PfadtHeaders.jpg


Header Details:
- TRI-Y Design, 4-2-1 tube merging
- Makes much more torque under the curve, while still increasing top end HP
- 1.75/2" tube diameter
- CNC flanges with OEM locating features
- Fully HAND-TIG welded
- T-304 16 Gauge Stainless Steel
- Fully Brushed Finish
- V-Band Clamp connections
- Equal length long tubes
- 1-piece X-Pipe available w/ and w/o Cats
- Full 3" collector and X-pipe
- Comes with bullet-nosed flange bolts for installation
- Available with 2 or 4 O2 Sensor extenders
- Available with Cometic Multi-Layer Steel gasket upgrades
- Made in Salt Lake City, Utah


Here is what people are saying about these headers as a result of our pre-production evaluation program:


"Right outta the box power was great, retune even better"


"Ground clearance wasnt affected everything tucks up nice and tight underneath but still plenty of clearance around everything so no ratlles or melted wires etc."


"Right outta the box they look amazing. The brushed finish is beautiful. The beveled flanges are awesome as no more bloody knuckles. The v-bands are so easy to use, the 1 peice x-pipe made installation fast and simple. I did the install by myself no one around to hold anything up for me still was a cake walk."


"The headers just slid right into place no removing the starter or anything silly like some other brands. I'm very happy to say we will certainly be carrying these headers as soon as they hit the market."


"I was very impressed with the design and quality of the proto-type pieces. The production pieces are even nicer."


"These headers are beautiful!! Like all of Pfadts products the quality is 2nd to none!!"


"very happy with the results.. made 424hp and 434 tq
 
Manny, I have been watching these since their prototype stage. What's the price oiint on these compared to LG or ARH? I really like Pfadt products, more so since the coilovers that I got from you. I dealt with Jarrett from their customer service and he was awesome. Kind of time the "Manny" of Pfadt.;)

Are my LGs obsolete now Manny?
[mob][/mob]

Not at all , we will still sell the LG line . The Pfadt Racing are something new , and we wanted to be the first on the block to give them a try .
 
Back in the early days, Tri Y headers were the thing to have. Then the 4 into 1 became all the rage even though it seemed to be known at the time that the Tri Y design was better for street use. Between advertising and everyone wanting their engine compartment to look like Mr. Racecars engine compartment, the Tri Y style pretty well faded away. It's sort of like the cross leaf archaic, antiquated cross leaf buggy springs. Guess what, they too came back and are under our Corvettes and these cars handle with the best. It's not that there is anything wrong with the new ideas and products out there. It's just that some simple old ideas are best kept around. One nice thing about Chassis dynos, you can actually see the gains or losses. No room for BS. :)
 
Good morning Keith,

Manny told me on Saturday that he was going to install the Pfadt instead of the LG's in the Z06 so I am most excited to see what this brings. I'm not sure how feasible it is to dyno the car mod by mod, start with stock, then after SC, after Pfadt and after methanol injection and then finally after the tune or if it will be a simple before and after dyno test.

It would be sort of interesting to see it component by component but then again the permuations and combintions start to play it, for example maybe it would be most effective to get dyno data after the SC/tune, Pfadt/tune and then meth/tune.

Still for customers it might be nice to see what the gain is component by component in case they just want some and not all of those mods........

Am I counting the days now or what!

Cheers,

Garry
 
Velocity;
It's going to be a long winter for you my friend.:)

Oh so very true LSXtasy but can you imagine how overpowering and blinding the light at the end of the tunnel is for this winter for me?!

Rather than dreading the arrival of each day I am going to be looking forward to the end of each day so much as one more day can be crossed off.

Besides which and I know this may sound strange, but it is not the having so much in life as the wanting which is fun. In some ways (maybe not in this case) the having is always anti-climatic compared to all the time you put into the wanting, dreaming and fantasizing.

I mean everyone will be participating in this during the construction phase and knowing that guys will drop by and probably enquire about how the job is going on my car is actually sort of exciting for me. Remember what I said in another thread maybe, "a sorrow shared is halved, a joy shared is doubled"? Everyone who has been cheering me on and all the supportive comments is such a nice experience for me, especially as an introvert, that it is more fun than perhaps driving the car will be!

OK, maybe not but you get the picture!

Cheers,

Garry
 
Thats is very feasible , your wish is granted :D

Manny you are way too good to me!

Makes me wish I'd have gotten the serious car bug a few years earlier.

Cheers,

Garry
 
It actually has been sort of fun for me too guys!

I'm not sure to be honest. I was so relieved to have it in Edmonoton on Tuesday morning when it was actually leaving was not a question that even entered my mind. It was more a case of I'd arrived after terrible road conditions and weather, no accidents, the car had not shifted during transport, it started when I went to unload it and my part in this project now was over!

I do await the news it has arrrived, safe and sound in Breaslau at Manny's but that is going to be very anti-climatic for me............

Cheers,

Garry
 
The new Pfadt TRI-Y headers came in to day :D

Always nice to see the Brown guy :rofl:
