Sounded awesome on the take off video. Sucks you had so much trouble with the install. I have read,in another thred, that the older style Kooks don't bolt right up to the ZL1. They have since changed something so the headers fit the SS and ZL1. I have the Kooks off my SS, so I will be most likely making the same dents/mods you did. As I don't want to buy new headers when these only have like 2000 miles on them.

Sounds nice. How loud is it at steady cruise? CEL yet?

I'm not use to it. I had to be careful as those tires are no goo at those speeds.

Not much louder than stock at cruise. Only noticeably at WOT.

Only CEL light for misfires because the ignition wires randomly keep coming disconnected by themselves. I have checked them all and they are all on but randomly they come off. It's like the motor twist and then the wire fall off the spark plug end only.

The good thing is you cannot see where I pressed it. You will be fine.

Car sounds great. How long ago did you buy the headers? Where did you buy them? I'm just curious if you have the old style or new style. I loved the Kooks on my GTO and I am thinking of getting them on the ZL1 but there are other options if i am going to have these types of fitment issues.

These were from Maryland Speed. They had the best price. Now I think I know why they were cheaper. I didn't know there were 2 styles. I was pissed that the coating had to be messed up.

The new style supercedes the older version and was supposed to be changed months ago back in 2012. You should call Kooks directly; they're friendly and helpful.

That shouldn't happen at all. you can tell if the wires are on correctly when you feel and hear a click.

I know! I wish I could figure this out. I've triple checked them snapping on the plugs.

Good to know. I was going to get mine coated to help with underhood temps, I will now wait until after install to verify any fitment issues and then remove and get them coated next winter. That spark plug wire thing would drive me bonkers.

How do I get rid of these codes? Does it need to be tuned?
