oh thanks for the advice, ive always thought they were pretty good since they were always around at the shops.
Well, it's one of those things where you get what you pay for. Cheap price = cheap quality. There's a good header on ebay that's called a Hytech replica. Even though its a replica it's dyno proven the best bang for the buck. The genuine Hytech header is very expensive $1200 range (but has been proven to be one of the industry leaders).


a.k.a. crabs!
yeah...i wish it was blue too. But not alot of people have the green teg. so im happy i have something different. My name is kind of misleading huh?
lol im gonna have to go ahead and disagree on that one. hell i think green may even be one of the most common along with silver
