Interested as well. For $340 including gaskets and o2 extensions thats an incredible deal if they are of at least decent quality.

I have them. GREAT product.
Fit like a glove. Good looking welds. No issues.
Sound great with off road connections and stock cat back.

Will off-road connections from any manufacturer work? Or does speed engineering make their own? If not do you have any other budget friendly recommendations?

Mine came with the off-road connectors. Check and see if they are available as an option.

I'm really liking them.

I also have the Speed Engineering headers. I don't have a before and after dyno but with the headers, CAI, and ported TB I made 436 HP on the dyno. I don't regret buying the headers and I think you will be happy with them.

I don't see an option to add them on like they show for the gaskets and o2 extensions. Perhaps they just automatically come with them and I don't have to ask for them?

Those are some sweet numbers. Hoping to put down similar power.

I have a thread on them when I got/installed. People here don't like us saying we're happy with them cos we didn't pay as much as they did haha

The only issue I had/have with my set is that the flange is not a smooth finish; more like a shot peened rough finish and this causes a bit of leakage with the stock MLS gaskets. Will be switching them out to some graphite like gaskets in the near future .. is anyone else's flange the same finish? Or is mine an isolated incident?

I would not hesitate to get these. They look great and look like they'll fit great. The only thing tho, once you buy the extensions or HF cats you will basically have spent close to the same amount as if you bought headers that already come with extensions. On top of that, you'll have to find a company that sells the slip on style extensions. TSP or OBX would be about the same price and you can avoid the hassle of matching the rest of the exhaust. But either way you can't lose.
