New to forum...Looking for help with V6 exhaust
Hi, just joined the forum, had our G8 V6 since about Feb. of this year. So far all we have done is add a K&N CAI.
We want to add a catback exhaust setup with longtube headers and high-flow cats. I've been reading on here, mainly from hazer and blackpanther about what they've done with their V6 G8s. So we purchased Solo's mach shorty catback exhaust kit for the V8 (heard that it would bolt right onto the V6), Solo's ultra high flow converters for the V8, and Pacesetter longtube headers for a Camaro SS 3.6.
So... we take it to the exhaust shop yesterday, and he tells us the longtube headers will not fit and the V8 high-flow cats likely won't either. Opinions?? Should I take it elsewhere and see what they say, or do we need other parts? The mechanic yesterday suggested buying shorty headers, but we wanted longtubes. Note, we've never been here before so I don't know how reputable they are.
I can provide part numbers/links of what we bought if necessary, would appreciate any help!! Thank you!!
