LT headers brands??

Im looking to order LT headers this week along with a DS T1000. In all honesty I read a ton of reviews on all the brand from Pacesetter, OBX, Headman, Borla, JBA and so on. I honestly don't know what brand to buy with all the reviews. Theres always good and bad reviews on every brand. I was thinking as I was always told by my dad you get what you pay for. I have cars and 2 flowmasters with true duals on my truck but I'm taking it all off so its straight from the headers to a 3" y pipe and then dumped 3/4 the way back. Does anyone have this exact setup with any of the LT headers? If so do you have papers showing how much hp/tq you gained from the LT's with your setup? Just curious if the more expensive or cheaper brands are what I need?

By the way my truck is an 04 ram 1500 4dr 4x4 and going to be putting a 392 short block with all the works. My main goal is to have 600+ RWHP & possibly more later on

Get a Dynatech system then have it professionally coated. For the price, Pacesetter is hard to beat.

I went with pacesetter long tubes and this is what one side looks like after about a year. I contacted them and after a bit of back and forth they said I would have to send them the header at my expense so they can determine if they were going to repair it. Not replace, repair was my only option. After that they stopped responding to my emails.

I've run Pacesetter's coated headers and Y pipe for many years without issues. They are showing their age, probably last another 3 or 4 years. If appearance is a big deal i would look at stainless steel.

I run the Hedman LT's and ORY. Good luck finding the Y pipe it has been discontinued. I was able to call Them directly and ordered one. I think they said there was 1 left when I ordered mine. There is a fitment issue with Pacesetters and the trans. Nothing a sawzall cant fix. Just a tab on the trans. This is not an issue with the Hedman"s. I did have them ceramic coated.

I had forgotten about the trans tab issue. I cut mine when I installed them just to make sure there was some clearance.
