That is what the information in the opening post is all about. Give it a look.

I'm so glad I came across this post, I was thinking about this subject for the last two days. I was curious as too how much science was involved in headers and what specifically I needed to look for. Thanks Chase !

They do not have merge spikes and they do not include cats or off road pipes. Borla makes great cat and axle backs but you can get a much better bang for your buck with any of the top tier brands when it comes to headers.

Based on what I have seen and heard the past few days, it looks like the Pfadt Tri-Ys are going to be a serious bang for your buck upgrade.

My inbox and some of the phone calls we have had the past few days say you aren't the only one. All indications are that they are going to be a hit.

Maybe? Does Kooks offer stepped headers for the corvette? That's really the only way I can think of being able to do a direct comparison as the Pfadt Camaro headers aren't out yet.
