artificial HP said:Depends on if you're set on having a name brand lt or not. If you dont care about the brand name....Flowtech....which is the same as Hooker headers. Best part is the price....$350ish ceramic coated, and you dont have to remove them to get to the tranny.

I've heard bad things about Mac's LTs, poor weld quality and such
Roger_4.6_96 said:Are you sure on that about removing the tranny ? I might be getting a pair. I think they have dohc version.
Cant beat Hooker. Ill never buy another header.artificial HP said:Yup hooker headers allow you to remove the tranny without pulling the LTs...and Flowtech is just a renamed Hooker.....both owned by Holley.... and yes they do make a DOHC version.

If you want to spend the big bucks, go with hooker, its the only LT set up that allows you to remove your transmission
other wise you can go with the BBK like I just bought, good fit, excellent finish and sound awesome. I am very happy, I got the catted matching H and maganflow cat back, car sounds awesome
I have MAC HTS's for two years now, they are a little discolored, but no rust and fit great. Although you do have to drop them to do trans/clutch workstangman said:everyones heard bad things about everyone, but few people actually experience it. mac did have some quality problems, but that has been addressed. the weld quality have been fine on every set i've had of them, which is 3 sets to be exact. the hts coated macs are the ones people complain about, not the ceramic coated ones

christiesledd said:MAC's have a problem with their welding, like I said. Some people have complained that the EGR tube has sucked up slag into their engine because of th poor weld quality. This is just what I've heard.
stangman said:there have been VERY few cases where that has happened. the biggest problem with the mac headers are the headers for the 4v's. the 4v already scavenges well, & the mac headers scavenge very well & it can cause some oil blowby. some people mistake that for the weld slag scarring the cylinder walls. i've only seen the weld slag problem documented 1 time, & another time a guy thought it was that, but it ended up not being that at all. mis-information just irritates me when people spread what they 'hear' & most of the time it's not truth. it's someone that doesn't even own the product saying what they heard, from a friend, of a friend, of a friend, of a friends cousin, or of course on the internet from someone else that didn't know what they were talking about.
*note* i'm not flaming christiesledd i'm just irritated cause that happens alot in seemingly every tech thread
