i dont have a problem paying for kooks if they r that much better? I just want to know how they line up against each other. I guess that is what i should have asked.

Yea that is Danny Wong from Sparktecmotorsports. If you go directly thru him instead of ebay you will save some money. I've been sending peeps to him for almost 2 years now so use my name as a reference, tell him I sent ya.

So the Y pipe is only 2.5 or smaller?

correct, the Y pipe is 2.5" But if you talk to Dru or Sean or Chance its not really a liability until you start going forced air and big cams and HP up over 500.

Mine will be there also after I'm done with all of the work and I still have OBX. I'm going Rob style which is not much different for power but IS for mpgs according to Alvin. Also have 3200 Phoenix stall, Transgo HD2 kit, Dorman efans, STG 3 CAI, a light port/polish on the heads and TB and Tune.

Kook's has a ball socket joint, OBX uses a crappy slip joint design for connecting the y-pipe to the header collector. If you want to do it right and still be on the cheap, get the OBX headers, weld a v-band connection to the collector, build your own y-pipe to connect to the v-band on the collector...DONE!

n what do u think is good?
Anything else you buy (other than Pacesetter) is going to be nowhere near the same in cost as the OBX, Kook's is what I have, but them and American Racing are the best. The biggest difference in all of these is OBX basically knocked off the design of the more expensive headers, builds them with cheaper material, with cheaper methods, and that is why they are so much less expensive...

Kook's and American Racing:
- Use higher quality stainless material
- Do not slip flip any joints at weld points, only seam welds
- Use a "back purge" method on seam welds to eliminate oxidation and "holes" in the welds
- At the collector, the welding is a lot nicer, more solid, and there are merge goilets built in to smooth airflows

Although OBX look great on the outside, they do not incorporate any of the above features into their headers...but for the price, I absolutely think they will get the job done...
