    I think I'm down to American Racing and Kooks. I think I may be leaning American Racing but looking forward to more comments on here

    You cant go wrong with the either. Kooks will probably get the higher vote if this was more looked at. But, ARH are awesome headers. My vote still goes to Kooks.

    I say ARH (not having ever seek Kooks in person). I have ARH and they fit perfectly, including the catted Y pipe, first time no modifications or issues. Very nice stainless steel, look new after over a year on the car.

    This is why I said Kooks. I have never seen ARH I would not hesitate to put either LT's on my TA.

    Flip a coin.

    LPP does not respond to e-mails has varied quality for fitmant, etc. issues and has virtually diappeared when it comes to customer service. I was all about the LPP's until I got deaper into research. Kooks or ARH still leaning towards ARH unless someone can steer me to Kooks.

    So, you bought the LPPs anyway? I don't think you will be disappointed with the fitment.

    Yes, I'm going to give it a try. I really hope they work out well. If not there will be a set for sale and I'll go ARH. I'm trying to do a quality 1 time build but it's expensive. I'm doing Strano/Koni 4/4's and misc. other parts there, already done my intake with MTI, PP TB, Free Mods, ASP Underdrive pulley, Smooth Bellows, free mods and a Pro 5.0 short throw and I'm going to do the stainless LPP's and a mufflex exhaust system, having 4.10's put in this week and then a tune. Shooting for 350rwhp with this and then will decide if anything else needs to be done. I may even do a mild cam down the road which will get into alot more.

    Good luck. I have a mufflex "style" exhuast. Its custom and comes very close to some certain componets. Nice exhuast no doubt. The Mufflex flows great. What muffler you going with? Have fun.

    Just a tip.....try not to have a dyno number as a goal.

    How the car runs and feels is what matters. Dyno's can vary greatly, and outside things (steeper gears like the 4.10's) can lower the RWHP number as well.

    Mr. Lous very true. I'm actually going with the 4.10's for the feel and fun of the car oppposed to dyno number results. I think of it this way; A Pro 5.0 allows you to feel the car in your hand and the 4.10's allow you to feel it in your seat. Most everything else is sound, breathability, etc.

    For the other question I'm looking at the Mufflex with Spintech.

    I think you'll be happy with the LPPs. They will sound great with any muffler you decide on.
