Will these fit a N/A?
Does the cheap price/ no name company spell trouble?
Any other thoughts?

I want headers, but dont want to spend 800 dollars and I cant find a used one right now.

You don't want those. Those are the design with the seperate y pipe...the ones that crossover doesn't fit, and the y pipe is always coming undone

If you feel like welding the y pipe in place, and shaving your trans case, and taking 8 hours to install..then go for it.

Otherwise look for the real speed daddy ones:

Will the speed daddy ones fit a NA? The ebay specs say only for use on 2004 SS

Thanks for your help. I'm searching for cheap ones second hand but the speed daddy ones seem like a good price compared to some of the other ones I've seen. Do you have them? Any problems or positive things to say about them?

I don't have them installed but they will be soon before my nitrous setup. I know several people who have them and they're good headers. No problems so far

They're good headers. I have a set to go on my car soon. A lot of the GP guys recommend getting better band clamps and replacing the flex joint with one from ZZP. Some have had problems with them leaking out of the box, some have never had problems with them. I've never heard of any complaints on fitment, though. And yes, they will fit on both the NA and SC 3800, series 2 and 3.

Same size flange where it connects to cat converter pipe? Only asking bc I see a flex pipe comes with it and I have a magnaflow cat which bolts up directly to my stock exhaust manifold.

Yep, it does come with a flex (a junk one). It bolts straight up to the cat back, replacing your front and rear manifolds, crossover pipe, downpipe, and cat. You'd have to weld in your own cat if you want one.

Is it just a cat or an entire downpipe with cat?

If its just a cat, you'd have to weld it in anyways.

If its an entire downpipe, it won't work with any headers that I know of unless you cut the cat out of it and weld it in the header's downpipe.

Its the whole shabang (dp and cat). Im sure with ingenuity and about 300 dollars I could get the headers to fit the DP, but im not so rich

Try selling the downpipe on here and buy yourself a high flow cat. Have an exhaust shop weld it in, or have them cut the one out of your downpipe and weld it in.. Shouldn't cost much money.
