Default CHE K-Member Brace with BBK Headers

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with header fitment with the CHE K-Member installed? CHE reports the following: "will NOT work with SLP GT V8 long-tube headers, or the American Racing long tube headers for the GT500. May not work with other long tube headers that have not been tested at this time."

Will any headers fit? I would like to install BBK long tube headers with BBK Catted X-pipe and the CHE K-Member Brace.

Thanks in advance!

Not an expert & they were installed @ / by my tuner's shop along with other work being done.
Also, the only 2 pictures I have & I sold this car last Sept.
2011 GT500
Kooks 1 3/4" LT's
CHE K-member brace with torque limiters.
Car also ran Kooks " green " catted X pipe.
Passed N.J. state inspection with the set up in July 2014 & 2016.
If you do this install, expect more NVH, especially in 5th & 6th gears.

GREAT pictures... worth more than a thousand words! Now I can tell what the CHE K-Member looks like when installed and the header clearance.

Was the NVH very noticeable or only noticeable if you knew what to listen for?

You'll know it.
The touque limiters may add to what the brace makes, never used it without them.
....................Never bothered me enough to think about removing it..
