    Default jba shorties

    Stainless or titanium is there a difference in the life of the jba headers? Also has anyone used autoanything they have the headers pretty cheap makes me skeptical. Im planning on getting a set soon and probably the y pipe too. Hoping to cure a little need for speed.

    Cheaper at AJUSA... one of our fine sponsors.

    I've had stainless ones (from AJUSA) for about three years now, no problems. They turn brownish, but that doesn't bother me as long as they aren't rusting. I have the Y pipe as well, wouldn't buy that part again because the fitment is slightly off. I had to get creative to seal the part where it meets the driver side cat pipe.

    Sweet ill probably go that route then. Recommend any gaskets I heard the ones that come with the headers are garbage. I still want the y because I just cant see the stock y giving good flow looks too restrictive

    if strength and weight were a concern, i'd go with titanium.
    if under-hood temps and visual appearance were a concern, i'd rock the ceramic.
    if rust was my only concern, i'd stick with stainless.
    if money was a concern, i wouldn't bother unless i had to replace a faulty oem header, at which time i would replace both with stainless.

    You want the Percy's Seal-4-Good gaskets for the headers and the Remflex #8015 gaskets for the collectors. You will also need to pick up 6 40mm long bolts for the collector flanges.

    What Remmy said as far as the gaskets, if you go with the Y pipe you'll need a pair of donut gaskets for that as well. I used Toyota gaskets because I didn't have time to shop around for a cheaper gasket.

    Titanium ones aren't any lighter, just prettier.

    i found that autoanything was cheaper than ajusa when i compared. i suspect ajusa will match a legit competitor.

    i solicited a quote directly from this site, in the form of a pm, to ajusa and got the same price they were quoting everybody else on their web site

    I wouldn't get the intake kit, leave the stock one in place. I guess it depends which year your truck is, for my year AJUSA was cheaper.
