Default best bang for the buck (headers) brand,site?

looks as if I may pass on the headers posted in a previous thread can anyone point me in the right direction.

Lightning looks to have the best price.

Thanks as always

If you go woth the lightning, Make sure you get the stainless version and not the powdercoat version or you will be replaceing them real soon.

You just can't beat a good set of CMI's. They will last you through several sets of engine if you buy them new.

i always thought these Dana Torque Flows looked like a pretty good deal. I have posted several threads asking about these over the years and they have all gotten positive comments.
