    While I can't really speak for the quality of the others, I have been quite pleased with my Hooker LT's. No fitment problems, haven't had a leak and I have no major ground clearance issues.

    is it easy enough to run it without cats. is there any modification required to take them off, or can they simply be removed and have the headers and y pipe connect to the mag system.

    This thread looks very familiar....

    Buying headers is tough, pls help.

    Anyways, after buying the OBX and taking measurements of them, they're junk. Don't buy them, EVER.

    IMO only Kooks, QTP, ARH and possibly Pacesetters (if you want to go cheap) should be considered.

    I ended up putting Kooks on mine (actually completed the install today) and I love them. Sound is awesome, fitment is good and clearance seems ok too.

    Good luck with your decision.
