Question Headers for 2012 LS

I have a 2012 Ls and was wondering if anyone had good suggestions on what headers I should buy ?

To my knowledge, no.

You can get cat-less down pipes. On the LFX the exhaust manifold was built integral into the head and is already a very high flowing design.

High flow cats and mufflers would be a better choice but it'd probably sound like a ricer humped a tractor and gave birth to an abomination. Most do and you can find them on Youboob for an example of what not to do.

I believe 2012 was the first year of the revised V6 when they went from the LLT to the LFX. If I am correct in this then you are SOL on headers as the exhaust connects right to a port out of the heads instead of like a traditional header.

You can get high flow cats which will increase power and sound volume, which may not be a bad way to go, but no headers for you. Sorry.

No need to feel silly, there's been plenty of worse questions asked before.
