I will let you know after I get it all aligned and welded up this summer. We'll meet up at PBIR or something.

KLO, I was thinking...

When my driver side collector rubs on the frame, it only does it on start up. It does not do it under acceleration. Think I would be fine just wedging a thin metal plate in between the two so it doesn't rattle any more? I got under the car, and it isn't moving that much to make a noticeable clanking sound.

Don't do that. Currently, mine is resting against the frame, even with the engine not running. I can feel the engine SO much more because of this. Just take it back to the shop and have them take it off and dent the collector a little. They shouldn't charge you much, if anything, since they didn't do it during the install. Wedging something in there is just a band-aid. I would dent it personally. I can't wait to have it all fixed, the rubbing against the frame drives me nuts while driving.

If you could go back, would you still go for the BB LT's for ~$250. Or would you go for something else, like some MACs at $450?

I really don't know. Part of me says go with MAC's, however the cost of LT's plus mid pipe would have been out of the question.

I'm happy with what I have. On top of it, boost brothers told me they would sell me a pair of the corrected headers for dirt cheap when they come out for making the write up. I think I would say 51% stick with boost brothers 49% go with MAC. Cost is pretty much the biggest factor right now.

WOW,thats pretty awesome of them to sell you a set dirt cheap.....considering the first set does not fit correctly and they have a set of "corrected headers" in production.What a sweet deal!!

Lol that was sarcasm on *****'s part.

Here is how I look at it. If you are going to have a shop install the headers, whether they are BB's or anything else, I say you're saving money by going with BB's. Now in my case, I installed them myself, and in two weeks I'm have a shop get them perfect and weld everything, I should have just had them installed in the first place. The headers are quality made but fit like horse s h i t. My setup will turn out really really nice in the end though, I'm adding 6 stainless V-Bands and two 6" full stainless flex couplers to isolate virations and torque from the motor from the rest of the exhaust. The shop is uninstalling the headers, denting them both where needed. Reinstalling, aligning the system front to back and welding it all up with stainless steel wire in the welder, which is hard to find because it's expensive, all for $450 which is a great price. I will be taking pics and starting a new thread once it's done.
