A lot of people on V6P have them. I've heard they sound good... They give pretty good gains, but are a pain in the *** to put on. And rust unless you get them coated.

MAC says that or someone else? I think MAC says their stuff is coated but it really sucks.

You need to get O2 sensor extensions. Or ditch your cats and get MILs.

Should sound good and provide decent power. The short tube headers barely provide any performance gain. I hope you know someone with a lift though. LT driveway installs aren't fun.

HTS stands for High Temp Silver. They're painted. I have MAC shortys and they're holding up fine.

HTS is High Temp Silicone It doesn't stop corrosion but suppose to slow it down, and it will scratch off very easily, noticed that after putting on the catback and draging it under the car. I think i remember a while back someone saying that mac is starting to ceramic coat them? Most people get ceramic coated ones or the get them "jet hot" coated i think it is.

MAC is starting to offer ceramic coating, however to this date they have only made 2 pair for the V6 and that was almost 4 months ago. I have no idea when they will start mass producing them, but you know as soon as they do we will have them.
