Its too bad about them going out of business,i wonder why ? I am sure someone else will come along and build some great 4-2-1's great way to build low end power as well as help keep some of that boost from being lost as much...
It's part of the reason they make more low end power is because you do not loose as much boost,now on a NA motor the power difference wont be there as much,but on a boosted car it's always the way to go..

ted sells the ARH headers just grab those if you want to use his free retunes. I was looking at dynatech but there was a guy who had some steering interferance issues that made me question that. I have a buddie who just ordered ARH if those fit well I will rock them.

I have a feeling kooks, arh, stainless works once they are are you car you not going to car the power is goign to right in line on all of them.

Ted sells just about all the brands of headers on the market, so don't let that limit you on your choice. I bought mine from him along with other mods to upgrade to his 100RWHP package.

But I had to read it a few times to come to that conclusion

What makes you say that? Each set of KOOKS headers is identical to the next and their gains are repeatable each time. I think the variable is the tuner and/or the difference between automatics and standard transmissions aka drivetrain loss.

We sell and install a ton of headers here at JDP and KOOKS headers are hands down some of the nicest headers available; that's why we use them on 90% or more of our builds.

Best regards,

I have heard of some guys spacing the belly pan to provide clearance.
I would probably try the kooks, but I'm reluctant to alter the OEM belly pan.

I'm looking for an option that will not require me to cut the pan as we'll. I have the stainless works chambered exhaust and it sounds great. Wish their headers didn't require belly pan mod
