Default Mac mid length question.

I picked up a set of mac mid length headers in a trade. I was wondering if I can bolt these up to the stock y pipe, or do I need to purchase the matching y pipe? The car sits very low, so I probably wouldn't be able to run an aftermarket y pipe.

btw, the car is a 2002 z28, no performance mods done.

Thanks

I tried searching for this info, but I can't find anything between all the classified ads

I'm not interested in buying different headers, this car is a 130,000 mile daily beater. The headers are sitting here, I'll put them on if they bolt to the stock y.

They will not bolt to the stock y-pipe without modification. They are longer than shortys. So they do require a mac y-pipe

Macs are fine, LT's will make a little more midrange but upper rpms will be very similar. my car ran 11.4 @ 124 with macs, shitty heads, and a small cam before i went turbo

Complete nonsense with regard to the mid-lengths not making power. I had them on my 99 formula and went from 315 RHWP to around 338 RWHP with Mac Mids, offroad mid-pipe. The 99 had a lid, borla catback, ASP pulley prior to macs going on.
