well basically im doing a custume side exhaust with 2 magnaflow cats and maganaflow muffflers.....the guy at my exhaust place said that he would personnally rather get the BBK than anything else........what i dont get is why the chrome headers are cheaper than the ceramic coated ones?!?!?! also my stangs a DD and theres alot of snow in the winter up here so i figure chrome doesn't rust...right?!?!?!?

ceramic is more because it is is also a coating on the header and it helps to keep engin temps down. yes crome helps to keeep metal from rusting due to the nickel content, however it can still carode. and ceramic coating also helps to prevent rust.
and i agry wit hur macanic i perfur BBK products to mac jmo, however mac is the only company that makes l/t header sfor out cars. and l/t's give the best praformance.

really if i were to do it all over again i would have put LTs on instead of shorties...i have the bbk chrome shorties...and i mean they do a lil difference but not too much
