yeah but would would be a rwhp and rwtq different from Mac to Kooks?
Depends on your application, but I'm guessing not a whole lot. But people spend a good chunk of money on stuff that probably doesn't net them a lot more HP, but is just a better quality product. Think of throttle bodies/plenums. An Accufab TB/Plenum probably doesnt gain a lot more hp than a PP TB/Plenum, but people spend a lot of money to have an Accufab rather than a PP, just because it's a better quality unit. Not exactly the same thing with headers, but a lot of things factor into the quality of a header. The fit to the head, the fit to the midpipe, the quality of the material, the clearance for the trans/clutch, ground clearance, etc. and Kooks is probably top notch in every category
Plus the OP wants 3" collectors and MAC doesn't carry those.
