Alright guys what is the best Long Tube header for the 6.0 out there? I searched and only came up with some stuff on Pacesetters and I would like to explore my other options. I am lookg for something that will require minimal exhaust work to be done, as I live 40+ miles from an exhaust shop.

Also, just so you know, my plan is long tube headers with my current exhaust, a nelson tune and a CAI or just a new filter, whatever is best.

Thoughts? Discussion?

Link? Price?

Will the Thorleys for the 4.8, 5.3 work for my 07 6.0? Also what modifications will have to be done to the exhaust to run em?

Thanks,
Dusty

price is about $1200 for headers alone.
Ok so that makes me lean towards the thorleys even more, but will the ones for a 5.3 work and what mods will I have to do to the exhaust?

are you running dual exhaust or a single inlet/outlet exhaust now? do you plan on keeping converters?
I am running the factory exhaust now with a new muffler due to it being 3.5"s from the factory. I have no problems getting rid of the cats because I plan to have it Nelson tuned shortly there after.

well, if you still have factory exhaust, you could cut off the converters. have allen tune out the rear 02 sensors, then you wont have to rewire them/relocate them into the new exhaust. after installing the headers, you can have the local exhaust shop cut part off of your factory crossover pipe (where it bolts to the factory manifolds) and add flanges to it so it will bolt up to the headers.

Thorley or Dynatech. I will not recommend Pacesetter.
why would you not recommend pacesetters? dynatech sucks ass the headers are $1000+ i think there like $1200 and i have heard of soo many guys on fourms where there headers are hitting the frame rails...by far NOT worth it for that:imo.

Paces are the biggest piles of flaming shit I have ever seen. Only reason people buy them is because they are cheap. Not ideal!! Now why do Dynas suck ass? They are stainless and will outlast your truck. And they wont rust!! Why does that suck? Cant say that about Pacesetter. Also, you are aware that Dynatech has released a new design header right?? Ask someone that has the new design if they have rubbing problems and they will tell you no. Paces are too big for an N/A 5.3. Period. The primary and collectors are too big. Now if I were to do headers all over again and I had alot of cash to spend. Stainlessworks would get my money.

pacesetters are by far the best bang for your buck as said by many people. and ceramic coating disapates heat:D.
Shitty coating that doesnt stay on the headers. I didnt want cheap shit. So I didnt buy cheap shit. I had Paces once and wont buy them again.
