Some of the cheaper headers have much thinner exhaust manifold mounts. The thinner ones are more prone to warping after repeated heating/cooling cycles, and this leads to exhaust leaks. 1/4" and larger flanges are pretty commonly used & recommended.

Also, I think all (?) of Gibson's exhaust headers are ceramic coated. Depending on what off-brand you are looking at, they could be bare metal.

for one let me tell you something dont waste your money! i put them on my truck two years ago and i didnt notice one single change in the truck! i bought the gibson raw stainless ones and the first winter they were beautiful and the second which was this year we had allot of snow so allot of salt was put down and they are covered in surface rust! i take excellent care of my truck and wash it down as much as possible in the winter and all the time now in the summer months and it didnt help. when i got my sct from mike he said it was good that i did the headers and y-pipe mod cuz he can tune the truck more with them on. the sct made a huge difference over my superchip but i wouldnt spend the 600 again on the headers.

I did my 99 V10, JBA out of CA somewhere, made them with the EGR tube connection.

However, I would go with the tuner first. I bought the Superchips Tuner from Autoanything, worked great for economy, towing and high performance settings. It takes about 5 or 7 minutes to reprogram it. It also changes tranny settings if you have the automatic. Also changes speed limiter :-).

Just noting if you have a truck with EGR and you install one of our tunes we can turn off the egr , truck will run normal and headers will work out fine..
