Just installed a set of O B X. l/t headers (cat less) and the whole car now shakes... Is this normal? I've had cars in the past with headers but just shorties so I don't know if this is the norm for L/T's. Sounds great and runs like a scolded dog.

I've looked at the comparison and Kooks to O B X. there isn't much difference 'cept for the price and I can't see dropping a grand into headers to get just about the same result (12-15 hp). I've had O B X. before on another vehicle with good results and the build quality isn't bad.
I think I may be hitting the floor board with one of the flanges, but when started the whole car shakes like a stock car, but again, the throttle response is great and it runs great. Didn't know if this was a characteristic of L/T's or what...
The issue isn't about price. It's about giving money to a Chinese company who steals intellectual property from American companies.
Just an FYI, but we established a rule on here awhile ago that we will NOT tolerate the discussion of said company as these threads ALWAYS turn into complete shitstorms. The thread will get locked if it does.
On subject, get under your car and look for anything hitting the floorboards or frame rails. I had the same issue when installing SLP's on my father's 04. The driver-side mid pipe was found to be resting on the frame rail. Loosened everything up, moved it away, re-tightened everything, and was good to go. Good luck.
But because there's enough posts in here by illiterate shitbags that think LS1GTO.com is a mothersmurfing text message to their homies. If you can't be bothered to communicate like you have at least some sort of brain in your skull, I can't be bothered to keep your smurfing thread open.
