The bigger issue is do LS3 headers fit with the belly pan and all the other "ZL1" stuff . .

Stainless Works and SLP fit headers for the ZL1

Here are the American Racing headers on my car.



They are the same header as used on the SS.

I have SLP Headers on my car. They are part of the SLP Stage III package for the ZL1.
They are made with 100% stainless steel made in USA and are cut, bent, coated and polished all at their facilities in NJ. So they are made in USA with USA steel.

The had to cut some of the cover under the car for fit, but it's neat and clean.

I can take pictures if you need them.

Also, I have had NUMEROUS comments about how great they sound with the stock exhaust. I am VERY happy with them.

I believe most anything that fits SS will fit ZL1. It sounds like the belly pan will have to be trimmed around the collectors, but otherwise, it shouldn't be a problem. That's what I noticed from Redline's build anyway...

I welcome any and all pics' you guys are willing to share I can't do this mod', but it is just nice to know for referrence

Will the SS LT Kooks fit?
Do theses have to be tuned like on the SS?

I have a set from my LS3 SS I want to put on the ZL1 the flanges look ok but not sure about the fitment.

help!

I don't see what would be any different about a ZL1 header...everything's the same to do with that part with the SS..
