Also make sure you use OEM gaskets. TSP also sells them and they are cheap so just add some new ones onto the order.

Installed mine not too long ago and I love them! super easy install too. only thing is one of the tubes on the passenger header is really close to the frame and sometimes rubs causing a slight rattle....

The 2" headers have been pretty popular so far! I personally like the 2" header if your going to do more mods like h/c or blower

What kind of question is that? Lol I have put on a lot of headers.
The passenger side header is hitting the outer side of the k member straight across from the starter. Car has 3,000 miles on it so its not like the car is messed up.

No need for all those fancy bolts unless your just trying to make it look purty.
You can reuse your stock GM mls header gaskets but if GM gaskets come with the order it's cool.

The 2" TSP headers I purchased rubbed on the passenger side k-member as someone else had posted and the front primary on the driver side was against the motor mount.

Using an end grinder to clearance the motor mount was easy. I didn't want to dent the primary so I cut out about a 1 1/2" X 3/4" area of the k-member where it rubbed and welded in a piece of plate.

It's weird how rubbing headers produce a "grinding" noise. I'm just glad it wasn't my clutch or transmission.

I have a 2013 zl1 auto car.. the 2" primary headers fit perfectly. . I used the extension pipes that came with it and hooked it to factory catback.. works great.
