ARH or KOOKS LT's 1 7/8???

Is there really any difference??? A lot of guys around the DFW area are running ARH but it seems a lot of guys on here are running Kooks. Someone please help me, I have to order these things this week.

Thanks,
DH

i think for the most part they are just about the same. when i got headers, i wanted kooks or ARH. called my shop and they had kooks in stock and ready to go. so i went with kooks.

if you want a really good price on kooks, talk to http://www.camaro5.com/forums/member.php?u=12477

Either or we offer ARH and Big Flow exhaust, which for a little less money produce the same results or better
BUT... they are fully polished !

Both are TOP tier products, you will NOT go wrong with either.

I like maryland speed's prices on the kooks honestly...otherwise, it is an even playing field.

Don't forget about "Stainless Works" too!!! They're also just as good as ARH or Kooks!!! Sorry, didn't want to make the decision any more difficult....but I'm just sayin'....

Neither... why not get the same quality 304 stainless in a polished look for less... BFE FTW...

Dynatech 1 7/8" is also 304 stainless. Endorsed by JRE, that was enough for me.

You will find that all the members on here that have bought our headers are happy with them. I also know you wont find anyone with better customer service. If you need anything feel free to send me a PM.

I have called both companies personally because I am on the fence as well. From my understanding and correct me if I am wrong the primaries are slightly longer on the ARH's and the tubes are 18 guage material on the Kooks and the tubes on the ARH's are 16 guage which is a little thicker. I really dont know if there is any difference. Also I beleive the Kook's would be easier to take on and off because of the ball and socket connection. For the short system that I want the Kook's are a little cheaper. Both companies provided excellent customer service. They both look great. I just can't make my mind up.
