These look nice and are cheaper than others. They're probably ok.
I sure do miss the days of $150 Hedman Headers.

In my experience, the cheap headers, over time, will have lots of problems. One problem is fit and finish. It gets worse from there.

Initially, they will leak, because cheap headers have thinner (and cheaper metal) flanges. Once these warp, you are stuck with the constant ticking coming from under the hood. There is no way to fix this, as grinding it smooth only makes it thinner, so it fails even quicker, and stacked gaskets quickly blow out.

Cheaper headers use thinner wall tubes (and cheaper metal) which will not 'wear' well over time. A band-aid for this would be a quality hi-temp coating, but it only delays the inevitable due to the cheaper metal its applied to

Theres a reason that stainless steel longtube headers with thick flanges cost what they cost.

These are Stainless steel. I've reached out to TS to gain more info. I don't want to pay for a name when it comes to quality longtubes. I'll update this thread as I gain info.

I did as well. I did not hear back but the price was too good to pass up.

They are still in the trunk of the car waiting for install. Between work and the virus, my schedule has been upside down since I bought them. I am really hoping to get them slapped on soon.

We have very similar mods, MeanCat. I have 2.85, 1050 ID's, LMI, 3.09 w/P4D and PCM/TCM tune by HHP. I will not get a re-tune immediately, so o2 simulators will go on for now. I will report my gains or losses via my butt dyno and data logs.

Can't wait to see how it does, I know it's a tough install.
