BBK LT Headers FOR MY 02 GT

I was surfing craigs this weekend and found BBK long tube headers for $150 for sale. Im supposed to keet up today and buy them. I think its a good buy but input would help. What all do I need for a good long lasting install? I'm not going cheap on other parts. What should I expect cost on installation?

You will most likely need gaskets for those and make sure they fit you're car model, but yes 300-600 on install

Are they worth buying? I am planning on putting cams in down the road.

They give you great sound and good power. Remember you have to get a shorty midpipe. For a 600 dollar upgrade and 20 hp I think it's good and great sound

That's cool, good buy. If I were you I would ceramic coat them, saves your engine bay from a lot of heat

I looked this up before buying the headers. Do you know a real good way or tips on doing this the best way?

I bought mine ceramic coated already so I don't really know but maybe one of the other guys on here will know. I'm thinking you may be able to buy some of that high temp ceramic paint from an auto parts store and do 4-5 coats
