Kooks or Stainless Works LT Headers for 2006 Mustang GT

I am thinking of getting the Kooks or Stainless Works Long tube Headers . I tried to make a poll and I guess I am unable . Not sure why?

Any feedback on the matter would be appreciated. I want the most power I can get, and best quality. I just want to get the best for my money . The Kooks are more and I do not mind paying a little more if I get more power.

I am using the Kooks Long Tube, no problems here. I did have a rattle on the passenger side but was no big deal. JDM did the install.

So does it still rattle? IF not do you know what caused it?

I have the Kooks long tubes on my 5.4L. Man the collectors on these things are wild!! I'm going to see if I have a picture and I'll Pm you if I do!

I have heard good things about the Stainless Works headers. However, I have never actually seen a set so I can't say too much more then that.

I've already made up my mind that I'm going with the Kooks. I just wonder why the tube matrix is different between the passenger side and driver's side. Most other headers I've seen, it is the same on both sides.

If they play, I spray.

Both are very good but I'd go with the Kooks.

It was a loose bolt. No big deal. That was over a year ago. Nothing else since.

I called Tillman Speed, and bought the Kooks LTS, and the stage 8 locking bolts.I even purchased a tune just to compare it to Bama`s tune. Why not, CR the guy who helped me was very helpful and nice. This was refreshing when purchasing from a parts person. Tillman Speed is awesome to deal with.
I also may be purchasing a Procharger if all goes well with them soon. I got the bug today for sure.

I don`t know why , I know they put out more power than the others. Tillman Speed has a deal on them incase you are interested.
