Some of their prices are more, some are less. You'd be surprised what calling them and asking for a price match does.

Look at the BBK LTs (which happens to be what this thread is about if you didn't see) and you can get them for $390 shipped. I'd much rather get from a sponsor here than someone on eBay for the same price.

And also, where do you see $60 less? I see a C&L Plenum for $160 on Brenspeed and a TrickFlow plenum for $99 so where's the comparison? It's two different companies.

Cant find it now but i remember summit selling them for 100$ cause iwas gonna get one.

They always had the trickflow too and the C&L, but i guess they dropped C&L now.

I have BBK's, they are ok, fitment is good, quality is pretty good, but if you ever plan on doing tranny work yourself, get the MAC, you odnt have to remove the pass header to take out the trans

yea, and i heard ghostrider's car with open longtubes and i think its is a sound that is deserving of praise. sounded like sex with them open. but if you are looking for fitment and not rusting and money isnt that much of a problem, then gokook's, american racing, or slp longtubes. they are stainless and you can get the kooks and a/r coated. dont know about slp but they are all reputable companies and get good results.

MAC FTW, I have BBK LTs and love them but to replace the clutch the passenger side header does have to come off, pain in the azz. I would get MAC and if you cant find ceramic coated ones for a good price buy some ceramic header paint froman auto store and just spray them yourself.

That car looks familiar, i think hes on this site. wwmost i think is his username.

http://www.mustangforums.com/showpro...sp?memid=14154


iirc he had a couple diff. muffler setups with those longtubes.
Personally i think LMs sound bad with no cats but thats just me. That price is decent for headers and BBK is a good brand. I have actually bought BBK lts from brenspeed and they are excellent to deal with. They ship stuff super fast.
