    By on 2/10/2014
    I bought these to replace the stock ones that someone left on when they upgraded the exhaust before I bought the car. They had done a mass air intake and upgraded throttle body as well as a 3 inch exhaust and then left the stock headers on... I just don't get it. Any way, these look outstanding and they make it sound just a little bit meaner as well.

    Image uploaded by Javier H. Great look for your 5.0. Shiny but after a days they will turn kind of rainbow color which is ok unless you want to drop double on some ceramic coated ones. Power wise they do help compared to stock.

    By on 2/12/2014
    GREAT BUY for the money!! Noticed better sound and performance right away! One thing is if you have a 79-84 you will have to do some customizing to make the stock pipes connect to the headers.

    By on 8/23/2014
    Image uploaded by David R. Good fit and nice look. However, I fear the chrome won't last due to the heat of the headers. I'm still happy w/ them though. Also mounting dip stick tube takes a little persuasion as the tubes are bigger then stock and take up the space for the tube mounting point. I bent the tube slightly and set it back one bolt. Now ok

    5 Stars   noticeable difference!
    By on 6/4/2015
    Image uploaded by Chase H. Just installed these headers last night, they fit better than I thought they did. I've head of countless people hitting their steering with aftermarket headers. While installing mine I did notice that they touched the steering, but after all the bolts were snuggled up. There was plenty of room. Don't need to modify these headers at all, direct replacement from those garbage crushed pop can "headers" that come stock. Definitely a very happy customer. Fast shipping and a great product. Only complaint is that they were already showing signs of rust when I pulled them out of the box. I'm not too worried though because I figured the chrome will come off anyway. Oh, and they go great with a set of super 44's.

    4 Stars   4 out 5
    By on 9/7/2014
    My only concern with this product is with the supplied hardware. I don't a way to reattach my oil dipstick tube with the nuts and bolts that came with these headers. Shoot , I just broke my dipstick tube and now I just ordered a new one from this website. I already tried one from my local auto parts store that they said would fit, but it wasn't even close. So, 4 out of 5 stars for now I just hope when my new tube comes that install goes easy .

    Image uploaded by carl g. i buy stuff in bits and pieces to complete a whole project, hoping things fit. these went in like a dream, took about 40 mins with the stage 8 bolts. if you plan a little things will go smooth. i cant speak as to power yet cause in in the middle of an undercarriage overhaul. but looking at the stock, they should be a big improvement .

    By on 12/15/2014
    Our these on a couple weeks ago and they still look great, they have Blued which makes them look even better. I can't really speak for any performace gains as I had a set on the car already but they were rusted, cracked and leaking. There is a bit of rust around the welds already. We'll see how long they hold up

    5 Stars   Perfect !
    By on 7/21/2015
    Just installed these on my 90gt and was a perfect fit. I would suggest buying a better gasket then the one it comes with cause the gaskets is garbage. Secound I would also go back after a hundred miles or so and tighten those new bolts up as they will come loose from everyday driving do it for the first few hundred miles and you will be fine. The last thing is you will not be able to use your dip stick housing with the new bolts they are too short so buy a longer one or just zip tie it like I did works fine.

    3 Stars   Flange not staight
    By on 8/14/2015
    First appearance looked very nice, flange is made of thick stock 3/8", I have some $800 longtubes for another car that arn't that thick. But when I looked down the flange it was not staight. I haven't bolted on yet so don't know for sure if it is going to seal up or not, haven't decided wether to staighten with force or take to a friends who has a large stationary belt sander and make the surface flat.

    Image uploaded by Joseph  A. I purchased these headers about 3 weeks ago & within two hours we were done. It was an average install and you definitely need help. Jack stands are another plus. Decided to remove my egr setup since it was a pain in the ass on the passenger side. So also bought a delete pulley and just recently ordered the egr delete plug. It was all worth it.

    2 Stars   Quality headers, but.....
    By on 8/23/2015
    I bought these headers back in May when my head gaskets went out. The headers are of great quality, but the header bolts are too short and keep loosening and I just had to replace the exhaust manifold gaskets because of a terrible exhaust leak. My advice would be to buy longer header bolts and better header gaskets.
