I don't agree.

I like Kooks LT headers and Borla S-Type exhaust. It's an awesome combination.

listen to clips and pick out the one you think sounds best. You'll get close to the same gains with all of them, don't let anyone else tell you different

As long as you install the cats, yes. A tune is always best, but you can get away tuneless if you have to.

You have to admit that with the huge amount of stupid answers given to questions on here daily that it's hard to separate the two some times.

I think ARH / Magnaflow rocks .. that's what I have

From a few years ago when I had them installed ... just the L/Ts / Hi flo Cats and Tune .. stock catback:

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...hlight=Crowley

AVG gain was 36 hp 43.7tq
Peak HP / TQ gains were 42.17HP 50.52TQ
Max HP/TQ gains were 48.67HP 54.07TQ ..

so why pay extra $$$ for KOOKS if you can get the same results from cheaper headers like TSP?? is the "American Made" headers really all that worth the extra $$$?? if you think so and don't mind answering why?

I don't want to start a war here guys I just want to know what your guys opinion on this.

I bought Kooks because you never know what you get from China. Some of it is good...some of it is bad and the bad you often don't find out about until later.....aka Chinese drywall etc.

I wish you could buy more stuff that was made in the USA but it's tough to do these days...but when I can...I do.

Depends on you. I went Stainless Works, 2 years now and love them. ARH,Kooks are also good.
