    50 extra horses (under the curve) on the ZL1 LSA, W/O a tune...

    Maybe they'll make them with enough interest?

    Well, peak numbers were +30HP, +30TQ give or take.

    Looks like @ 5250 RPM - where they're getting that "peak" difference - looks like it might be overstated a bit? Nonetheless, the headers for sure but I'm not convinced on the 50HP gains until Joe Q gets a set and dynos before/after to verify. And I think Pfadt is a good company... but advertising can be a real bitch sometimes.

    Short answer... I'd be interested - in a few more years.

    It's well documented the tri-y's make the most power. It's just no one makes them for the V yet...

    I would consider it. But, can you add these headers without supporting mod's?

    I would be interested
    But they don't make them for our cars so it looks like Kooks instead

    I'm interested and have called them twice. They said possibly this fall they may have something. After I talked to them I called RPM Motors in Santa Clarita and asked if I should wait for the product. I also asked if they had done any dyno testing on a Corvette with those headers. They said there has been interest from the Covette guys and they have tried to order 2 sets, but can't get anything delivered. They also had trouble getting some of the suspension parts too. I'll give it a little more time.
