    Question Best Headers to get

    I need the best headers to match the cams that I have. I have COMP Cams K54-424-11, so what are the best headers that will go well with them?

    Well first if you have LS engine you are not going to have multiple camshafts. Second we know nothing about your car or engine so that would be helpful. as far as headers are concerned its all personal preference and how much money you want to drop. Me personally I would go with a set of kooks headers. now 1 3/4 or 1 7/8 is up to you and depending on your power goal.

    I would make sure you do stainless or ceramic...its worth the money. I would not recommend going the cheap route on headers, you will regret it...

    I'll also add, does Jersey let you use long tube's? If you have visual inspections you'll need a CAT ORY in order to meet the inspections. A tune will also be needed to eliminate any codes that would fail too. Tune by Frost has a great mail order tune.

    Many of us are using Pacestter LT's (Ceramic) a good affordable header that doesn't break the bank. A set plus non cat ory cost me $450 3 yrs a go.

    FYI - you don't match headers to a cam. Headers will improve performance of any engine with or with out aftermarket cam. 1 7/8" or 1 3/4" are standard header sizes for LS motors.

    You'll see about 20 hp gain (roughly) on stock cam & heads. I can't say what you'll get with your car because of too many unknown varibles and tuning can make more gains as well.
