Pypes headers


I'm looking at switching out my current headers for something different and in better condition. Mine have several years of wear on them now and are showing it. Anyone have any experience with the shorty headers by Pypes? Any info in regard to installation, fitment, issues, likes, dislikes, performance would be greatly appreciated! Anyone have any opinions on the Pypes brand in general? Thanks

Flowtech huh? I guess I've never looked into that brand. When you say easy to put on, what did that entail? I know headers are a bitch in general, but I'm mostly concerned about the rubbing issue and the fitment to my midpipe. I'm not going to go with BBK again, so they are out. I was just trying to keep everything from AmericanMuscle. Free shipping is huge!

yeah its helpful. Thanks. I'm finding them for about $180 though from Summitt to Jegs. How are they performance wise? I've read that they are prone to leaks and what not. Any issue with that for you?

They are prone to leaks. They have slip joints that leak almost instantly and the flanges are too big on some heads and don't fit well. If you grind the flanges to fit and weld up the slip joints they're not a bad deal though. The collector is kinda crappy and could use some clean up too where the primaries are welded in, but a die grinder and a straight metal carbide tip can do that pretty well. Nice thing about them is that they have a 3" collector with a 3 bolt flange. I would buy them over any BBK junk anyday as long as you put a little time into them to fix them up a bit.

you are correct on the old stuff, but that was a hit and miss, there new line has a better fit to many heads, i have had mine on for over a year "stock 5.0" and keep them with the build,the only thing i did was had them glass bedded and hit them with high temp header paint.The trick is to order a second set of gaskets, or get the thick costly ones they offer. personaly i used the set that came with them and a same,second set at the same time NO PROBLEMS,FYI i also have them on my 2001 tahoe, and they are the old series never a issue over 3yrs old.

Mine are from last summer. They're the summit headers, which are the same exact thing, both are made at the same place. I would grind the flanges down before I doubled up on gaskets or used a thick one. It's just the tops over each primary tube that hit on my TF heads, but it wasn't a big deal to to. Might also be different on the SN cars, but I'm sure you're still going to have to do some work to them.
