Street trends or Clear image automotive both have websites and both carry a good array of headers and other stuff. They can both help you with info. personally from ALL my experience with B-bodies, headers are a piece of crap for LT-1 applications.

The Clear Image Tri-Ys are pretty nice. Just don't pay for the coating. Get it done locally.

You already have obd1- no upgrade to be made.

On Board Diagnostics (obd)
obd1= pre '96
obd2= '96 and up

The above is pretty universal regardless of make and model. I suppose there could be a few older non-GM vehicles that left the factory with obd2, but all '96 or newer vehicles will be obd2.

Keith- yes, you have obd2

Pop'n fresh- you have obd1

Good luck finding o2 sims from a large retailer, laws have changed and they're not available. If you search hard enough, you can find them though. As I said, it would be easier to just get them programmed out of the pcm. You won't get through CA smog with either one though.

You're tuner can program out the rears. You just change the car's programming so that it's not looking for them.

I'm not sure what your question is. What I meant by tuner is somebody who will do a new program for your PCM. You can get a program yourself, such as Tunercat or LT1edit, that will allow you to do your own programming, but I don't know how to do it and I can tell from your questions you don't either. I don't know if there are any handheld tuners, like the predator or diablosport, that are available for our cars or, if there are, whether they'd have this feature. Your best bet is to get in touch with a tuner (i.e., programmer), like pcm4less.com or one of the others, and talk with them about what you need. As mentioned, it's hard as hell to find 02 sims these days because distributers have stopped selling them.

Keith,

We also carry a complete line of headers and parts as well. Long tubes and Tri-Y's are in stock and are available with and without cats.
