    is this a good set? Mac Mids and Ory pipe???

    I'm lookin at buying some mac mids and an ORY pipe...are these good at all? Asking price is $315 includes shipping and some bolts/hanging gismos. Please look at his quote; what is EGR and is it Ok to block off?

    thanks!

    yes! Just make sure they fit your year.

    MACs are proven gainers, some little who which from MACs to LTs see little to no gains!

    EGR=Exhaust Gas Recirculation and blocking them off is fine

    I have them on my car. I blocked off the egr and the air pump. You just need to have them deleted out of your computer. Fit well and didn't take but 4 hours to install. I only give $280 for mine, but that is with my discount.

    There full of shit. The 01-02's flow better than 98-00, but headers made a huge diffrence when I put them on my SS. Don't listen to them. I have these same headers and y-pipe and a huge difference. You will need to get a tune. I would install these yourself and not worry about the shop. Less restriction and more power.

    4k miles and look like new....looks more like he spray painted the shit out of the headers and pipes. All that is going to peel off and like like ass...do you know if their coated under the paint? Like everyone said, you can gut the egr but block it off and tune it...unless you like the SES light.

    I had them on my 02 & loved them. The only problem w/ the rasp sound they made, but I put the bullet muffler in there & it made them sound better. Easy cheaper mod & runs great!!

    macs are some badass headers. they make just about the same power as long tubes.
    i was gonna get macs, but pacesetters were cheaper.

    I have them and love them.

    However, guys..look at the end of the ypipe in the pic he posted. The end where it meets the catback. Doesn't it look messed up to you? Maybe it's just me..I just woke up and I'm still groggy.

    If you look carefully at the right hand header you can see the lower emission pipe either broken off or cut off and welded shut. You also have a Y pipe that has been cut at the point it goes into the stock system. If you adapt it to your car you must ruin your Y pipe eliminating reusing it or selling it. It does not look like a good deal to me. What year car do you have, these look like 2000 and up headers by the flanges for the check valves.
