    SLP Headers

    Are these worth the money? They cost 1200 with the y-pipe and high flow cats.
    I want to be able to pass emissions in NC so I want cats but I also want something that is going to last(stainless). So is there a better setup for cheaper or is this the best way to go?

    SLP headers = 3x too much.
    The clearance simply sucks. They don't make anything near the SLP power claims.

    I believe JetHots are hookers with a coating.
    I would go with the JetHots.

    Good headers though.

    Pacesetters are a great budget longtube.
    JetHots as well.

    What type of inspection do they do in NC? LT's I don't believe will pass a visual inspection in most states.
    TSP Torquer V2 cam, ported heads,fast 90/90 combo, LT's, 3400 stall, magnaflow CB, most other bolt ons, full suspension, t-top and HID conversion

    MACs are great headers, but they are a mid-length...not a long-tube. I installed my MACs in a single-car garage on ramps...no problem. The fit was great, the clearance was great and the power was very good. Do NOT use their cats! I have since moved on to coated Hookers/Jet-hots...
