    Stainless Works will make us headers if we can get ten people on board.

    I deal with them a lot through the company I work for. If we can get 10 people on board, they would do it.

    Just so you know, LS2/LS6 CTS-Vs from 04-07 saw a 53 rwhp gain from headers and a tune alone. Being a supercharged application, I can see us having the same type of gains, or more. I can tell you first hand how restrictive our cat's are, especially with the bent after the converter.

    Not only that, but their 04-07 CTS-V Headers are only $890. They are very similar to ours, so I could guess we'd get the same or better deal (no official word on that, however.) I would pay $1000 right now for headers if I could.

    Stainless works is the leader in headers and mufflers on 09+ CTS-V's and many cars. Search the forums and you will see its pretty unanimous that they are the best company for the job.

    They are close, so if we could get the people on board, I wouldnt mind getting before and after dyno runs and IAT2 results to prove its worth the price of admission. We did it for the intakes, now lets do it for the headers.

    D3 claims only +20hp out of the XLR-V headers - (check their webpage). Remember the exhaust manifold on the LC3 is extrude honed from the factory -- and the factory parts don't look all that bad side by side with the D3 parts -- which makes it sounds like just the high flow cats were the benefit?

    D3 XLR-V header next to stock unit:


    That said, if you get some parts that make 30+ whp for under 1K...

    The V exhaust ports are extrude honed; the manifolds are not, however. They are exactly the same as STS manifolds with a different outlet flange. 53rwhp with a tune and headers is not realistic but 20-25 is.

    I would buy a set that fits properly and does not burn up other things in the engine compartment. I would want ceramic coating inside and out (I can have it done on my own).

    Will this require a new catback exhaust to be installed? Won't affect my decision either way, since if it is necessary, I would up grade to a larger pipe and throatier mufflers.

    My son - a mechanic - is really pushing me towards a set of headers. All comes down to cost. Any hint as to what we would be paying??

    If we can get a few more SERIOUS people onboard, I can ask stainless works what they were thinking.
