Question 2010 camaro headers

American racing headers seems like the best ones out there but their to damn expensive! I'm looking for long tube headers, optional cats. 304 stainless steel. I'm trying to find ones that will give the same amount of output sound and performance! I just can't seem to find any thing that less than 1200 dollars. Help please!!

We can set you up with a set of Stainless Works headers and high flow cats that will meet all of those requirement.

Don't be fooled as far as performance, all the long tube headers make about the same power. Any slight dyno differences can be for a number of reasons. Also quality from any of the top brands is going to be about the same too.
ARH, Kooks, and Stainless Works were all on my list when I looked for headers, I ended up with Kooks.

I'm going to forward a PM I received.

Our short system that connects to the factory cat back may be affordable for you. Contact Juiced and see what they can do for you.

TSP headers are going to be the best bang for the buck if you are on a budget.

Generally headers of the same size will fall within about 5-7 HP of one another with the difference being in things that a premium header gives you like ported flanges, merge spikes, and merge collectors. ARH makes a good header. If you decide to look at another brand, give us a call..we sell many brands, and have helped a lot of people here. Threads like this are tough to make a decision on because honestly, most people are gonna recommend what they have on their car, or sell a lot of.

If your on a budget a non-mechanical bolt on can save you alot on money.

I recommend either TSP or OBX....you just can't lose with them being half the cost.

If you want to spend the big bucks,go with any of the other name brands.

You won't be able to feel any difference in power while driving with any of them.The power is also barely noticable on the Dyno.

Even the imported ones would probably last as long as you own the car or the life expectancy of the car.... an average of 12 years.

Just my 2 cts....

If you don't feel or see a difference with long tube headers something is seriously wrong.

Of course you will feel a difference when adding headers.....

compared to exhaust logs..

I was indicating between "Brands" of headers

Just remember you get what you pay for.

I would recommend a good quality name brand such as ARH or Kooks. They will last longer then the car will and if you have any problems, they will warranty the headers.

By all means stay away from OBX. I had them on my 4th gen Z28. Royal pieces of crap. After two years had to have them replaced. Talk about a expansive lesson to learn which is why on this one I'm going with ARH to start with.

I am tracking now. You definitely will not be able to feel a difference between the name brand headers. It is one of those situations where you can't make a bad decision.

just some info, been doing a lot of research on dshaft failures and it has become evident with sc and mods the temps along dshaft{tunnel} can hit 500f...melting bonded shafts...so if buying headers, go with a coated header, it can lower your temps as much as 50%...

Have you seen our headers?

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=109873

There are a lot of vendors on here like JW, Ivan, Maryland Speed....that would be more than happy to get a set on the way to you.

If you have any tech questions I'm always happy to help!

Thumbs up OBX

Go with OBX. I'm glad I did. Don't listen to the haterz. Their 5th gen headers are amazing. Check out my install thread:

I just bought the Texas Speed headers without cats (also getting ready to install a Maggie S/C).
I took them to a local quality coating shop. They ceramic coated them, inside and out, the fit was perfect and they are made with the merge spikes. I installed them myself, using jack stands, took about 3 hours taking my time. I can immediately feel a difference. Its definitely a whole lot louder!!!! Yes, they are made overseas and many people don't like that. How long will they hold up? I don't know but they seem to be pretty good quality. Total costs for headers, no-cat pipes, coating headers & pipes, O2 extenders and shipping $762. For that price (half of the "name brands") yep, I'll chance it. Heck, if the welds break in few years or something else fails I can buy another set and still come out even. I didn't go with the most popular. I'm probably going to tick off a few sponsors and for that I apologize. But, my hat is off to TSP for selling a good product at a good price and not deceiving any one on what they've got.

I wasn't going to say anything but what I stated above...
But I must agree here.The OBX Headers and Hi-Flows I installed 2 weeks ago really are that nice.

They now have a one piece merge collector(not like some of the old pics here on Camaro5) and the welds are all tig through out.

There is a slight step on the bottom where the pipes meet the flange,but the exhaust port has a flat floor so it really does not matter much.

Flame if you want.....but I also have purchased Roto Fab,RX extreme,Corsa,ForgeLine,Hawk,DBA and all kinds of other "American stuff".

I also sent in my lifetime warranty Card for my OBX....they have been around for years and I don't forsee them going anywhere soon.

You can't beat them for $600 bucks with Hi-Flows.Probably the easiest set of headers I have ever installed.They fit PERFECT.

I remember back in the day beating the crap out of painted steel Blackjack Headers to get them to fit an Old Nova.
They lasted 6 years till I tore one off bottoming out on a speed bump.If they were not so rusted they probably would have lasted another 6..

The issue with Borla is you can't run cats. They have a one peice header that goes all the way to the catback. Most of our customers want catted systems.
