Long tube headers

Yo I'm looking for some longtube headers like can I put any kind on there b/c I was looking on eBay to see prices and they got a lot of different kinds like does it really matter if it's name brand or not

Ceramic coated headers.

Since you live in a place that gets snow and rain a lot you definitely do not want to cheap out. If you don't get something ceramic coated then you will most likely be replacing them in 2 years when they rust out. And for the love of god, not Ebay

People will say shy away from them but I just installed my pacesetters. Got them from American muscle they are cheap like 250$ I got them sandblasted because they had a cheap black paint on them. Then I painted them with ceramic header paint myself from an auto parts store and the paint held great and hasn't flaked at all

If you have 1000$ to spend on headers then sure go ahead lol but my pacesetters did me just fine.. But it's your money man, if I had a grand I would still get my pacesetter then spend the other 650 on suspension upgrades

You get what you pay for. Its not all about the material or how well they hold up or whatever. Kooks and ARH are the only ones (AFIAK) that are true equal length primaries. So unless you get one of those brands you lose out on the scavenging and basically just have real big well flowing manifolds.

I did the install myself so if you do do it yourself I can walk you thru it.. It was a ***** but worth the time cause it would've cost me 600 to get them installed

Definitely worth it. Speaking of headers, I have longtubes (obviously) an am looking at a set of off-road H-pipes right now, my only concern is he says it doesn't come with the hardware.. I should have all the hardware already correct since I have my midpipe now??

Yeah i mean I did it on stands, just need basic hand tools and an impact is extremely helpful along with some helping hands..

I had to cut some old bolts off cause they were seized.. so my h pipe is welded no bolts or flanges but new hardware is always better.. If not just use what you can and get he missing pieces
