Kooks/pypes

Been looking around and something caught my attention.ive read that pypes headers idk if that goes for mid pipe or just the brand in general are knock offs of kooks.from what I read its made of 304 stainless steel.if pypes are knock off of kooks would it produce the same sound and performance as kooks or would it still be different ?can someone verify any more differences in the 2

Every LT will perform the same and only be off by a couple of HP and TQ numbers if anything it's just they brand name and material that they are made out of this includes Steel, and coat. I have JBA LTs and I love em sounds amazing with SLP cat back.

Actually, there are large diffs. Welds, bends, coatings, shapes, materials, customer service...
Headers are something u dont wanna keep removing for repairs due to install time is high.
A better quallity header will flow better, fit better, and better chance of not cracking due to flexion. Not all long tubes are the same. Equal lengths are superior, but harder to fit usually.
Get what u can afford, but I wouldnt skimp on headers.
I know people that have great luck with pacesetters (another cheap brand), but know many more that have had them removed more than once and had the price of Kooks invested!

Kooks are like doing really good lines of coke. Pypes are like doing the same lines but from some dude who cut it with too much baking soda. YMMV.

I have no experience with Pypes, but do Kooks. Should be a nice setup! Good luck!
And thanks, I love the Grabber Blue...my fav mustang color by far.
