    Depends on how much you have to spend. Kooks are nice if you have the cash, QTP's like mine are nice and cheaper, or you could get some pacesetters which are the cheapest I've seen.

    Texas Speed had a deal with their long tubes and Y-pipe a while back. I think it was like $500 shipped to your door.

    kooks and ARH are unsurpassed quality, expensive but you get what you pay for. QTP is another solid brand out there

    Cheaper yes, but not better. Pacesetters are good, but you get what you pay for with nice stainless steel headers...

    more or less ya, but eventually the pacesetters will rust. But as far as performance there just about the same, the merge collectors on the headers themselves are just about the only difference.

    You would be surprised the differences. I would personally get Kooks or ARH 1 7/8" race headers with a catless Y if you can afford it, if not, I'd get either the Ebay stainless or the TSP 1 7/8ths, depending on what kind of climate you live in. Stainless if you drive it in snow and stuff. You'll lose about 15hp with the 1 3/4" over the 1 7/8" TSP, but they won't rust.

    Wrong...TSP did a dyno comparison on a stock motor with 1 3/4" vs. there 1 7/8" and they gained something like 15 or 17hp and only lost 2 ftlbs of torque. Like thats even noticeable. 1 7/8 is the way to go even on a stock motor.

    Any long tube other than SLP is good. If you don't like rust get stainless steel.

    Those are peak numbers. What about avg hp and tq?
