Headers 1 3/4 or 1 7/8 Brand

I want to order long tube headers with cats soon, been waiting for months now, Question is what size and who's got good quality and fit for the least amount of money? I also need pipes back to my Borla free flows at the axle.

Go 1 7/8s and get yourself some Kooks, American Racing, or Dynatechs. All are pretty much equal quality. I would go for what I can get the best deal on.

As prime said above those are all AWSOME Brands. Most would say go with a 1 7/8 as these LS3 engines thrive off of room to breath. If you plan to mod your car with some internal mods for sure go with 1 7/8 if you dont plan on doing heavy mods it really doesnt matter.

I have driven cars with 1 3/4 and 1 7/8 and from my butt dyno I couldnt tell a difference. Unless you are going Forced induction or adding a Cam something that really needs the extra breathing room it really doesnt matter that much to be honest.

Some people have gone with 1 3/4 due to finding a better $$$$$ deal on 1 3/4 then I would say go with 3/4 other wise go with 1 7/8 for down the road purposed.



I went with 1 7/8 American Racing Headers and love them to pieces.

another good brand header is Stainless works

not to deter from site sponsors, but your going to find the best deal with Kooks from marylandspeed.com... be sure to call them so you can get their "special" discounted price! but they do not have an x-pipe that goes all the way to your axle-back exhaust.

i have 1-7/8" American Racing, catted, with x-pipe and i'm very satisfied with the performance gain and sound! this is probably the most complete kit for you since you already have an axle-back. don't freak out about the price compared to others, they include an x-pipe which no other header kit does. pricing for these is strict, so it will be the same almost everywhere. research it a bit and find someone to give you free shipping. i ordered mine from lmperformance.com for $100 off and free shipping.

just be sure to do a lot of research before buying them! there are a couple headers made for our cars that are not stainless steel, and/or made in china. although they might be cheap, or knock offs of a quality brand, you never know how long they will last!

for anything made from stainless steel, your not going to get a better quality product than an American made one

We use Kooks 1 7/8" longtubes with catted midpipes on our BMR 2010 Camaro shop car and the fit and finish is awesome and the car makes good power with them. You can't go wrong using Kooks.
