Headers info

I am interested in getting headers for my truck its a 4x4. I was wondering what is best recommended headers for my truck. I was also wondering about installation. I dont really have a garage so im not much of an install guy myself. Wondering about cost of install? Thanks for any help.

Dynatech Supermaxx long tube stainless steel headers are the best in my opinion.

This thread is a little old but I'll ask here first before I start a new one. I have always thought about adding headers but wouldn't that add a lot of heat under the hood. With PCM and other electric parts under there all that heat can't be good or am I wrong ?

I dont know for sure but i wouldnt think that they would get any hotter than the stock exhaust manifolds.

Thanks for reply I've always heard different opinions that exhaust manifolds don't get as hot as headers but each one is different. In time I will end up adding headers was just curious what people at HTC think as all the info I've read in threads has been very helpful.

uncoated headers might put a little more heat under the hood but not enough to cause any kind of issues.
Any of the inexpensive headers that have coating on them is likely to burn off after some time.
Its really a trade off.. low cost a little more heat, more expensive no more heat than stock maybe a little less.
when looking at low cost headers factor in that they do not come with cats so if you need them you will have to add them on, even with cats most likely you will have a MIL from the higher flow and have to do something to correct that.

I heard that OBX does offer their headers with cats so they may be a good comprise between the high and low end of the price range.

You can always go to a auto parts store and get the high temp ceramic spray paint!! I did my headers on my 350 a couple years ago and they still look good although i hav'nt drove it in awile!
