Default Who makes the best headers

Repowering the boat, looking for a consensus from the guys whom have had different headers, and whom they think builds the best quality for a 900hp blower motor. I've always had CMI, but I know there is also Stelling, Hardin, Eddie, KE, and so on. Thanks Jeff

Arrow Re: Who makes the best headers

The expanded radius section of the "Cool Collar" concentrates a greater amount of cooling water at the initial entry point and forms a reservoir effect, forcing cooling water into all jacketed areas, eliminating hot spots. Well engineered overall I think.

I've had stellings with gaffrig mufflers for the last 2 years , their expensive an the best, also less chance water gettin in your engines, thats my 2 cents.

IF you want performance KE is the best. The KE does not have much in the looks department. Stainless Marine is also Top Quality. As well as, CMI and Stellings.

I have had both stellings and cmi. I think the Stellings are a better header.I do not like the manifolds style,but they are cheaper.

Talking Re: Who makes the best headers

My 2 cents: Stellings all the way, and if your gonna run the big tube, we found 29hp better on dyno runs, then any other out there. Plus Randy at Stellings is great, he knows his **** and takes care of the customer very well. Kinda like Nor-tech.
