There is actually another guy on here who used those headers. He said he had to so some grinding and test fitting. He also had to get his couplers on his stock downpipes widened to fit these headers because they are too big. Hopefully he will chime in here.
Spend a little extra for these http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-G9045/?rtype=10
I bought them and they literally bolt right in, with no issues at all. They are auctually pacesetter shorty headers. The same ones they sell for $233 bucks. Also make sure to spend the money on a set of aluminum gaskets. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/MRG-5949/ TRUST ME ON THIS!!!

And was the performance gain worth the swap? I have used pacesetter longtubes on a 96 trans am and they are a good header but with a shorty is there a good advantage?

I couldn't honestly tell you, mainly for the fact I did a full exhaust after the headers, cold air intake, and programer... all in the same day lol. But I did notice quite a difference with everything. And there is for sure a noticeable sound difference. It feels like there is quicker throttle response.

Headers are always worth the mod, even with stock exhaust it will help the engine breath. Generally you can expect better lower end response with a slight increase in overall horsepower. I have ran headers on many of my cars and they have always helped. Heed the advice of MoparGuy86, get good gaskets!! Don't skimp on them or you will be replacing them soon. I have used exhaust cement on Pontiacs to make sure of a good seal against the head.
