PFadt Tri-Y headers Official Release! + 4th a of July Sale!

We will ship any order until Monday the 7th for free in the lower 48!

We are going to start shipping out this week! A big thanks to everyone who placed a pre-order - You'll get the first sets going out!



The videos don't even come close to doing the sound justice (even though they still sound great in the video)...in person these things sound absolutely amazing! All of the sound clips I've posted are through the factory exhaust from the header back.

Also, our headers have been designed with the new steering knuckle in mind! Most other headers have to be dimpled around the steering knuckle on newer 5th gens...ours will fit perfect in any car, the first time! We put our hearts and souls into these headers, and the the perfect fit the first time is just the starting point....the power comes next


You absolutely cannot beat the TQ and HP the Tri-Y design will produce in your LS3. Tri-Y's are incredibly difficult to make properly (tuning the lengths is very difficult, especially when packaging them in the Camaro), but when done right, they will rip you back in your seat like you wouldn't believe....but enough of that....Lets finally get a good look at these things!























To make things even better:



We absolutely didn't take a single shortcut when designing and manufacturing these headers. We put our best foot forward, and the end result was a header that should realistically sell for 1850 or so dollars according to the industry standard for margins.

In all honesty though, at the end of the day, we just decided to just scrap the margins and deliver a world class product to the market at an amazing price. Ultimately, we believe that it will help the company in the long-run and that it will also start bringing attention back to what "Made in the USA" is all about. We've gotten really tired of seeing people trading quality for a few dollars and "modding" their car with cheaply made goods. The 5th gen Camaro is an amazing car and the parts we put on it should be likewise.


Pricing:
1450050 Pfadt Camaro Tri-Y Headers w/ Cats
Retail $1429

1450051 Pfadt Camaro Tri-Y Headers w/o Cats
Retail $1299

Are the cats on this set up like the Solo or Kooks Green cats that don't require a tune?

You can run these without a tune! Of course, there is always more power with a tune...Either way, they will produce results you can feel

We put hundreds of miles on our our cars, and not a single CEL! With a high quality cat, its entirely possible to get these results. Keep in mind, the parameters that the computer is looking for to test cat functionality is very specific, and if for some reason you pop outside of that range, it can throw a cat inefficiency code. That doesn't mean that the cat isn't working, in fact our cats perform their function as well as the OEM cats, but the method the ECU uses to test the cats fucntionality is very limited in its abilities and tuned to the OEM cat. Even if the cat is working perfect, the test on the ecu isn't calibrated for the high performance and flow of aftermarket cats. We've done our absolute best to mitigate this and avoid a CEL popping up.

Wait to you guys install a set of these...so many things went into the design...no moving of the oil-cooler lines, no moving of the engine, no dimpling...just take your old stuff out, and put the new stuff in.

Oh and what did that Black SS end up adding HP/TQ wise after the header install?

I'm waiting for the shop that did the test to email the dyno to me...I should have it any day. I can't remember the exact numbers, but it did really good. I think we had it tested with:

1. Intake and a tune
2. Headers and no tune
3. Headers and a tune
4. Headers, intake, tune

The 4th test produced some BIG numbers

Looking forward to those numbers. Right now I'm running an ADM Race Intake and want a set of headers. I'd like to stay like this until I do ported heads and a cam early next year.

It'd be great to only have to get it tuned once, that will save me some dollars.

I understand these are 1 7/8" - 2" primary tubes. Did I read somewhere that PFADT was going to also produce a 1 3/4" -2" tri Y header like the corvette tri Y's? If you will be coming out with a 1 3/4" tri Y header for the camaro, which would be better for a simple bolt on car with CAI and future cam?

These things look great! Is that a spare bung for running wideband sensors?

I nearly overlooked the fact that these are Tri-Y design. Anyone want to but my golf cart? I need these headers!

So if they don't give a CEL, for those who would prefer to keep their warranty, is the car going to run too lean when you really give it some gas if you don't tune it?

I'm going to get mine tuned, but i'm just curious. Can't wait to get some!
