Texas Speed & Performance 2 inch headers

While I was researching which headers to buy, I didn't come across much info on these. Just random posts about how I would lose low end power or whatever cause 2.0 primaries are overkill. I'll leave that debate up to the pros. I'm just hear to provide my personal experience. Take it for what its worth.

If you look at their website, they warn you that the 2.0 headers may have fitment issues. Well, I personally have never installed a set of headers on a car without fitment issues. So that didn't scare me. The other thing that you will notice online, is that the 1 7/8 headers are the same exact price as the 2.0, which are already priced waaaay below others. If TSP wasn't so well known I might have been concerned with "getting what you pay for". But these headers are damn good. I just installed a set of Kooks on my ls6 Silverado, and I was really happy with them, but after seeing the tsp's I feel like I wasted money.

I just wanted people to know, that I installed these 2 inch headers in my driveway, without a lift, and I had ZERO fitment issues. I removed the steering shaft so I didnt have to jack the car up higher, but when I reconnected it, to my surprise, it cleared the fatty headers no problem. No denting or dimpling, no grinding the frame, no pulling the starter. Easy as pie. Just changed my plugs and wires and zero problems there.

Had a 3 inch exhaust with x pipe and magnaflows welded up right after. Weeeeee the power gain is nice! It pulls real good up top!

Don't be scared of the 2 inchers!

The only complaint I have with these TSP headers are the slip fit connections. Slip fits always leak for me. But I had my exhaust guy weld up some nice three bolt flanges.

The "connection pipe" from the header to the stock exhaust comes with these headers. It's made to look like a cat I suppose. I only used them to drive to the exhaust shop, then they were removed.

Just the 3 inch exhaust. Maybe a tweak here and there with HPT.
