Default Header opinions

I'm going to go with some LT's. I have to stay catted due to Illinois laws. I have been looking at either Kooks, or American Racing. Both seem to have metallic cats, which I want.

Next spring I will be installing an S/C. Either E-force or Whipple. That's a whole different decision right now though. I probably will not seek boost levels to where a twin screw will boast any advantages. It will be for street use more so than drag strip, although it will be there from time to time.

So anyhow, any help or opinion form real world users of either of those headers would be great. Thanks for all the info I've gathered from you all thus far. Good group here for sure.

I'm in the same boat as you. Wish I could help but I'm unsure. Both companies make quality product so I'm sure you'll be happy either way.


BTW, the whipple is a twin screw

Yea, I know. It's a toss up between a TS and a TVS.

That's what I've kinda come up with on the header end. Either of the two wouldn't be a bad choice.

I figured you knew that but i brought it up just in case. I'massuming you're looking into metallic cats in order to do it right the first time fir you future blower. Roots blowers are very popular on our stangs and are a viable option to look into. Either way please, if you're installing the headers, please let me know why you went with whichever company you eventual choone and why because I've been debating this for months.

American Racing Headers all the way!! I only use them, all components 100% made in U.S.A. of 304SS, only TRUE long tube, everybody else is 3/4 length. Workmanship is top notch!

Hooker's FTW.....That's what I am running and they are awesome.....perfect fitment.....

Quick video of my car with the full 3'' exhaust with turndowns mounted under the driver and passenger seats.....

Car doesn't look like this anymore but it is for the exhaust note to give you an idea of what it sounds like......Good luck with your decision bro...

Kooks! Install wasn't too bad, and the fitment and quality is great. I love them and the sound is incredible with the pypebombs.
