JBA 1 7/8" Long Tubes - $599

I was looking around e-bay for headers for my brother who just purchased his 2012 vert and I found this WAY lower price on JBA Stainless Long Tubes. I paid more for mine when I purchased but I wanted to let everyone know.

I even called JBA and their sales guy said Yep...The price was right and they just lowered all their Long Tubes.

LMPerformance.com has BBK Chrome full length headers with Cats for $675 shipped, $778 Ceramic (currently on sale). With the Cats, this is an even better deal....

The BBK headers you are speaking about are MILD STEEL and will rust eventually. I looked at the BBK but I wanted Stainless and I even found these as a package deal for less that the BBK online.

I think with TSP , Stainless Works and OBX introducing lower priced "overseas" manufactured headers, the competition is realizing they either need to compete or lose business. I just bought OBX 1 7/8 304 SS catted long tubes for $569 shipped.

I disagree; you might want to read some reviews of these overseas headers. I have heard horror stories of their people have to CUT runners and reposition as dimpling would not help. With that said, there have also been those that bolted them right up with no issues.

You can't beat KOOK's, ARH, etc MADE in the USA quality. With THIS said, I have not heard of any REAL fitment issues with any of these products.

They seem high, but putting crappy parts on a nice ride is just wrong.

Did lots of research before I purchased. I've read of issues with Kooks, ARH and other as well. A little competition is a good thing.

What is nice is JBA Headers has been around since 1987. I have had about 10 sets on a bunch of different cars and trucks i have owned. They always fit like a glove and I NEVER had any problems with them.

Do a search and you will find thousands of happy customers. I also like that JBA is the ONLY company that keeps 50 State Legal parts available for all muscle cars and trucks in states that have CARB. "Not just California"

2010-2012 v8 Camaro = 50 State Legal
2010-2011 v6 Camaro = ONLY 50 State Legal headers

I know that costs them a bunch of $$$ so I Thank JBA. I hope they continue
doing the 50 State Legal thing as it's going to get worse in the future for all states.

I found the LT's for about $800 with mid-pipes. Bet they would take less on E-bay!

JBAs are the shizzle as well.

As per issues with Kooks and the others; the difference is that they may have one issue per 10,000 units, whereas the overseas ones have 10 per 1,000.
