OK, I dunno if they actually suck, but I do know they don't fit stock manifolds. I found this thread just now.

Sigh. So either I'm running cats or I'm buying some JBA headers. :mad:

Another week without the GTO...

JBA shorties fit the stock mids perfectly, FWIW, you don't even need to loosen the mids. They neatly pop on. Unless you're after that last 2 rwhp or want LTs you can keep the stock mids.

Yeah, I guess I hadn't thought about that option; I can take my stock mids and get the cats/resonators removed. Although, at that point, I might as well just go buy some piping and get the damned mids reconstructed from scratch.

...And there goes a hundred dollars worth of header wrap down the drain.

Such is life, I guess.

Why wouldn't I just do the flared reducer thing that 2Cool described?

If JBA shorties fit JBA & stock mids, and JBA shorties fit JBA mids ... then the mistake you are making, is to try and use the stock manifolds. I was just trying to be helpful.
Wango - thanks for the assist. I need the stock manifolds, though - STS install.
