Great Header for the Price!

"Fits in engine compartment better than stock, looks better, sounds better. No dyno, so I don't know what it does for performance but I would assume it is much better than the sharply bent stock four-two-one setup. Excellent price point compared to other similar products.
Stickers on product warn that paint is for shipping only. High temp engine paint works nicely, just need to scrape or burn the other stuff off.
Only problem was the slight difference in reach under the firewall. It doesn't exactly line up with the stock exhaust, it is about 2" too short. If you are getting a different cat or exhaust system it should not be a problem.
Overall, very satisfied with this header."
Pros: Price, sound, appearance, fit.
Cons: Not long enough to reach stock exhaust (about 2")

Worth the money

"I installed these headers, a magnaflow high flow cat and 2 1/2" cherry bomb on my '91 Toyota Pickup and it's worth the money. Easy to install approx. hour and a half to install complete exaust system. Noticed big improvement in mpg in the first tank of gas and still am 2 months later and a nice deep sound for a 4cyl not like a cheap tin can sound. I recommend you fine sand the black headers and spray some 1500 degree header paint yourself since the factory paint started flaking within 10 miles of driving. other then that they're great!"
Pros: Improved mpg, bolder deeper sound, nicer look under the hood, easy to install
Cons: Cheap heat paint, noticed discoloration and flaking after 10 miles.

"I got this for my 87 N/A Toyota Supra. It's definitely doing what it's suppose to. Not to bad as far as the install itself goes, only have to move the intake tube from the filter to get it in. I did find that the plate that is used for the engine to header mating surface was not machined exactly to spec. I had to grind the upper corner of the end closest to the front of the engine because there is another part of the engine there which will stop it from going on. Once that was done it went in very easy. One other problem is the two to one down pipe. There isn't any form of fastening it together and kept slipping out so I welded it together. Now it's running and sounding awesome but had to mod it to get it in. Just another thought..... there isn't any flexible portion on the downpipe so once installed you have a solid exhaust from front to back. My plan is to eliminate the cat and weld a flexible section with two flanges to replace it so that there is some sort of motion dampening to offset engine movement. All in all this is not for the beginer but if you can manage it's one mean mod for the inline 6."
Pros: Mostly easy to install, and good performance and sound.
Cons: Design
