You have to add in the cost of the mid-pipes...which will bring the price back up to $800. JBA headers are good. Probably one of the better headers out there. The install and performance gains will be similar to all of the other name-brand headers. But for that price I would look elsewhere. Are you deadset on JBA or were you just looking around and came across them?

If you are looking for the best quality headers then ARH and Kooks are it. Stainless Works is also one of the better quality headers. But the price will be north of $900 for these. Other brands that are good quality are Stainless Power, TSP, BBK, OBX and several other brands. To be fair, all brands have shown great durability and longevity. So you don't really need to dish out a G to get good headers unless you want to. Just make sure you factor in the price of catted/uncatted connections. Some brands include the catted connections. Others you will have to buy them separately. They can cost about an extra $200. And you might wanna buy O2 extensions as well. Those will run you about $40.

You will need a custom tune for LT headers so you will need to buy a handheld tuner as well as a custom email tune. Or you can get a dyno tune to squeeze out the most hp. Used tuners can be found for about $150-$300. Custom tunes can be around $135-$400 with free updates for future mods. Dyno tunes can run around $400-$600.

If you're looking for the least expensive route then you have to shop around and decide what you are willing to spend on what. You can probably find everything you're looking for and spend less than $1300 total. I bought my headers, tuner, and custom tune and it all cost me $1,000 total. I did the install myself and that saved me some money.
