I have heard the try-y headers are the way to go. I have headman headers and I like them a lot. FYI the 44s are really loud inside while cruising on the freeway. It gets old quick.

tri ys are nice but some have clearence problems I know a lot of people move to ported K code manifolds you get a bump in flow but they have nice thick flanges and dont have any clearance problems
