Best headers

I've looked at multiple threads and haven't got found a for sure answer.. I've seen people say some headers rub on the steering column and other issues as far as fitment goes... So which are best for fitment?

I've had good luck before with pacesetter on other vehicles and have heard good things about MAC as well..

Any ideas?

Mac is good from what I have read. I have Also heard good things about SLP long tubes, their not as pricey as some but not cheaply made like others. Any other mods done to your car?

Steeda cold air, steeda underdrive pulleys, steeda short throw, 3.73 gears, tune, bassani off road H, no cats, new exhaust from the stock manifolds back, every suspension mod you can imagine, I've got a 75mm throttle body and plenum on the way and longtubes are next once I decide on a brand, I was gonna stick with pacesetter one because I've had good experience with them, two they're priced well, and as long as they have no fitment issues

Best headers

If you liked Pacesetter you will love Mac. On Mustangs Pacesetter isn't the greatest.

I could be wrong, but I am almost certain Kooks are the best longtube header for our cars. Best fitment and allow for the transmission to be removed while still installed.

Macs are very nice headers. I have the Mac long tubes and installing them were okay they fit very nicely. No fitment problems at all and pretty big performance gains. Slp would be the other brand I'd go with. Hooks is the best of all for performance and fitment. Stay away from BBK and pacesetters. BBK has sent on pipe for stressing shaft and pacesetters don't hardly add any horsepower I heard but idk they may just suck overall.

I have SLP Ceramic coated long tubes, nothing but good things to say about them. And the price is pretty great too for the quality.
