I have just bought i set of high-tek headers and high flow cat, and was wondering what other people's oppinions are on them compared to brands such as pacemaker, HM Headers, etc..
Thanks
David

Does it matter now? Little late once you've bought em to start doing your research...
You can do a search - been covered before.

The problem of course with telling someone to do a search, is that when someone else tries to do a search, they're more likely to find threads that just tell them to do a search..

i was asking for oppinions because ive bought these ones 2nd hand, and i plan on building another motor with a decent cam, and headwork done, and was wondering if i should stick with these or weither i should purchase a set of HMs or pacemakers.
That is my reason for asking.
Thanks to all who replied./
David

Excellent. Got better results over the JMM ones I had in my car.

I know the bloke who owns the company and where his shop is. He prides himself on his work and quality, and nothing short of excellent work leaves his shop. And he has tested all the leading brands back to back against his stuff, and he says the differences are marginal on either side of the line. Had some interesting stories on pacemaker comps vs his stuff too.

So really, you can't go wrong.
