    Kooks and ARH

    So my buddy Rhinoman got his Kooks longtubes in and on his GTO last week. When I seen them I thought that they were American Racing Headers cause they looked just like the American Racing Longtubes (except they were longer tubes and the collector was smaller) that went on my own 00 Trans Am. Honestly they looked to be the made of the same materials and parts and workmanship, even welded in the same places. I was just wondering if anyone else had seen this for themselves?

    Kooks and ARH's have different collector design. Other than that, they are very much similar... High quality stainless steel headers!

    I love my Kooks.

    Kooks and QTP longtubes were the same design for the longest time as well. The collectors were the difference there as well.

    I got the 3" race collector on mine. The ones for the GTO were smaller more like 2.75 (I didnt measure), and a little longer.


    Dont get me wrong, they both make a great header, but more or less its the SAME part from two differnt companies.

    The collector design is completely different on the ARH than the Kooks...

    So unless u mean they're the same by the fact that they're both stainless... they're not the same. Just my $.02
