American Racing Headers

I was digging around some G8 boards looking for existing performance goodies for the LS3 and I came across these. Another reason I like these is the company is only a few miles from my house....can you say 'BETA BIOTCH"?

There seemed to be a lot of positive input about them and they appear to be a great quality system. I'm sure we'll see quite a few more products from SEMA and GMPP before our cars roll off the line.

I wish I could goto SEMA. Kooks already has a header and exhaust system out as well.

There should be a strong aftermarket for the 5th Gen. Companies already making products for the G8 should have a little jump on the rest.

I will only buy Kooks or Hooker. I prefer Kooks on late models however if I had to go hooker then I probably would after looking into a few things.

The $1700 is the entire system:headers, high flow cats, and full cat back.

i guess that's not bad...I'm just not used to late-model performance parts prices I'm used to regular-ole-SBC/BBC prices. For my last car I paid $1700 for a complete 6-71 setup w/ carbs.

But you gotta pay-to-play

I've heard alot of good things about American Racing headers.
Since they have a G8 system ready, they're a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from having a Camaro system ready.
