Quality is not in question. How would these compare to a brand name header in sound and power?

I hope pricing is better than the vette headers.

Out of curiosity Chase - these numbers are after tuning the car correct?

They look awesome.

Wonder how many threads will pop up...

"is there a difference"

"thinking about changing"

And the ole faithful...

"what's the best header"...

Don't forget:

Do I need a tune with them
Will they void my warranty
will they attach to my stock catback
Are the coated
Do I use the stock gaskets
Are they as good as my OBX's
Will they make my penis bigger
Do they work with a long throw shifter

So were looking at 10-15 rear wheel HP and TQ over a "Name Brand" header? Who did this test? If this is true, I may be changing headers soon.

I believe the test was done by Pfadt, but could be wrong.

I know that JDP and Vengeance were both involved in the third party testing but I am not sure if that chart is from one of them or someone else.

All of the dyno charts Pfadt has posted for the Corvette headers were done by various third party sources.

Ah gotcha - I mean Pfadt's corvette headers speak for themselves so I wasn't doubting the numbers. But nice to know they use 3rd party dynos.
