Yepper, I'd originally bought the JBA shorty and HF cats when the car was new as I was undecided originally the directions of things. With other bolt-ons installed I decided to go ahead with a tune. Shortly after I pulled the HF cats, installed off road mids and retuned picking up a few more HP. In the Fall I decided to go LTs and do a cam upgrade, this brings us to where we are today. I want to pull a few more HP & Tq out of the LS3 and compliment the new cam goes in next week.

I installed Pfadt tri y headers myself. In a two car garage on jack stands. They went in perfect. No problems at all. Brought in to east coast superchargers and had a cam installed ( big blower cam ) when I went to go get the car. I pulled up to hear the last dyno pull. WOW. Sounded awesome!!!! Doug said to me that I had a good running camaro. They usually get on average 465 rwhp. Mine with pfadt tri y headers got 480 rwhp. Has to be the headers!!!

In the garage & 2 jack stands simple simple! I think it took longer to pull the JBA set than it took to slip the Pfadts up in and put everything back together lol.
Welcome to the Tri-Y club, man. It's cool that you were able to get a set!

I love mine. They went in like butter and fit perfect. I have the set up with High Flow cats. With the Pfadts, Magnaflow resonated X-pipe, ADM Race intake with scoop, and a Vmax ported TB it all Dyno tuned to 432HP/422TQ...

Can't go wrong with them...

I really like mine. Great fit and finish.

Wasn't able to get a before dyno but after, with CAI and tune, it put down 403hp and 395tq. That was around 2k miles on the clock.

Yep, they upgraded them to 1 7/8" primaries, still a 2 1/2" collector and they are coated mild steel, not stainless unless that changed also.

If I had not been able to get my Pfadts last year I was going to go with Stepped Headers. I can't remember if it is Kooks or ARH that makes them. Also whatever you do go with the High Flow Catted version you will give up very little power but you won't have to deal with the stench that comes with being cat free.

If you don't go with one of the high end Brands/Models of headers that are USA made, go with either the Stainless Power or TSP headers. They will be SS and basically just a good but made overseas...

My headers are Kook's stepped from Maryland Speed. Catless doesn't stink on corn and FI will kill most any cat fairly quickly.
