Smile Help with headers decision!

Hi, what do you think of Borla headers for my 2015 ZL1? any experiences? Kooks or American Racing arenīt an option. All information is welcome.
Thank you!

Didn't even know they made them! My thoughts from looking at the photo:
1) make sure they are at least 1-7/8" primaries with a 3" collector
2) If you get them, plug that odd bung in the primary tube on each header, and use the further back bung for the front O2 sensor

We love Borla products but not their headers. They are a 1 3/4 primary with a 2.5" collector. Also, I'm pretty sure they have been discontinuing most of them. Generally you want at least a 1 7/8" primary and everyone else is running a 3" collector. I'm guessing you're saying Kooks and ARH are out because of the price? We can make them considerably more affordable with coupon code CAMARO5 at time of check out. Also, check out Stainless Power headers and Texas Speed headers. We have them both on our site and they offer great quality at reasonable price. PM us or give us a call and we'll help you get the best price.
We carry and install all the hottest brands for your Camaro! Get awesome deals on Corsa, Borla, Solo, ARH, SW, Whipple, Kooks, Procharger, Vararam, CAI, Roto-Fab, Texas Speed, ATI, ACS and much more! Call us for your CAMARO5/CAMARO6 Forum discount today! 224-63-JUICE

Um, it says in bold red:

Sorry this product is no longer available and has been discontinued.
