What brand are they? I know pacesetter makes a nice one, or buy a magnaflow y pipe that cost like 25 bucks and have the muffler shop fab up the pipes going from the collectors to the y, shouldnt cost too much.

Good luck!!!!

You got me interested. I have been considering doing this to my 2004 when I have the exhaust gaskets and bolts replaced due to what I believe is a slight exhaust leak. Are you working the cats back in there or are you in an area where you can get by without them? Interested to know how much the install runs you if you don't mind sharing and also what they run into (how many manifold bolts they break off, lol). Oh and of course your before and after thoughts. Thanks for sharing!!

Im a farmer lol, we have a huge shop and planning on doing the full install myself. My town has 126 people so I could probably get by without cats but I think I might try to work em back in. Although its crossed my mind to clean them out before I reinstall everything.

Ill post back on how the removal and install works out, with lt headers it should be fairly easy to line up but ill take plenty of pics

Cool, didn't realize you were doing them yourself. Yeah, I wouldn't think it would be too bad. The manifolds are not that hard to get to after you remove the fender liners. The exhaust manifold bolts on these trucks are known to rust and break all by themselves, let alone when you are trying to remove them. Just something to keep in mind. Hope it goes well for ya!

I paid a shop to do this all for me, though I had them install a full custom exhaust after the headers too. I believe the header install part of it was somewhere between $400-600. I know they had to drill out 3 (maybe 4) of the manifold bolts. Other than that I think that was the only problem they had while doing that part of the install.

Overall I've loved the way the truck runs and feels with the LT's and the exhaust I had done.
