i have had the doug thorleys for like a couple years now and i love them. you will notice big gains in 3rd gear and up. i have the flowmaster and it does sound like bees in a coffe can. but only when my truck is cold. i am looking into the o2 sims because my cel has been on since i put the headers on. and going to upgrade my muffler. been thinking about straight pipes.

In talking with a local shop they were relaying to me that headers will increase the temps under the hood there by wearing out gaskets and parts. Thoughts on that? I thought it was supposed to be the other way around.

Compared to the factory iron log headers (05-08) that is completely incorrect. Less restriction equals less heat. Compared to the stamped steel and angle headers of the 09+ , they should still be a little cooler. A laser temp gun would really be able to tell you, if someone setup a side by side experiment.
