What other route were you planning on going? For the price they are the most inexpensive headers on the market

No telling when they will be back in stock. So my question to you is, do you want to wait a couple of months or do you want headers now?

OBX doesn't sponsor here but TSP does. I'd wait it out. Or go kooks is my opinion.

Wait it out unless they have 1 7/8" in stock which is doubtful.

Stainless Power is an outstanding set of headers for the money. You will not be disappointed if you do decide to go that route.

Kooks is by far the best header for our camaros. You get what you pay for.

For the most part nothing takes 2 weeks anymore. Personally, I have to have a really good reason to wait 2 weeks for anything these days. I've gotten so used to "now" that I really have to justify waiting 2 weeks. If price is an issue and you're not driving the car anyway, might as well wait. If not, I'd look elsewhere.

What is a few weeks wait considering the amount of time you will own the car.

Waiting sucks but I wouldn't trade my 2" TSP headers for anything else. I have been totally happy with them.

Your not going to be disappointed if you go with anything. Any LT are going to wake your car up so much that you'll be satisfied regardless. I just got some stainless works headers and i love them.

Not completely true. There are some LT headers on the market that I would never even attempt to put on my car.


DISCLAIMER : THIS IS NOT A HEADER DEBATE. JUST STATING THE OBVIOUS.

Is there a header dyno comparison thread anywhere? I tried to search but couldnt find anything.


Im talking about the same sort of comparo that Jennety did with the CAI's for our cars. Same car, same conditions, just different manufacturer of header?


TSP is a great company and there headers for our cars from what I've seen, heard and read are top notch! And you definitely can't beat that price! $469 for brand new name brand headers? I'll take it.


For anyone who feels like your "american made" headers is better (see Kooks, ARH, etc) they ALL buy there piping from China. That doesnt mean they are better.

But then again, thats why I asked for a dyno comparo..
