2010 2SS Stainless Power

I spotted a set of Stainless Power, with high flow cats to connect to stock exhaust for $687.74 (w/coupon and free shipping) from AutoAnything.com. Folks seem to like them but like anything there has been an issue now and then. The latest I read was gaps in the flange weld. Has anyone had any experience with them or have heard anything elase good or bad? I know a tune will get the most out of them but will the engine throw any error without a tune?

As long as the O2 sensors are NOT relocated farther away from the cats, use extenders or eliminated completely, it should not throw any codes.

The Stainless Power LT headers do use an extended wiring harness for the O2 sensors, from the AutoAnything.com website:

Features
  • Replace restrictive factory exhaust manifolds with budget-friendly Stainless Power Headers
  • Tuned for your specific year, make and model vehicle
  • Maximizes horsepower, torque and throttle response
  • TIG welded from high-quality T304 stainless steel
  • 3/8" thick T304 stainless steel header flanges
  • CNC laser-cut flanges and mandrel-bent tubes
  • Formed merge collectors and welded-in merge spikes
  • Welded O2 sensor bungs (most vehicles)
  • Includes extensions for front O2 sensors (most vehicles)
  • Bolt-on design uses factory locations for straightforward installation
  • Each header has the Stainless Power badge TIG-welded in place
  • Install-ready kit includes headers, bolts, RTV hi-temp silicon and clamps
  • Couple your headers with a Stainless Power Exhaust System for a budget-friendly performance package
  • Your Stainless Power Headers are backed by a 2-year warranty

I have stainless power heads with highflow cats and they are great the welds are fine, I do have a 2013 with electric power steering and know many brands of headers have interference fit problems with the older style Camaros power steering/column and have to have them dented a little by the shaft...... I bought mine from Maryland speed for $712 with cats free shipping. I did have to have the CEL eliminated due to slowed response from the front 02 sensor being farther down stream meaning it sent: delayed response code to the ECU..... You will want the headers to have a new set of g.m. exhaust metal exhaust gaskets for the headers..do not use the silicone junk and the gaskets are only like $20.00. I polished mine with a buffing head and stainless polish stick I got at harbor freight before install and now they have a nice shine with the Champagne color cooked in. They do make the car so much louder, and they do not require a harness extender that I know of as I did not need one. Good luck

They are a great budget header system. That's why I sell them.

Well I took the plunge and ordered the "Stainless Power" LT w/cats for $687.74 delivered.
Should I get a new set of gaskets or can I reuse the stock gaskets?

Update: Oops I just reread the post by christianchevelle who said to get new gaskets, where did you get them?

You can re-use the old gaskets. I re-used mine and there was no problem. Most of us who do headers re-use the stock gaskets. If you do get new ones, then get them from the dealer. Do not get aftermarket gaskets.

Rats, last night I ordered new gaskets from newgmparts.com, I'll try to cancel and call the dealer.
