I put one on my Z06, fits perfectly. It is very loud though when the NPP is open and the throttle is at 100%, otherwise sounds just like stock. Ed

Man I'm sorry about your injury. eBay parts are OK these days but you may need to make some adjustments for a good fit.

To me some dyno numbers would go a long way. It doesnt make sense to me to put them on unless they make more power/tq. Its nice to see a pair of headers that are priced so low. hopefully they make some good power and we can all get a set

I have the headers but have hesitated to put them on because of the (more than probable) necessity to get a tune for them, and then having to change it all back when the car needs to be smogged. The x-pipe can be changed back to stock in less then 1 1/2 hours,which I am willing to do. Ed

From what i can piece together from the interwebs they are pretty much a KOOKS knock off. made from 304 Stainless, and pretty sweet sounding. the fit and finish has been decent, but the xpipes fit has been iffy.. gains unboosted are around 10/15 and boosted can be 20+. none of that is fact. i do not own a pair. BUT mine will be here in a week because at that price there isnt much to lose.

THX~

That is the same reason I bought them over a year ago, virtually nothing to lose.I am 100% satisfied with the x-pipe,I don,t see how it could be any better.I also believe they are a Kooks copy.If you dyno it let us know the results.

Nope...Definitely not KOOKs knock offs. They look to be configured more like the ARH midlength headers.

Here's a photo of my KOOKS which look nothing like the Ebay header photo...
