    If you got the money go kooks. I picked up their race headers used for 400 and havent had one bit of trouble with them.

    The answer is quite simple....get the best...American Racing Headers, their design and esp their y pipe merge blows kooks out of the water.

    +1 with Pacesetters.. most of the guys in the local group have them.. SUPER easy install.. look, sound, and last great... and don't cost a fortune.

    I ordered Pacesetters last week for right at $500 shipped to my door. I hope I will be happy with them.

    Pacesetters are the best bang for your buck, but if you got a fatter wallet and want that extra bit American Racing Headers, Kooks or QTP are your boys. Any of them are going to make that Magnaflow scream at high RPM.

    Pacesetters are fine but you will always get what you pay for. It isn't always about performance differences but sometimes the quality of fittment and materials used. Pacesetters perform but have heard of them rusting up or the coatings peeling badly. These could just be isolated instances but hope all goes well with the purchase!

    Explain to me what is so special about their Y-pipe merge? It is very similar to everyone elses.

    The best Y-pipe is QTP/Flowmaster!!!!

    That is excellent proof you have stated! not

    Maybe fitment, and yeah, it needs some help to fit right, but the merge collector is way better. It merges the left and right bank much smoother. Not everything is a direct bolt-on!

    The AR's is just like everyone elses. The two sides slam together. Whatever, you know what, you know so much more about exhaust then me, so tell me how is it better??????????

    American Racings Y has a merge collector. QTPs Y fits like poo. Two friends of mine have them and both hate them. That merge is good for maybe a .5 hp gain over a "slammed one" anyway.

    I have Pacesetter and while they work I'd like to upgrade to better quality and looks. I say go Big and get the American Racing Headers and y-Pipe.
