hookers are unanimous then?

last night on the corner of... errr.... nevermind. Anyways, I got my tax refund stuff of $430 yesterday so today I am going to order headers. I have about $170 +/- to spend because to get new 2.5" pipes and good turbo mufflers cost $260. I have pretty much decided on hooker comps from summit for about $150ish. Anyone else have any suggestions? I need to get the copper gaskets too right? Thanks all

Re: hookers are unanimous then?

I've built mostly hot rods and drag cars. Hookers have always been my favorite. I figure that you get what you pay for. when you buy the 99 dollar headers, you get 99 dollar headers. When you buy hookers, you pay more, but the quality is a lot better. Just my opinion. On my car, I have Hooker headers and I love them. On my truck, I thought I'd save some bucks and get the el cheapo headers. BIG MISTAKE. I hate them. They are a pain.

went down to the exhaust shop and he thinks there is a place locally (90 miles away) that sold him a pai of Hooker Super Comps for $200. He is gonna call later and find out. Other wise I think I will get Hooker Comps from Summit or Jegs

Get yor Hooker's from Jeg's! I bought some from Summit, and had some problems (leaking, etc.) Well, I called Summit about them, they had their song & dance that I did something to them. Well, I got ahold of Hooker, told them about the problem I was having. Hooker told me they sell the headers to Summit unwelded, they then assemble them. The guy at hooker told me they probably warped them assembling them. They will not give a warrenty on them, as they are Summits responsibility, to warrenty them. If you want some really good headers for the money, buy Doug Thorleys. Just my .02 cents worth!

I wanna got petter later but I need pipes too so I got cheaper headers then am getting good pipes then I figure when these rust I can spend a little more $$ for some throley's or coated headers
