aFe Power is proud to introduce the all new PFADT Series Tri-Y Headers and performance connection pipes for the 2010-2015 Chevrolet Camaro V8 6.2L engines. These PFADT Series combos utilize mandrel bent 304 stainless steel brushed tubing and have high quality laser cut CNC machined flanges. Available in either Street or Race versions, the Street version comes equipped with dual 200 CPSI high flow catalytic convertors. The PFADT Series tri-y headers are constructed of 1-7/8” primary tubing which merge to 2-1/8” secondary tubes, then into a 3” collector. The tri-y design pairs opposite firing cylinders with equal, specifically tuned primary lengths, maximizing scavenging and torque throughout the powerband. The headers and connection pipes are connected using high grade v-band flanges for a secure leak-free seal.

It's an awesome looking header no doubt but it DOES NOT make much more torque under the curve.
No need to lie to sell them. This is why I'm getting sick of this Forum. smh

I would not go so far as saying it is a lie ,but I do agree the benefits if any are exaggerated .
It is yet another option for those looking for headers .

How about a before and after dyno? Easy, simple, cheap. 1 7/8" 4-into-1 run 1, then tri-y, run 2. IF these are soooooo great, I think two dyno runs would be a no-brainer.

1 7/8" Headers cost anywhere from $300.00 to $1,500.00 (or more). I can't see any appreciable differences in them. Thats why I bought $295.00 Speed-Engineering. They look good, fit good, haven't cracked, loosened, or fell off! Really like them.

I tested these headers when they 1st came out. They Did NOT make much more Toruqe like they say. That's a lie in my book. They will sell they are nice just like any other header.

This is a tough crowd for sure. After reading the Apex post again I think the
"Makes much more torque under the curve, while still increasing top end HP " line is the key issue ,and should be changed . Apex has been a good sponsor and saying he is lying just to sell the headers is a bit harsh . Were I Apex I would change the wording to eliminate the claim ,and just push the fact that they are available again .

To us real gear heads it's upsetting how it's worded. That's where I call BS/lying.
Trust me those headers will sell like candy.

A victim of cutting and pasting the manufacturers information I suppose. Adjustment made for the sake of civility.

Actually, they are. Your perspective is just deceptive. The two forward merges are horizontal. You can see it a little better in this one.
