    Re: Gibson headers and exhaust?

    Look for soemthing stainless steel so they wont rust, and if not stainless alteast get coated. Are you looking more for peformance or sound?

    I agree. I have them for already 7 months now. I think, they should spread the word about it.

    Re: Gibson headers and exhaust?

    I've got a gibson dual exhaust on my truck and I love it, the only thing I would suggest is to get some ceramic paint and give it a couple coats before installing it.. it'll help with the rusting later down the road

    Re: Gibson headers and exhaust?

    i just put some stainless steel gibson headers 2 weeks ago and theyr awesome...but lik a couple of the guyz stated ceramic coated are better since they dont heat up as much as the chrome and stainless steel...theyr pricey but worth it

    Re: Gibson headers and exhaust?

    I have installed over 100 Gibson exhaust systems and about 20 sets of headers. Never had a problem or complaint. The sound is nice, not loud at all, just deep and smooth. Adding the headers makes the tone change to a little sharper, a little louder, but even better.

    The last one I did was a Hemi Ram. Log headers, 3" cat-back and we revamped the merge where the L and R banks come together with a merge pipe from Flowmaster. This truck picked up 2.5 mpg on the highway following this mod and it sounds great.



    2000 GMC extended cab. Cheap Pioneer HU, cheaper speakers in the doors, stock speakers in the rear! Time for an install!

    1980 Volvo 244. Nice Pioneer Premier HU, not much else to mention.

    Bought from- MechMan, 528hz, exige, Papermaker, j3bus2k3, basebalz13, revrider1, FRITO, dacheatham, 350zspl

    Re: Gibson headers and exhaust?

    Gibson makes nice stuff but the exhausts arent loud enough IMO. I have pace setter headers on my truck. The were cheap and they fit so im not complaining. If they arent coated deffinately put some paint on them

    Re: Gibson headers and exhaust?

    Is this the Gibson Supertruck and what kind of truck is it?

    That exhaust sounds best on Dodges. Don't know about Chevies, probably OK but I know it sounded like CRAP on the Fords I've heard running it. Gibson is not known for setting off car alarms but if you don't need to do that the quality of the sound, workmanship of the systems, and performance bumps are always good. I had a Dynomax Superturbo 13 inch on my 4.7 Dakota. Made it sound like a muted NASCAR truck on hard throttle but very deep at idle and light throttle.

    and nobody cares what your sub is.

    Re: Gibson headers and exhaust?

    Magnaflow makes a great exhaust.

    I think there are better performance parts you can buy instead of headers... don;t get me wrong, they're good but I would get an intake and programmer first.
