So I've wanted new headers for a while but with rent and other bills haven't been able to pull the trigger, Even though I've been researching them fora while. Well, I went out tonight and got a little tipsy, came some and said F*** it and bought these, the ones I've been pondering over for awhile. What do you think? Good purchase? They seem to be a good value for a guy like me on a budget.

No... From what I've read I think it's best to just buy vette sensors, which I'll pry do today. I know I saw a part number in a thread somewhere.

ive done worse.i got drunk and bought $1000 nitrous kit. realized i bought the wrong one, tried to exchange it and lost $250 worth of restock fee. so id say its a great purchase. i have the same setup and it fit like a glove easy install. youll be happy with it.

Nice. I suggest you get drunk more often and pretty soon you'll be dipping in the 11's.... then 10's......who knows:D

I'll get a sound clip after they're installed, even though the new catback won't be bought for a couple weeks. They said the headers would get shipped out today. Hoping they get in by Saturday so I can put them on over the holiday weekend. Got them from Texas Speed.

I just put pacesetters on 2 weeks ago. im happy with the fitment and the look. still runnin the stock catback tho....way too quiet for me still. BTW i got the vette O2s but theyre like 80 bucks each and the extensions are 40 for 2...i was kicking myself for not buying the extensions.

I spend $130 on a 21" widescreen monitor while shitfaced. My old CRT screen had been getting kind of fuzzy, and I remember getting angry because I couldn't read the text on it that night. I'm guessing that it was fuzzier than usual due to the empty bottle of 10 cane rum I found the next day.

The funny thing was that I had been kicking around just buying a new computer for a while, my desktop was only 7 years old. Desktop crapped out about 1 month later and I bought a laptop.:bang:

I happen to have some O2 extensions laying around here somewhere, were only on the car for about a month before i decided to go ahead and buy the Vette O2 sensors. I wanted to get new sensors on there too.

Now if i can find them, is the question lol

The worked great. Slipped right into palce without any modification. It was harder to get the stock manifolds off than to get the new ones on.

Oh I can tell for now anyway. My catback kit came with the wrong muffler. Of course, I didn't notice this until I cut my stock exhaust off. :bang:
