          Don’t buy from American Muscle

          Did not come with hardware to install headers and were pretty banged up and scratched, very poor packaging. Had to buy heat wrap to hide scratches.

          A little disappointed

          Passenger side went in just fine you must raise the motor up about 4 to 5 inches and remove the passenger side motor mount! Drivers side had a problem thought taking the steering shaft apart would be the hard part but they don't tell you anywhere that the header won't fit with a canton road race 7qt oil pan had to severely modify the header to fit! Finish on the headers were very nice!

          Mac ceramic longtubes

          I installed my Mac ceramic longtubes during a head swap so the install was very easy. I still had to lift up the motor about 2 inches to get the passenger side in but my only major issue I had was the steering shaft it took some elbow grease to install it back but nothing impossible. I give this product a five star rating really like them and am has fast shipping and great customer service.

          Great price, amazing sound!

          Got these for my turbocharged 5.0, it has a lot of heat under the hood so I went with the ceramic base for extra protection and to help keep the undercarriage cooler too for better performance and let's not forget about the deep rumble you get, can't be any happier
