Headers just arrived at the house. Of course I'm at work so it will be this evening before I get to take a look. Resonator pipes that replace the front pipes before the resonator shipped the next day and will be here tommorow.
Sure wish i had some wheels for this damn car so i could take it to have the headers installed.:banghead:

?? Didn't you have the 6 spoke HRE's ??

Perhaps I'm confused. What's going on with your wheel situation

Shane,

It's great to hear they are starting to go out..:bouncy:
I still haven't been billed yet (just checked) so I guess mine are not on the way yet.
I can't wait, I am looking forward to getting them and doing the install and hoping she gets louder. If not maybe I will order the x-pipe..:worship:

Mine arrived yesterday, and they are kicka$$!!! Is anyone considering any coatings/treatments, as I have heard both pros and cons, thanks.

stainless shouldn't need it right?
watch for cables/hoses running close to them, though
(some guy at corvetteforum torched his new C6 when a clutch hose touched his headers)

I got mine yesterday. They came with 2 resonators, I don't think I need them because I have the B&B exhaust and X pipe..
I am thinking about wrapping the headers before the installation. It will keep the engine bay cooler, no wires or hoses can burn up if they accidentally hit, and it will help increase the scavenging effect. I don't see any downside to this.

resonators??

Supposedly the resonators replace the piping to the resonator at the slip joint.

I've got T-ball till 7:30 but I'll post some pics later unless Willsctsv wants to.

I have the Stainless Works headers and I sent them out to be coated inside and out by Jet Hot before installing. They look awesome (the finish is very close to the stock V wheel's finish) and they are cool to the touch in no time. I was having my oil changed and the tech brushed against them by accident while under the car, he was amazed that they didn't burn him and I had been driving for 40 minutes before pulling in. The coating cost me $300.

Has everyone that was on the group buy list been charged yet? Didn't know if they have all been sent out and forgot me and I have to call them again? Just don't want to be left out, and I can't wait to get them. :coolgleam

Got home all excited and walked up to the door to see the infamous note "must sign for package" :banghead: Guess I'll be hanging out at the house tommorow.

Bill, you want loud, get the x-pipe. I scared the b-jesus out of a lady when I blew past her, while getting on the interstate. Within one hundred yards of the "V" under full acceleration, I've seen birds fall out of the sky.:lildevil:

I haven't received my headers yet and of course have not been billed. Dennis said they were fabricating the headers and sending them out as they finished, so they should be arriving soon.

Headers just got here along with the resonators. You guys are going to be very happy with the quality of these headers. Billy did a great job on these.

StealthV (Rick) I hope your going to do a write up with pics on the installation. It looks like it will be a couple of weeks before I can have mine installed. It looks like the resonators are only for the guys who have the X-pipe (according to instructions) but probably could be used with the resonator version. The wide band bung also came with screws so they can be plugged. Will be waiting patiently for StealthV's instructions:worship:

Nice! My cc still hasn't been charged so maybe next week. Did any misc. hardware come with the headers such as gaskets for the heads, etc.?

My plan is to go all out the first go around - straight pipes feeding the x-pipe. :eek: :D

Came with all the hardware Rick. There was supposed to be a page in the installation instructions for the resonators, looks like that's the only thing I didn't get. Looks like they want you to reuse the manifold bolts. I'll probably order new ones. They came with paper gaskets for the headers, seems like the factory metal might have been a better choice. That's why I think I'll let you go first.;)

Stealth, New gaskets for the heads, new gaskets for the X pipe to the cats, and new bolts for the high flow cats. Nice instructions. I just can't figure out why the extra 2 resonators.

Just finished wrapping one of the headers, Man this shit is itchy!
