Default Headers

I'm thinking about installing some headers in my baby. I was wondering if anyone could point out some good brands, ceramic nonceramic finishes, etc. don't worry about price i don't skimp on my baby.

My father thinks I'm crazy for wanting to do this he says headers belong on V8s I repliy then why do they make them for V6s lol.

I appreciate the help guys.

Default Re: Headers

when i was header shopping JBA had the best quality that i could find with and had the thickest flanges. also, ceramic coated is the way to go.

Sweet looks like i found some titanium ceramic ones from autopartswarehouse.com for $500. Should I expect any fab work or will it be simply take off old put new on?

Also what kind of difference should I expect in the sound?

Mine were easy to install, no fabbing, they just bolt right on. I didn't notice a huge change in sound but others said they notice a difference in sound.

I run JBA headers on my race truck with the SOHC. They are awesome...
