    I used the u clamps that came with it and then i had a leak so i put band clamps on one at a time and it ended up being my dp was leaking a little bit. Just enough to make it tick when about 1/2 throttle. So if you want to put the band clamps on there about $10 each or so. You would need 2 2.25" and 2 3".

    The SSAC's that I ordered were also XS Power. Some creative work with a deadblow mallet and ratchet straps fixed that crossover issue, that and the stainless steel band clamps. I'll get pictures this afternoon when I get home to finish putting it back together when the new injectors and O2 sensor extension cable get here.

    okayy. so i was definitely going to go with ssac, but xs doesn't seem to get user-friendly reviews given this thread...wonder why/when ssac switched to xs? guess ill just go with SD then.

    Hmm When I ordered my Speed Daddy's there was a DNA Motoring Badge on them.
    The 80's and early 90's Vettes were slow and underpowered, the 92-96 at least had the LT1.

    Here are the pictures of what I did with the joints on mine. The clamps that are used I got from Sturdevants/Pronto. They were around 12 to 13 each for 2.25" and 3" clamps. I believe they are called Torxtite and they are stainless. The clamp on the flex-pipe came with the SSAC headers.
