This is a pic just to show you what they look like.
As you can see, it includes the down pipe.
They are pretty affordable too.Less then $500.00 for the set.
They also make a cat-back exhaust system for the GP'* too.
I'll get prices for ya.
- also asked them if they still have the test fit set because I am negotiating to have them send them to PDX so Jim could try them on the grand-Zilla mean machine.

Here'* the Pic...

545.00 retail painted , 765 retail coated , catback retail 615.00

The other "of course" is... i can get club prices. I'll find out how much.
Price is a bit high, but it'* another option.

I pointed out the high price. It will likely come down in time. Just pointing out another possible option.

There'* a couple pieces there you don't need, so that might make it a wash.

Yep saw these on CGP. I'm curious as to how long they last. (rust etc.) It seems with Pacesetter it'* either a hit or miss.

I also saw them on CGP too... It'* different how they have their own downpipes for the front and back banks compared to all the other headers that dump the front bank into the rear header. I wonder how much that will change the sound of a FWD 3800 and make it sound more like a RWD 3800?

Bah, that'* old news!

Echo and I have both met the guy who works at Pacesetter, and we've heard the exhaust on a couple GPs in the local club. Chances are Bob could tell you a lot more about it than I could. Good news is that Bob and I are both in the area to be test mules if they want to do Bonnie headers.
