Just my 2 cents check out summitracing.com I personally would not go long tubes just because of the pita. Go shorties you can get a pair of summitracing shortiey $200.00 But there is mixed reviews on these headers. Instalation of these headers is a breeze they bolt right on and will bolt to oem y pipe. They come with or without EGR. Now a good mid pricing header is Gibson shorty start price is about $410.00 but they are built better power is low end torque and mid rpm (highway speed) work best with highflow exhaust, cat. (magnaflow, flowmaster, and gibson has there own highflow exhaust. Again these will bolt right up and will bolt to oem y pipe. I myself am going with the Gibson shorty chrome $410.00. This is just my 2 cents. I myself would not buy used headers you really never know what you are getting. Good luck.
