BBK Shorty Header Issues Resolved !!!

Long Story Short was not happy at all with the BBK headers for my V6 the slag was chromed over,factory weld was leaking, no indent for oil dipstck tube I was just pissed, very pissed !!!!!
Until I contacted Ashley H their customer servive manager, I was expecting the normal manufactor run around and BS story etc,etc
But much to my surprise She listen to me and was very understanding that my expectation of a BBK product had not been met and immediately set the wheels in motion to have a replacement set sent out to me !!NOW THATS CUSTOMER SERVICE IMHO Going forward If I need a product BBK will be my first stop Thank you Ashley

Return them while you have the chance, shorty headers are useless unless its a show off thing since they're chrome

No it's not an opinion it's a fact, I was offering some advice not bashing you take it easy there...

In case you thought "unless its a show off thing" was making fun of you, I just meant in the way of car shows

Ahhhh !!! Maybe I misunderstood If so My Bad !!! I was simple giving credit to a company for backing there products
And so far as the no gain.This topic is heavily debated subject I totally agree L/T get you much more HP
But you do get a bit of a increase not much between 5 to 7 depending on what other mods you have
My stock hearders cracked and the exhaust leak was drving me crazy. So I went with the BBK instead of factorys the BBK for the most part are OEM
This is my DD I needed it done fast and simple hence I went with shorties and the shine ones are being replaced with ceramics
I've been a member for awhile and have heard all the debate on headers So i did what another Founding member suggested had the installer run 3" pipe from the header to the cat I'm only running one cat each side cut the other one out as we all know V6 without cats sounds like crap for the most part
