Wonder how many threads will pop up...

"is there a difference"

"thinking about changing"

And the ole faithful...

"what's the best header"...

Don't forget:

Do I need a tune with them
Will they void my warranty
will they attach to my stock catback
Are the coated
Do I use the stock gaskets
Are they as good as my OBX's
Will they make my penis bigger
Do they work with a long throw shifter

I believe the test was done by Pfadt, but could be wrong.

I know that JDP and Vengeance were both involved in the third party testing but I am not sure if that chart is from one of them or someone else.

All of the dyno charts Pfadt has posted for the Corvette headers were done by various third party sources.

Ah gotcha - I mean Pfadt's corvette headers speak for themselves so I wasn't doubting the numbers. But nice to know they use 3rd party dynos.

So Vengeance was/is involved? Time to make a phone call! Anyone in the market for a very lightly used set of ARH headers?

Sorry guys we've been super busy this week! I've got some answer together for you though!

Q: Is there a bung for a wideband?
A: Yes, there is on pre-welded bung on one of the headers to accommodate a wide-band

Q: Will they fit on the Zl1 without having to trim the belly pan under tray?
A: Yes

Q: Will they be available for a stock catback?
A: Yes

Q: Will they also come with your mid-pipes, like the ones on the corvette, to connect to the stock dual mode mufflers?
A: Eventually we will have the mid-pipe(just l like the corvette), but this first release is just for the headers...it seemed like most guys wanted to just add headers. Of course, the mid-pipe is still something we wanted to do and it is almost done.

Q: What size primaries are these available in?
A: 1-7/8 now, but 1-3/4 soon to follow

Q: How would these compare to other name brand headers in power and sound?
A: With the stock x-pipe and mufflers the volume should be rather comfortable, but with a noticeable aggressive tone during acceleration. Power wise, you should expect to see a significant increase in TQ and HP, but with a huge kick in the pants for the midrange. The Tri-Y is an amazing combo for these motors.

Oh man, these are gorgeous and those gains are impressive. Tempting to make a switch, I've been happy with my stainless works though.

So I subbed I need to see more on these. My memory is hazy as to the advantage to Tri-Y style headers.

I hope they are reasonable so later this year when I am looking for headers they are a legit option for me.

I'm all about the TQ... IIRC this design is good for TQ. Off to Google I go.
