NEW: C5 LGM Longtube Header Install
The headers are a full 32” True Long Tube header that has been dubbed, "The most powerful C5 header on the Planet”! This header includes a complete header with a 3/8” flange and incorporates a “Race Style Merge Collector”, to a full 3” X pipe, and continues in 3” right up to the original 2 bolt muffler flanges. This makes this a full bolt on application that requires NO cutting or welding, and leaves the factory system completely intact incase you ever want to easily put the car back to stock. (C5) More...

An LS1's headbolts can only be used once. The bolts are TTY, or Torque To Yield. This means that when they are installed, they stretch permanently and can not be used again.

Infopic: The LS1 "magnet trick"
If you are installing a camshaft into your LS1/LS6 and you aren't removing the heads, you can either take your chances and hope the lifter retainers hold the lifter up and keep it from falling, or you can buy 16 retractable pen magnets with the pocket clip on them. You bend out the pocket clip, reach in with the magnet until it grabs hold of the lifter, then you extend the pen magnet until you have JUST enough extension to let the pocket clip hold onto the head. You need to keep it under tension, loose pen magnets won't do you much good.
