    Upgrading Headers

    I currently have 3/4" Pacesetters. The ceramic coating is flaking off and I'm about to start on a semi-serious H/C/I swap (shooting for 450rwhp). With this H/C/I, I'm going to be replacing the exhaust and motor mounts, so the headers are coming off anyway. I was initially going to repaint the headers with VHT Header paint, but then thought about getting some stainless steel headers (7/8"). Would it be worth it to upgrade to some $800 headers (an extra $500 after I sell my Pacesetters) for that extra 1/8" primary?

    no go with LPP (maybe LLP?)Stainless or Texas speed i think have stainless now for around 450-600....unless you really want some 800+ kooks but thats just my opinion

    LPP's require some minor fitting to get them to clear everything but I would buy them again any day over a $1000+ worth of kooks. LPP's $500 bucks shipped to the door with ORY. Just need to go with 1 inch header bolts because they have thick flanges on them.
