TSP headers...

I have heard some good things about these headers and the price is great. I really don't know anything when it comes to headers and was wondering if someone could post a link to the right kit and maybe anything else I need to purchase in addition?? Thanks for any help.

I have TSP 1 7/8 304 stainless steel long tubes. LOVE them!!! Make sure you buy the O2 extentions. Cats or no cats is a personal choice. I decided to go with no cats bc I wanted it loud and loud is what I got! We don't have any emissions here so its not an issue. Some complain about the smell but I don't notice it unless your in a garage or standing directly behind it.

Yup , I have the 1 7/8" headers. I have cats and it sounds great at startup but softens up it has warmed up. My headers did touch my steering column rubber boot cover but nothing a little shaving couldn't help. Take a look at my build thread and make your own decision ........ http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=275478

Very happy with mine...1 7/8" with HF cats. Like Sapper12b mentioned...on the 2013's it just BARELY touches the steering column rubber boot cover but I haven't shaved it and absolutely no problems. Have them on the car for about 8 months now...really wakes up the exhaust note and with a tune--really adds HP!!

I have the 1 7/8's also. Absolutely Love them. I would go with hi flo cats. I was running catless and recently just put on the cats and it sounds much cleaner/ much less rasp.

Mine just came in Monday and will be going on tomorrow! I bought the 1 7/8" with catless connections and full 3" kit up to the axle.

Here is a link to the kit I purchased. It comes with gaskets and O2 extensions.

i have a few questions i plan on buying these soon..

are the o2 sensor extensions necessary if you plan on running with no cats?? what are they for?

do their kits come with high flow cats if i plan on going that route?

is there any steering column grind on a 2012?

how is the ground clearance? do they hang lower than competitor's headers?

where i live they just hook the ECU up to check for any codes. anyone know if they do an emissions test in pennsylvania?

1. Yes you need the O2 extensions even if you go catless. You still use 2 of the 4 OEM O2 sensors.

2. You will have to by the cats seperate.

3. Seems every car is different. I had zero issues on my 2011 but some have.

4. They do not hang any lower at all, perfect fit.

5. Don't know that either. Look up your laws. Here in Indiana they do no emission testing which is why I went catless.

There isn't any steering column grind...Mine is a 2013 and has a rubber boot around the steering joint. My buddy's 2010 doesn't have that boot...so assume GM only put on 2013+ models.

Here is the same setup with the stock mufflers back on

The fit was perfect(after I realized that I had the X pipe on upside down) and the headers don't interfere with the steering shaft.
