Ebay headers, a couple people on here run off brand headers, these are stainless and cheap.

before people come in here and tell you to search i say try em out. they are 250 give or take a few bucks after shipping and are stainless. people will swear by ARH or KOOKS, but those are 1k. so take your pick. they may not fit perfect but your paying 1/4 the cost. your decision.
by the way people have ebay headers here so your not the only one.

they look alright but my question is are they slip fit collectors or somthing because they dont have the flange and the triangle bracket to bolt them to the y pipe or cats, id say spend a little extra money and get somthing with a y pipe here is the headers i got and there pretty cheap,

They're straight pipe collectors just like pacestters and maybe some others.
Pacesetters matching Y pipe has the swage (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=define%3A+swage&btnG=Search) on the ends for the slip fit.
As far as finding a Y for a LT's that don't come with them....I used an Edelbrock. IIRC it was $70 after my coupon, (it comes with all kinds of stuff too. It had two O2 bungs not welded on, 5 ss t-bolt clamps, a slip fit adapter to attach to stock or use full 3")
These are made to slip fit over 3 1/2" headers. I used them on pacesetters and all I had to do was cut the swage ends off. The pass side fit right up, and I attached it with a SS band clamp (http://static.summitracing.com/global/images/prod/large/wlk-33278.jpg). The drivers side needed a slight S bend in it but strange enough this Y comes with a removeable section there.
Now I have two of the same cars, both with pacesetter headers, one with the flat top pacesetter ORY and one with the full 3" Edelbrock. Same ride height on both cars and the edelbrock has more clearance, doesn't bang, can be removed easier.
