In keeping with this Forum's policy, we provide this link here to special pricing, free shipping and free bonus items on new headers that will be out by month end for LS6 motors for '01 cars.


Please email with any questions you have.

Cheater...these aren't B and B units. The B and B's were short tubes I believe, is that right?

David and FRC Tom....these should be in the 20 rwhp range. They are making about 23 on the LS1, pre '01. DRM long tubes made around 20 on a Z06 and these should be no different. We will get some real world data when they are produced for the Z06 and LS1 for '01 in a few weeks.

There is a difference, Ric, on sizing...I base this on dyno results I have seen on the LS1 with the TTS product and ones I have seen on the DRM's on the Z06 on this Forum and the CorvetteForum.com. I also base it on what Steve Cole has told me during our conversations on his expectations during design and testing. I did mention we would get some test results back as soon as possible.


Take care,

RG

Thanks for the reply RG. I just think it would be of MUCH more help to ZO6 members to have the direct comparison before possibly misleading. I am hopeing the ZO6 Forum is full of helpfull advice and not just sales pich Ric

Hi, RG. The Cole headers are good looking, I am still very happy with the other's I got for you, we just had them off to do some porting between the headers and the heads, the finish still looks brand new. Nice to see you over here.

Let me be a bit more clear.In general a 1 5/8 header will tend to make a bit more power low in the RPM range and fall off at higher RPM and the opisite for the 1 7/8 so with a ZO6 I would lean in the direction of the 1 7/8 with my style of driveing. I have been power shifting for 35+ years so the RPM's do not drope on my shifts as much as a less exp. driver. So maybe one would be better for me than someone else,maybe not the point being dyno numbers are nice to compare to other dyno numbers but may not be directly comparable to real world performance. It is so much more complicated than most would expect. (I havent had personal exp. with the ls6 yet) It will take some extra from a vender to provide this type of imfo but I belive the person who has this type of imformation and is willing to share it will be more sucessfull.Rightfully so.

Ric, I have 1 3/4" TPIS headers on my LS1 and all I heard that I would lose low end power, but if anything I gain low end power after the install. The LS engines like higher RPM's better than the old C4's, I think this is one reason the larger tubes help the C5's.

Bill,

Shoot me an email at [email protected] and I can brief you on the install.

The HP numbers are from a stock car.

Talked to TTS today and they are getting the final fit adjustments on the Z06 as we speak.

RG... the other concern, is that the LS-1 F-body header by TTS is 1 3/4 ... I too am skeptical about a 1 5/8" header for cars making upwards of 400 HP! Tell Steve to make bigger primarys... it will only yield more HP throughout the entire Band!
Period.
