There are no cheap good LT headers. SLP is the "cheapest" one I would get. Kooks are the best. Pacesetters rust if you look at them too long, BBK is a crappy design and MACs cost too much for not being stainless. You'd also have to buy a new mid pipe since your BBK pipe is for shorty headers, not longtubes.

MAC chrome units are $410. They'll pit and flake and eventually rust out just like pacesetters or bbks. Once again, SLP is the best bang for the buck longtube, period. Stainless, ceramic and slip fittings for $767. Might look like a lot of $$$ up front but totally worth it.

Or just don't bother with longtubes until last since there are much easier/cheaper/more effective mods.

+1000 for scotty. I bought the SLP Ceramic LTs, and ignoring the fact that they took 4 months to get here because they were on backorder, they really are the best way to go for the money. Unless you have the cash to drop on Kooks. Really don't even bother unless you can get SLP or Kooks, just save and wait until you can afford either of those. I just got them and am going to try to get them on with my SLP catted xpipe and Magnaflow Magnapacks before the American Muscle show next weekend. I'm EXTREMELY excited to get the full exhaist on even if I can't before the show.

I lucked out and got some Mac LT's with a matching prochamber midpipe for $125. I couldn't pass that up! Never had a problem with them either, but here in Florida I don't have to worry about rust really. If I hadn't gotten them, I would have went with SLP's

Has anyone tried the Hooker Headers LT headers? I know they are a little pricey.


Have a big Mustang day!
