Texas speed headers

Has anyone had any experience with these headers. They are built with the same specs as the more popular and expensive brands but are half the price. Very interested in a set but would like to hear some feedback.

Thanks.

Highly recommended company, saw many good things when I was looking in to G8 GXP's and GT's. Good customer service. Also strong following in 4th Gen Camaros and Firebirds. I personally am considering them later on for headers for the reasons you listed above. Also helps that they are a couple hundred miles from me, not exactly next door but reachable.

Factory exhaust. Just removed the mufflers and no cats.

Soooo, if you can eliminate the cats, why do people leave them in? I want a supercharger later, hence the exhaust now, but if I dont need cats then great. Their website says mid to late June for next delivery of headers.

Some states require them.

If you are getting a supercharger, then go catless since the blower will destroy the cats. People run cats because they don't like the sound, or they need to pass inspection.

I had no idea. So a supercharger will destroy high flow cats too?

Yep. It melts the material inside them and then it clogs the exhaust. Just search for melted cats and you'll see the pictures.

I don't know what kind of cats you're running, but I would take those off... Boost + Cats=No Bueno
