s197 v6 long tube headers

I just recently started looking into my exhaust again (already have borla x-pipe and mufflers) and am having trouble finding long tube headers for v6s. AM didnt have anything which sucks because thats my go-to site, bought everything my from nitrous to my light covers from these guys. I'll admit i haven't done enough research to buy yet but can anyone help me out with finding the best long tube headers? I am also looking to either get performance cats or just get rid of em all together. Advice on that would be great too. I live in michigan and as far as ive heard there isnt much restrictions on cats. My dads jeep doesnt have em. But i could be wrong
thanks guys

try summit racing or lethal performance they may have something. that is my only complaint towards AM is that they dont carry longtube headers for my era cobra.

Longtubes for the 4.0 are sort of limited. Pretty much just Pacesetters, MAC's, and Kook's. The Pacesetters are supposed to be crappy quality, the MAC's are sort of hard to come by, and the Kook's are expensive (but highest quality, probably). There's a company called OBX that sells some on eBay. They're sort of well-known in the import scene from what I've heard. I'm still considering long tubes for the future, but I have a lot of other stuff to do first. I've heard some that sound really good, but that was with some extensive engine modification and a certain exhaust setup. Otherwise, they seem to get sort of raspy on our cars.
