    i think they are teh best header for the money, and not sure what u mean, but if u are asking do u need equal or unequal to match your pipe, it wont matter. go with the equals.

    I think i have to get unequal because my h pipe is a little longer on one side then the other side so that would mean i need unqual instead of eual right?

    i have bbk equal lengths on my car, they came on the car so i cant really compare them to anything. my cousin drove it and could feel the difference over his stock 5.0 with a catback system, though.

    really happy with the sound and performance with a similar setup to you, im running the headers, offroad h-pipe and 2 chamber flowmasters. you can come hear it if you want even :nice:

    i would check the for sales on corral, i see quite afew of them for sale over there.

    My buddy just bought a set of the ceramic ones, they are very sweet. He didnt put them on yet, but they look nice. the equal lengths are supposed to be harder to install, but they say u get like 3-5 more hp out of them. I would get the long tubes too if i was you or plan on adding some heads or some major power down the road.
    oh, and always check the classifieds to save yourself some cash.

    i dont have the chrome ones, i have the ceramic i guess they are. they also came on the car when i bought it, only thing i put on was the 2 chambers.

    just plan on everything being a pita to install and getting pist off. that way theres no disapointments.
