I think stang racr is right. It should fit. But summit racing has great customer service. I would call them and check. They even let me cancel orders before.

Re: Quick headers/ h pipe ?

It depends on the type of connector to the LT's,
I have Hookers on one car and BBK on the other, and they are not swap-able. BBK uses a flared flange and Hooker uses butt joint, others use slip joints.

If not modify, adapt & fit. It's only exhaust and can't be to difficult to make it work.

If it don't fit, I would try to get the proper flang and weld it on. Then its still boltable if needed.

You can buy those flanges if you need.

Keeping the ball and socket ends would make it easier to install and line up.
