Is there any way I can get headers?!?!

I have a 2013 LFX, can I get headers? I am confused on why I can't. Is there a reason for it? Thanks in advance!

Yeah but it is kind of an alternative to high flows if you get long tube headers, for a deaper exhaust note and like 20 horses.

I guess so. But it would be a beast if it supported headers also.

Not so much. Just so you can say "Headers!" doesn't make it a beast.

I like the free 'headers' I got. Made the next mods that much closer.

Haha thanks. I didn't think anyone would notice. If I could do it all again it would definitely be a white Camaro with a custom stripe such as the pic.

If you feel the need that you need to spend money and want headers get the HFC's or go with a cat back system.

I am glad it took me an extra 2 years to talk myself into to spending my money and buying the V6. By waiting and getting the LFX versus the first LLT I got an extra 19 HP,

Dean.

You can still do high flow cats, and gain another 10 - 15 horse that way....so even though the LFX has less mods available for it versus the LLT, it really seems to have tad bit more potential than the LLT does due to more tuning options and the fact that it starts off being a tad stronger.

The one thing you'll never get is the growl that the LLT can get with full length headers.

This. There's no point to having headers. Get some high flow cats and go FI.
