Ok guys

I know this question has been asked many times before, but forum searches come up with weird results.
so here it goes. I recently installed true duel 2 1\2 exhaust with magnoflow 12256's using stock manifolds for now. But yesterday I got a little bonus money and would like to buy a set of headers. nothing fancy(that'll come later)
has to be less than $200. I've found these three options.

1.http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-G9003/

2.http://www.summitracing.com/parts/BIG-11106FLT/

3.http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HOK-2456HKR/

My main concern is fitment. I'm looking for YOUR opinion on which pair fit the best. I can't modify anything so I'd prefer as close to a straight bolt on as possible.

Please chime in with some advise this will be my first set of headers.

Thnx
J

Whatever set you decide on there will be a hundred different opinions on which is best for what you want from them. Choice #1 is in stock and comes with everything you might need-depending on what is on your car
Choice #2 is out of stock but something like it could be shipped instead
Choice #3 doesn't come with the reducers that you'll need so you'll have to buy a pair of them.
Also you might have to take it to a muffler shop to have the pipes on your car matched up to the headers and you'll want to buy a better set of exhaust gaskets for them. How easy will it be to change your plugs after they are installed might be another issue. Sometimes it's the little things that add up

I have Flowtech block huggers and they fit nice and are easier to change plugs on than exhaust manifolds. Mine came with reducers but the muffler shop didn't put them on as they would contact the starter nose, and instead flared the pipe to 2 1/2" and welded the flange on. The reason I chose block huggers was that when I work on the car I don't have header tubes in my way as my other hotrods have longtubes and they constantly get in my way when I work on them. Just my $.02, but whatever you decide just make sure you're happy with it cause in the end it's your car and you'll be the one working on it. By the way I picked up my headers from Advance Auto Parts for around $100. Good luck:thumbsup:
