Are these too good to be true?
 
Does anyone have any experience with/ opinion of these? The price is great. The specs match JBA's Cat4ward Shorties.

Currently for sale on ebay.

Never heard of the brand "Rx" but they appear to be good. SS, 3/8" flange, those are the big ticket items. I'd recommend not using the supplied gaskets and getting quality ones, though. Possibly the hardware too.

they rock for the price. +1 on grade 5 hardware (supplied is super soft and I had to drill out a broken one on account of it), and be sure to test fit your gasket against the spark plug heat shields. they hit on mine and needed trimmed.

Thanks for your input. +1 to you. Were there any issues with the install other than the Gasket?

Come to think of it, mine did seem to fit a little narrow for the y pipe. I had to get a ratchet strap and pull the y pipe together about an eighth of an inch.

^honestly that's fairly typical with any exhaust piece, even name brand.

You get them critters installed yet?

FilthyDog 03-11-2013 01:39 PM

Not yet, hopefully this weekend.

I installed these headers but then had to remove them as part of this process http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=139708

But they did go on easy the first try. I'll be putting them on again this weekend and I'll post picks on the above linked thread.
