    Kooks Headers

    Looking at buying a set of Kooks headers items #6506s. Have a few questions.

    Should I pay for the coating on these headers?
    I realize they are stainless steel so they shouldn't rust. Is there any point of really getting them coated.

    Does anyone running these headers have some photos of the car with ground clearance?

    Anyone have any codes for a discount from marylandspeeed, I plan on buying them from there?

    Just installed a set of Kooks a few weeks ago -- still finishing up the job. No need to have them coated imo unless you are attempting to cut down on underhood heat. They are works of art!

    As mentioned...no need for coating.

    Clearance...
    Low point is a cutout flange. Only thing I have ever scraped.

    Yea the guys at KY Speed are pretty straight up. I've asked questions about things on their site and I've gotten quick, concise answers. When I start buying stuff for my T/A, I'll go through them.

    That driver side kooks header is a MAJOR pain to install. But its worth it in the end!!

    Received my headers today they look sweet. It seems they sent me a set of kooks catted y-pipe instead of the ORY. Think I should by a ORY instead?

    It might sound better with a catted y. What catback are you running?

    The problem with the clearence isue is not really the header but the Y pipe. My Y fits like crap, and I'm not really sure what to do yet
