Well it looks appealing because it has everything you need, but the price does seem alittle on the high end

Price is higher because they are made in America. According to a lot of people I've talked to, they are best out there for quality and performance though. I like my Pypes setup a lot, but my next car I'm going to spend the extra $$ for Kooks.

Kooks headers are made 30 min from my house.. Worth every penny u will spend and have a lifetime warranty! If u call quality overpriced buy that pipes garbage. The reason they are out of stock is because they make ur headers when u order them. They are not sitting on a shelf.

I have kooks and they are competitively priced against American racing, Borla, Stainless works, And Bassani.. The fitment is perfect ,and the quality is top notch. Nothing but the best for my ride.

If you look at the specs it says they are long tubes. I want the long tubes because I helped my brother in law install shortys on a 2005 and it was a pain in the a$$ and it never was quite right. I feel the long tubes will be easier to get to bolts and such

It is easier to install with the exception of the starter. You might need a crows foot for the top bolt. The link u sent looked like they were short tubes. Reason why I asked.

Yeah this kit looks like the complete deal and that it would be easier to install than trying to piece it all together.

Should be good just to let u know put the floor jack under the front of ur tranny loosen the engine mounts and they will almost fall out when u raise the jack.

Get a manifold ratchet which is a really short one that will save you some time and angular socket attachments so you can get the best position to turn the ratchet. They come out easily once the bolts are loose and the engine mounts are out of the way. I did it all myself as one person and the only other recommendation i have is buy a 12 pack and have someone help you out because a second set of hands would have turned an all day job into a 4 hour job.

It says long tubes but I think they're mid length. I don't know that kooks makes any true long tubes... At least not that I have seen. Most people have that have kooks "LT's" actually have mid length headers

Yeah that's true, but it's still better to work with than shorts IMO
