2000 GT which long tube headers?

I am leaning toward installing some long tubes but not sure on which way to go because Ive heard about fitment issues with some of them. Any suggestions?

Pacesetters are the easiest fitting long tubes you can find a set of ceramic coated they call it armor coat on amazon for 375 on amazon. had 0 modifications to make for the install still was a long process though.

Just a side thought...if you are going to spend around a grand for a good set of headers then you might as well keep saving for a supercharger or turbo. Other than that BBK I hear are a good and low priced set too. Probably the lowest price set I would buy for long tubes, if I was to buy long tubes gain. You will spend just shy of 600 shipped from American Muscle for the ceramic coated BBK ones. Kooks and SLP are a very nice set just you will be spending a lot more money for them. Whatever you do just make sure you get the ones for a manual or an automatic transmission. Some companies make specific headers for our transmission. Little future information: if you have a manual transmission needing a clutch change later on, one of the long tubes (or both) will have to be removed to do it.

Easiest way to install them is to either remove the k member, or drop or hoist the engine from the car - if you have that capability. Be sure you do not want to go turbo before you do this. Those long tubes will be a waste of money down the road. Good luck in your project.

Thank you gentlemen, not sure if Im looking for that much more power or that much more money spent going the turbo or sc route seeing as its just a weekend car that sees no racing at all. I may even just put some good shortys on it to keep the lowered stance, anything beats those crap stock manifolds and as for the clutch... its like all my mods under a year old so no issue there. Tnx again!!

I Like the bbk headers. Shorty and long tubes I've had both on my car and they fit great.
