haha, nah, super comps bring back memories of almost constant rattles, reduced turning radius, and daily retightening. it wasn't on an f-body, but just out of spite I'm never buying another super comp, EVER.
I went with Jet-Hots (essentially Super Comp's but with thicker flanges and a little better welds).
I dont think there is much difference between Pacesetters/Hooker Super Comps/and Jet Hots. I'd go with whatever is cheaper. At the time, I got in on a group buy on Jet Hots ($450, i think?). They all make emissions compatible headers, but they are going to relocate your cat pretty far back, which might fail a visual inspection.
can you be emissions legal with LT headers? or does it vary state to state?What else do you need when installing the headers other than the headers themselves, the time required to install them? I read something about poly motor mounts and a tune so the rear o2 wouldn't bring up the SES light. Do you need to buy a Y-pipe?
the rear O2 deal is only if you delete the cats. I don't think NJ will allow the use of LT's, since you move the cats. I'd look into your emissions laws. you can alwasy keep the stock manifolds and pipes, and swap them on for the emissions part. Some may say that is shady, but what is shady is not letting us run long tube headers on a street car!! I'm glad I don't have emissions testing!
Buffman is right, it won't be the same as getting them coated by a pro, but if money is really that tight, and you don't mind redoing it every year or so, go for it. me, I have mine procoated... now I just need a car to put them on!
