Default Borla Headers?

Has anyone had any experience with them? I am looking for the next addition to the Daytona, and am leaning towards headers. Was curious about the Borla headers because the truck has the Borla exhaust. I put a set of JBA headers on the old Dakota RT and was happy with them. All input is appreciated.

I think Borla makes better exhausts than JBA. JBA claims their exhaust are all stainless, but if they're using T-409 then it's junk. Borla uses T-304 on everything. If you already have the Borla cat-back then I'd say go with the Borla headers.

Id go for dynatech headers their long headers which is better for gains. I dont know what the borlas look like but if their long headers as well then that'll be a good addition lol

If Borla has headers for your year/model then i'd def go with them, I have their cat back system too and i'd get Borla headers if they made them for mine; as it is I'm gonna be going with the Dynatech header-Ypipe kit and get some cut outs installed too.

Here's a video of some cut outs. Who makes these and how much are they? It looks like they need to tucked up under the truck a little better.

Also, here is a complete Dynatech long tube Header set on ebay. Free shipping. There about $1500 at Summit.

check this thread out. I'd been looking at the QTP but after seeing what fred put up I might go with the DMHs myself.

Yeah, JBA seems all right, but between JBA and Dynatech I would go for Dynatech hands down. I was searching Borla's site and as far as I know they do not make headers for the 5.7L Hemi.

Dynnatech system is what I'm saving up for also. I've been looking into them for a few months and found they are mor expensive but, they are port matched for our heads and come with bolts, gaskets,02 sensor extentions, highflow y-pipe, high flow cats and are prety simple to install.
