    I was thinking about going with these headers on my 04 mach 1 and was wondering if anyone had any opinions on them, good or bad...

    Most things I've heard about the BBK Long-Tubes are negative. From what I've read, the primaries don't port match with the exhaust ports coming off of the heads. The BBKs have oval ports while the heads on Mach 1s have rectangular exhaust ports, so they aren't doing much good. I'm sure they've probably fixed the problem by now, but BBK is still a 'cheaper' brand overall. The best headers you could possibly buy with the best power gain are some Kooks Long-Tubes. The price is around $900, but you get what you pay for... might as well save up and do it right the first time. :nice:

    I just added the BBK long tubes and they added a lot of power.

    I prefer cheap over shiny....almost identical power between brands.

    BBK does have a lower quality, but depends on what you want.

    Kooks are probably best money can buy, depends what u want quality wise.

    Power wise, I haven't seen anyone dyno more with just another brand of header.

    My friend just bought a set of MAC long tubes and their quality was really good, not KOOKs quality, but for the best "cheap" set I would og with them.
