    i need to do some major exhaust work on mine, seems the military boys do some bashing. was thinking headers with cheap-o pepboys muflers would work cool.

    The Hummer's ran headers on the 6.2. I have a set but haven't bolted them up yet. Kinda hoping to turbo it instead which would make them useless to me.

    Stan's Headers use a tri-y setup, and they are nearly $500 a pair. That's the only commercial option. Hummer headers are the only other alternative that I know of, but they do require some slight modification from what I'm told.

    Yep. Stan's Headers are the only mfg. still offering 6.2L headers. They're a true equal-length header design IIRC. The Hummer headers aren't equal-length and aren't like high performance headers, but probably flow better than stock exhaust manifolds. The Hummer headers won't be a simple bolt-on installation, however, due to the fact the outlets will be pointing down onto the c/k series frame rails. Modifications will be necessary to make them work.

    I wouldn't spend the money for Stan's headers. I would use that money for a turbo. If you could find Hummer headers cheap enough, though, that might be a good project to try out.

    The Hummer headers I have, the passenger side exits almost stright out the back of the header just like the factory 6.2 manifold. The drivers side one is almost a center dump, also like the factory manifold.

    I haven't fit them up or run them yet, but it doesn't look too terribly hard to make them work. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
