What's everyone running for long tubes?

Hello peeps, I was just curious as to what everyone is running on their coyotes for LT's. Next year, that'll probably be my second purchase after a tuner. Now I've heard brands like Pypes have fitment ISSUES with one of the primaries hitting the steering assembly? I want a set of LT's where I won't have clearance ISSUES, while obtaining a great power gain. Currently I was looking at JBA. Opinions, let's hear some

American Racing Headers here. Very expensive but you will never hear about fitment issues. Plus they're made right here in the USA. Long Island as a matter of fact.

I'm not opposed to spending extra for quality, fitment, and performance. Thanks grabber, I'll check them out.

I'm running Roush AB with resonator delete right now... been working and within the next few weeks I'm getting the BBK LT headers N BBK Off-Road X Pipe & Custom tune by a Tuner in San Antonio.

BBK LT Headers run $540 With 6% Forum discount and the BBK Off-Road X Pipe is $248 With the 6% Forum discount,

The offroad X pipe will delete my cats, so I'm going to possibly have the loudest set up..+ My tune will be installed with the ghost cam. The resonator delete was $100 at a little mexican shop. My setup will probably be the loudest of all. Lol.. 😍

Lol nice. I honestly am not putting too much stock in sound. I currently only have the MRT KR AB, and need to finish it off before I start looking into Vortech kits.

You're looking at the wrong places

ARH, Kooks or SW are really the only companies I would get headers from to put on my personal car. I've never once had a customer come to us stating they had a fitment issue on those 3.

We've had a couple fitment issues on BBK but we've only sold a couple sets of BBK, that says enough for me. Pypes has stepped up their game recently but for some reason I can't put them on our cars.

We just picked up ARH 2 months ago and those have already become our second largest seller of headers behind kooks. Can't go wrong with the "big 3".

I ordered mine from Beefcake Racing but will never order another thing from Terry again. I would start with Jay (jayman33) first and go from there.

Thanks guys for all the great info. I'll look into the "big 3". Grabber, why won't you order from beefcake again? I was probably going to go through them when it comes time for the vortech.

I didn't like the way Terry conducted himself the last week over some tuning controversy.

I'm Running BBK Long Tubes with the BBK Shorty X Pipe, Not fitment issues here. Picked up some pretty good gains with a custom dyno tune from DiabloSport as well. Not to mention I have the 90mm BBK Throttle body as well. Now to get my hands on a Boss Intake Manifold.......

Hey Fastlane, I'm off work tomorrow, so I will film a cold start for you. I'll get some revs in there too. Either way, it's a great decision to have to make eh!!
