Header opinion

Recommended Posts

Now I'm not one to put cheap parts on my car, but I'm always looking for the best bang for the buck. I've googled this subject and didn't come up with much in terms of actual evidence. OBX headers. From ebay. Seen a set of long tubes + catted x pipe or h pipe for a little of 600 shipped. I snooped around on some ls forums and seen a decent amount of people running them on their Camaros and g8's. Some were 100% satisfied and said fitment was on point, others had complaints. Couldn't find any mustang owner running them so far. Thoughts on this? Is it worth the risk? I know the common saying of you get what you pay for but many people say these are basically identical to another big brand header just under a different name and a shady Chinese company.

If I'm going through the pain of installing headers they will be long tubes even with the price being a few hundred more.

For a coyote, pony up and get stainless LT's from a reputable manufacturer. 

 

In the case of OBX, the old addage applies.... Fast, Cheap, Reliable.... Pick 2.

 

I've seen them in the Mazda world... the flanges are shit, the welds are shit, most guys that bought them ended up ponying up for MSDS (only other vendor for headers on that car) down the line.

For 2015 Coyotes, it's either Kooks, Stainless Works, Stainless Power(cheaper variant of SW, sold by Beefcake), or ARH. Borla will have theirs out soon hopefully.

I could always go bbk 550 for chrome or 650 for ceramics, I might just wait and save for a higher end set like kooks or sw etc. Had bbk's on my v6 but the extensions or the 02 sensors kept giving me codes so idk if I wana go back to them.

Hmm you say SW but you have kooks? Why is this>>

 

For the amount of money, Stainless Works is a fantastic option.  I got my headers for a screamin' deal.  Otherwise I would have ended up with SW's offering.

Hopefully fallen into the abyss!

 

 

It exploded. Took out most of Milwaukee with it.
