So many problems, where to begin?

" I bought this for my 92 ranger which had a cracked exhaust manifold. I wish so badly I would have just bought the OEM manifold. First of all the headers were too long I had to cut off my old exhaust. Not to big of a deal but then once we had it installed we noticed the EGR valve had the wrong threads / input on it. My OEM EGR would not hook up to the headers, there was no where for the O2 sensor to hook into, On top of all that one of the holes had to be drilled out because there was slag in it(cheap welding). The nut was so close to the tube you could not fit a socket around it and we never really could tighten it down that good.
Save your self ALOT of time and a little money and either find a different header or buy the OEM manifold. "
Pros: not much,
Cons: EGR vavle not correct, to long, bolt hole problems

" Installed on 2005 Dodge Ram 4-door w/Hemi. I had to grind off about 1/2 on the pass side transmission to make right side fit, farthest forward bolt hole is about 1/4" off so couldnt install bolt. I orderd mid tube so i dont know about length b/c i installed fully custom system. "
Pros: sound, looks, performance
Cons: not perfect fit

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.
