    These are not the same headers (XS/SS Autochrome/LPP) they were selling on Ebay in 06. These are copies. Not sure if anyone has actually bought and used these successfully. I have the XS/SS Autochrome ones. Fit great for me. Did not have to cut/bend, or do anything to the drivers side collector. Using a custom y pipe with em. Don't see how anyone can say they flow bad. They're the same design as Hooker/Jet Hot and are 1 3/4'. Here's a few pics, ohh and lmao at the guy bashing with SLP lts and a Flowmaster cat back.

    Well when you say stuff like you did, you open yourself up to attack...

    And yes, those look just like the headers I have, except the EGR tube on mine is HUGE. Probably 3/4".

    I can read. And I can also tell when someone needs to back off just a bit if they are really looking to discuss a matter, and not just argue for the sake of argument.

    Re-boot.

    I know nothing about these specific headers, but a long tube design has to be better flowing than the OEM manifolds.

    Sorry man chill out. I rolled the dice a few years ago with my Ebay headers so give it a try if you like. Just be prepared for the unexpected.

    Someone explain to me why Kooks/ARH are $800 and these are $240 or whatever.

    I think the answer is obvious.

    I can tell you my headers are great. Only thing I don't like about em is the air/egr crap. I can deal with it for $500 less tho.

    I'm not saying they are bad....for that price, if they fit they are worth it.

    But there has to be a reason for the price difference.

    No name brand. Its that simple. Kooks and such, your just paying for the name and such.

    $550 more for 5 letters?

    I doubt it.
    I am thinking material used.


    I love my Kooks. They look exactly the same as they did when they got here 3 years ago.
