Does Mac make ss headers for 99 gt?

If not which ss headers would bolt up?

Anyone with Mac chrome? How they look a year down the road?

Idk about stainless, but my Mac shorties(chrome) on my 1st Mustang did not stay pretty long at all. For looks and function, ceramic coated is the way to go hands down.
As far as I know the pro-chamber is a stock replacement part and bolts to other stock and stock replacement type parts like headers and cat-backs. Bolt-on

I have mac chrome longtubes. They still look decent but not show quality. I dont drive in snow or salt or anything so i would say mine are probably in better shape than most others' would be

Thanks for answers. I'm thinking i want ss long tubes but I can't really find any under like 800.

I see pypes but I'll stay away from those.

I heard ceramic chips ands rusts.

But, they help with heat under your hood. Wonder if aftermarket headers add heat..?

That's news to me(rusting & chipping) but you may be right.. Dunno

Yes they will keep heat down, I've always herd them to be a far superior choice to header wrap, ironically because the wrap traps moister and rusts.

Re: Stainless steel headers for Mac Pro Chamber

All in all I've owned ceramic coated and chrome. Both discolor and both keep exhaust temps down and although I've heard ceramic is better, I have yet to see a heads up showdown on horsepower figures. I have chrome long tube macs now and they still look ok but not great. HP all dependson primary diameter and collector size and engine mods of course.

Saw some nice SS Hedman I posted up on Cody's SC thread for $558 thread but when I went to the full website they are available for like every stang but ours. Saw some AR for 1500 bucks, can't justify that atm.

After combing the internet for past couple months, saw some nice deals pop up on Amazon just for a day or two but didn't have the cash available.

So here's basically what I've found for under a G:
Stainless steel - GT - Full-length - Headers - MUSTANG - FORD - 1999 - SummitRacing.com

The 599 JBA are ceramic coated ss mid length, so they're out of the picture.

The Hooker has 3 inch collector, so might be some custom work there hooking up to my MAC?

Jegs has these Hookers:
http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...Id=10002&Nty=0

Looks like it will be the JBA or one of the 3 Hookers, can't tell too much between them other than collector size, am I missing something?
Any thoughts or exeprience with the above?

About the ceramic chipping and rusting, one of the fellas in another header thread mentioned this, he posted up a pic of his, I think they were a few years on the road, they were all chipped and rusted.
