Just cause they were both sold on Ebay doesn't mean they're the same.

    i follow. that's why my advice in other threads was ask the seller for manf info. try your best to get a comfort level of honest info about the product. i wouldn't go by photos and backroom rumors. press the seller. i said before, it is shady if the seller can't provide details.

    i'm still waiting for my tax dollars, oh boy can't wait to stimulate the economy, lol

    so I have been talking with the seller of these headers. The headers seem to be on the up and up but the seller seems to have limited info. I asked about EGR placement because it is different on the 2000's and the response was "IDK we sell what is in the auction what you see is what you get." I plan on blocking these plates off when I get an ls6 intake manifold but until i get the money for that I will be stuck with EGR. If anyone has any Info on If this setup can support the 2000's EGR it would be greatly appreciated.

    Well sorry if I didn't go all the way back to day one. Most products are copied. Being in the exhaust industry, you learn that. Small changes are just their way of trying to convince people that they are different. They make a change here and there and try to sell it off as their design.

    That being said, these are not even the same shape as Hooker LTH's! The Jet Hots are a closer design to the Hookers!

    This perticular design is though very close to the SS Auto Chrome Headers. Notice the three peice primary tube on cylinder 5 and the two peice primary tube on cylinder 7 and where it is joined together.

    Alot of the time, changes accure in the design from manufacturer to manufacturer, especially if they are stainless as most mandrel bending machines are right hand, thus you have multiple peice primary tubes.

    You said it your self. They are not the same. There are small changes. Not the same headers.
