Kook's or ARH headers?

Ok so I'm gunna pull the trigger soon on a set of 1 7/8 inch longtubes. I have alway loved Kook's headers and that seems the direction I'm heading in but i also like the ARH. Kooks guys do u like!!??(duh) ARH guys any thoughts. BTW I have the slp loudmouth II currently and am going to keep that. I'm just getting the headers and the cats no x pipe full system for now.

Happy Turkey day!!!!!

Here, I'll make it even more confusing for you...don't forget about Stainless Works headers too, they're just as good as the other two!

I have installed all 3 brands of headers a few times. They are all nice pieces but i think the attention to detail is better on the ARH in my opinion.

I have ARH 1 7/8" x 3" on my vette

I do not like the 3" Ball Socket flange that comes on ARH headers

Go Kooks

They come with a slip fit flange

Those are all good headers. You can't go wrong with any of them. I doubt there will be any performance or sound difference. To me it would come down to price.

Now....I'll really throw a monkey wrench at you. Take a look at LG. Should be in the same price range and they look like a great header.

Agreed....everyone is going to say that what ever they have is the best. That's why to me it would come down to price. Of those....what is the cheapest one.

And for me it had to include having them ceramic coated.

Agreed.

Like Caverman said, if you want more for your money, PM me what you're thinking and we'll more than likely get you into something better than what you'd expect for less $$.

Especially today and tomorrow.

Happy Turkey Day Gang!

Just installed Kooks 17/8 LTs, ceramic coated with HF cats, alone in my driveway. The headers go right on and fit perfectly. Never used any other headers so I cannot comment on them. However, you cannot go wrong with Kooks for quality, performance and price. I hope this helps. Lastly, I did not have to go to the muffler shop for any fitment issues or modification, everything just bolts right up!!!

These sorts of threads tend to turn into a survey of what the people online at any one moment have on their car. Give this a read. It should give you enough info to help you make an informed decision on your own.
