Where do you come up with this crap? Any dyno's or sound clips you've found to back up the "better tone" and "maybe 3 whp more" statements?

Granted, they look nice, but I haven't found any comparison dynos yet to other sets of headers. Would love to see them though.

As a person that has had or installed ebay headers, bb headers, and gen2 headers. I can say that I felt more low end torque with these. I couldn't say that these make more power, maybe just changed the powerband.

But of all three, they are a very cool design and really become a great piece to look at in the engine bay. Also out of all 3 they fit the best, the o2 sensors are threaded properly and in the correct position.

Also don't get me wrong, they are a pita to put on cause on the "equal length", but imo its well worth it.

Kid talks out of his arse all the time. Simple word of advice, add him to your ignore list. Never seen him post anything of value.

GLWS OP.

GLWS OP.
and who are you again? actually just picked up some headers that are ported which i don't think will do much but for the 100 dollar price tag and the good fitment it'll be good.

I'm about to ignore you because you don't have to much valuable advice around here it seems.

and to the guy 2 post's above me yeah equal length will create a little more torque and maybe a few hp's. agreed and the tone is a little throatier.
