Was this on a 4wd? I'm always looking for feedback on any type of speed/performance or general engine product. Helps out a lot at work. Were you satisfied with the fit and finish? Most people have been more than happy with the Flowtechs we sell at work.

just bought a set of doug thorley headers for 100.00, they are the 300y so I do have to fit them a little, but have been told they are a very good header.
