Default Headers: Get what you pay for?

Hey, everybody, was hoping to get a little input on some header options. I have always been a firm believer in you get what you pay for... so with that said, is it worth paying an extra $400-$500 for say a set of kooks LTHs http://moesperformance.com/index.php...oducts_id=1569($1,130 - 2000* coating).

Compared to say pacesetter's LTHs http://moesperformance.com/index.php...oducts_id=8979 ($759.00 with the 2000* coating). The pacesetters also come with the y-pipe.

What is it that makes the kooks LTHs apparently so much better? Design? Durability? Materials?

Another option I have been considering is just buying a set of headers raw and having them coated by a local shop that does ceramic heat coating.

One last bit of info... I was planning on going catless.

Any insight or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I'm in agreement that you get what you pay for. As for a recomendation - I'm at a loss. I like what I've seen in the Pacesetter's and if in the market for headers they'd be my choice. Good luck in choosing a brand for your truck.
