Pfadt Tri Y headers - how do you like them?

Hey Guys, getting ready to install my Tri Y headers I got last fall before I put the car to sleep. For those of you running them how do you like them? What sort of gains did you get?

They are awful, you dont want them. I will take them off your hands for you.

In all seriousness they are a great set of headers that will give you great torque numbers. I wish I had a chance at a set. Enjoy man!

Love mine, great power even without atune. Getting mine tuned soon BC of some knock issues. Haven't been on a dyno yet so I don't know power #.

I have a set hanging on the garage wall waiting for me to install next week. I also bought mine early in the winter before their untimely demise. Once installed the car's going to New Era for a cam upgrade and I'm hoping to pull some pretty fair numbers with the final combination.

Everything I'd read before buying the headers was ultra positive, so no worries

Got em on our Stingray and they made a heck of a difference.....a shame that they are no longer available for the Camaros.

Yeah they closed up a while back. There's a few threads covering the craziness. I too was a bit surprised as I'd been off the forum for a couple months after buying the headers then logged in to see that mess right along with the Pedders pulling the plug on US operations.

Flew in from downrange yesterday and did the header swap in the afternoon/evening. I wasn't sure at the beginning how everything was going to work out but have to say that installing the Pfadts was easier than installing the JBA combo I originally had in installed last year.

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.

Did you have JBA HFCats or headers and cats?

I can assume why you changed them....but why did you make the change?
