Default What headers fit?

Hey guys im new up here. But i got a 2002 SSEI MPS pulley cold air t stat 3 inch cat back exhaust plugs wires. Im wondering what headers will fit in the H bodies. ZZP told me they think the pacesetters are the only ones that will fit. Any help would be great thanks.

We have people running TOGS, SLP'* and Pacesetters... Although slight modification might be needed. Just make sure you get the w-body trans tube. FYI, my Pacesetters were direct bolt in.

Do NOT use the paper gaskets that come with the Pacesetters.

There maybe an O2 clearance issue with some headers.
With my Togs I had to 'tweak' the tunnel sheet metal at bit for it to clear. No problems since and that was 5 years ago

have fun with those pacesetters......... i had a set and i sold them after i went turbo. but theres a good chance you'll have a leak either at the collector or the flange on the bottom of the collector after install. after tweaking them a couple of times you should be able to eliminate any leaks. other than that they are a decent product for the price, and they do their job, they fight kr just like the other headers.

I strongly recommend SLP headers. I have seen 2 sets in person (Brian'* (Gonneville'*), and my friend Frank'* on his '00 GTP), and they are VERY nice. Excellent welds, nice gauge steel, overall a great product. They are definitely worth the extra cost, IMO.

All of them fit and most of them need simple trimming and tweaking of things in the engine bay to clear heat shields and such. I have the TOGs and I love them I had to fix the angle at which the crossover dumps into the rear header but aside from that I like the heavier gauge steel on them which cuts down on a lot of the ticking you get from the SLPs.

Here is a link to my quick explanation of the fix for the TOGs
