Default Header question

I read threads for a couple hours and gave up finding an answer to a question I have.

I am looking at a set of these Pfadt LT with catted X-pipes and need to know if they will hook up the the stock NPP rear section, or if I will need to do or buy something additional to keep the stock NPP. (not going to buy from here but I am looking at the street version that this link references) Any comments would be welcome.

First off your link takes you to a C6 header .....
Their C7 header along with their catted XPipe should bolt right up to your mufflers

Sorry I don't have an answer to your question but I would recommend going with American Racing Headers or Kooks as opposed to Pfadt.

What's the reason to avoid the Pfadt headers?

Yes they will bolt up.

I have the race system in stock, depending on exactly which system you want I may have it.

Thanks. I would need catted, but I am in no hurry, just trying to get a bit more info about the options before I buy.

Not sure why it was stated to avoid the Pfadt headers, but they offer one of the few tri-y header options for our cars.

Yeah, that's why I was interested in them. A place had them for $750 off for black friday which is why I was looking at them, but I just found out that Texas Speed is on;y a few miles away from me so I am going to check their product out instead. Good: no shipping hazards, supporting local businesses, great price compared to the competition Bad: i get to pay sales tax.

Sorry for the confusion.

I wasn't telling you to avoid the Pfadt headers, just wanted to make sure you considered other options that were out there and did your research before spending a couple thousand dollars. To be honest I do not have any personal experience with Pfadt other than through a friend, but I do have experience with ARH and Kooks. If you are looking to squeeze the most power out of your LT1 then ARH or Kooks would be my choice. Either way I am sure you will be satisfied.

Thanks for the clarification. I emailed TSP monday and haven't heard back from them yet. Must be busy there. I may stop by tomorrow as I found out I have the day off.

Yes, unless noted most header system's included X-pipe will bolt to the stock axleback.
