    1 7/8 header questions

    is there anyone here running the Texas Speed headers? They have their own 1 7/8" ones now. they come coated for 499. I was gonna run ARH but for half the cost i could have these. Also my car is gonna get heads/cam in the future but wondering if the tube size is really gonna hurt me with stock head and short block. It is an m6 so i can choose my rpm band but still dont wanna give up a ton of torque because of too big of a tube. Is there anyone running a 1 7/8 header on a bolt-on only car?

    Kooks 1-7/8" LT's here with stock heads, cam and intake. I asked the same question on the Board before purchasing them. My logic was simply that this allows for future upgrades. I may give up a little low end torque, but after the installation of the headers and a Frost tune, I certainly did not notice any low end loss.

    sjsingle1, is there a reason why you would get the ARH or KOOKS over the TSP? was the fitment good? i was thinking stainless because i like the idea of all stainless exhaust but i figure, only the top of the header tube is seen anyways so why not a cheaper alternative. plus it leaves about 500 for other mods like clutch and motor mounts i wanna do at the same time.

    I'll throw out an answer until sjsingle1 returns -- Kooks LT's were certainly more expensive, but the fitment and quality were top notch. I believe the same can be said about ARH. If money is an issue, then I see no reason why the TSP headers will not work equally as well.

    i like the rust resistance of stainless......and of course the KOOKS or ARH are a better header .....not that TSP is bad......but for the price of the TSP you cant get better
