Thanks Guys

Anything that has a combination of stainless steel and longtube. Shorties are a waste of money as far as performance goes. And if it's not stainless, it will rot out in 2 years.

Stay away from SLP, the headers themselves are fantastic, but you lose a ton of ground clearance.

Make sure the long tubes you buy have the provisions for the EGR.

And you will most likely need to buy some high flow catalytic converters to pass smog. Don't quote me one it, I'm in MI and we don't have hippie car laws.

And the LS1 is a 346, not 350

Stainless works have good fit, also I've seen few pacesetters and fit and finish was good

Advice from out of state will not be helpful. here is a link to the CARB approved aftermarket stuff. The headers must have CARB stamp or they will not pass smog. Good luck.

BTW, the Jerry Brown originated CARB has outlived its usefulness and needs to be done away with. It is just an enforecment arm for the environazis in this day and age.

Like stated look for carb , but keep in mind there are fake converters that are hollow so for max power and carb look.
