    Friend has the shorties on his 94 and loves them. BBK isn't a bad brand at all from what I've heard.

    Are BBK's LTs stainless, coated, chrome, or painted steel? I think I have only seen ads for their shorty style headers.

    I think they are ceramic coated.

    I have bbk headers on my 2000 ta. the only fitment issue was on the passenger side, the flange where you bolt the y-pipe to hit the floorboard, so i massaged the floor up a bit and out of the way, the ory fit fine for me, i only used it about a week till i welded the cats in.

    had a minor fittment issue with the cats i bought, but i got em in, the y pipe just doesnt look like a y anymore, more like a u.

    I have the BBk LT's the passenger side is an issue but easily fixed. It is a good tight fit so you can still lower the car if you want and they slide right in when you install them. I have stainless headers but they also come ceramic coated. I paid $390.00 with all the piping and Y from Jeggs plus O2 extensions and plugs. With the BBK's you will need to take out the EGR and AIR system.

    they come in coated and in chrome mine are chrome and they are about a year and a half old still look good and the fit was better than most headers i didnt have to cut or bend anything... I cant say the same for pacesetters or some kooks ive seen installed.
