I feel same way. Techs at brenspeed told me to go with pypes LT's. Said the fitment and quality are great and you dont have to spend double the price with Kooks.

To each his own, but thats what I am ordering.

WHat part of the header is rubbing? New motor mounts or a nicely placed dent could cure the ailment.

Oh Okay. Alot of guys have done the motor mounts at the same time. Prevents the motor from moving side to side and letting the header contact the inside of the frame rail or moving and hitting the steering rack.

You already have to unbolt the motor from the mounts so there is no extra labor.

Good luck!
