Just ordered mine on Saturday knowing they were top notch. They shipped today. No problems with customer service either. No-brainer.

trans, what exhaust do you have? I put my JBA system in over the winter. Today is the first day I drove with BOTH windows down. I noticed some pretty rediculous reflections coming off houses. I'm really starting to think I'm going to need to drop some new mufflers in. I haven't installed the headers yet... still stock mids.

Do you "have to" get a tune for the headers???

Only have 3600 miles on the car. Was gonna do headers with the cats, and I already have a Airaid CAI.

You don't have to, but you should.

If you refuse to do it, get an ELM327 module and Torque Pro on your phone and clear your own exhaust-related CEL.

With that said, I'm pretty sure I would be running lean with a Fastlane intake and headers. Safest path is to tune.

Lol. Tune is not necessary. I assume that you don't drag every weekend so the occasional on ramp with no tune will be fine. Recommended sure, not a must by any means though.

They are assuming their website is up to date. I was going to order the 2", but didn't want to wait.

2 shops said tune is a must...2 others said not needed right away.
(Said would cause detonation and pit the pistons and damage the head gasket.

96500 miles to go before I can order the headers at that point lol.

Not gonna let GM off the warranty hook this early with the car.

If it's just a street driven car for the most part then you're not going to see those problems. Headers and no tune can go lean at WOT. If you don't spend a lot of time in WOT, then you'll probably be fine with no tune.
