass a sniffer in CA - especially the cold-start tests. You won't find a CARB-legal OBDII LT out there - period. If you do, point me in that direction!
