Back in my day Hedman Headers made about the best. I have no idea if they're in business now but I doubt it.

Just an aside. It takes about 8 hours to install headers on these crates. It's not a job for the weak of heart.

I remember in some instances getting headers to fit involved a lot of prying and even hammering dents into the tubes to get them to fit. Also may require some disassembly under the hood to have a chance to get them to fit.

My last two Challengers had short tubes installed thank heaven.

Good Luck and may the Force be with you.

Kooks are really good. I doubt their is much difference in performance between the top of line brands. Just go with the best deal.

BORLA and TTI are both worth a look. Both are very high quality

For installing them ill be taking it to a shop, its going to have to be tuned anyway, I did my exhaust in my driveway and its wasn't terrible but everything is harder if the car isn't on a lift, thanks for the reply

Thanks for the reply, I'm also looking for the good deals but ill spend the extra money for the quality so I always try and ask around, hopefully there will be some nice holiday sales on parts this year.
