Arrow Photos of 2010 Camaro Borla Long Tube Headers Compared to Stock Manifolds

One thing that seems to be impossible to find out there is some real photos of Borla long tube headers for a 2010 Camaro.

I took some comparison shots while mine were being installed (dyno results here). The difference is significant.

I'll be posting video of how easy they slide into place in the near future, followed by some sound clips. Until then, enjoy the pics!

The stock manifolds don't look that restrictive, it's all that stuff after and the sharp bends.

When you had them installed, did they tune the computer to ignore the loss of the pre-cat and the O2 Sensor? I'm assuming they had to or you would be getting SES codes.

I thought I asked you to post some pics in the past, maybe I just thought I did. No biggie!

We don't have emissions testing in Michigan.

I am sure they did. Vector tunes all my cars and they really know what they are doing. I haven't driven it since the install because they are still working on it.

there is not a loss of the sensor. they are still there. but a code does get thrown. i havent had mine in to be fixed yet, but im just gonna wait until i get it tuned. it runs just fine not tuned. nothing has affected the driving yet, just the annoying check engine light on.

Do you have any pics of the headers installed? How do they fit? How is the clearance around the primaries?

Are they 1-3/4" or 1-7/8" primaries?

Not that I know of, but I will see if I can find some.

They fit like a glove. Putting them in in as almost effortless. They just glide right in. I had a video somewhere of the tech putting them in, I will look for that as well. There's decent clearance around them.

1-3/4"

Okay, I found the video and uploaded it.

It is pretty short as the headers slide right in. Check it out!
