    aem air intake headers soon to follow
    just started driving a 4 banger again after a couple of yrs driving a duramax only , and i am trying to eek out all the power i can from my 2.7. I have looked at threads about headers and everone mentions doug thorley and LC Engineering, does anyone have any input on northwest offroad's headers ? they look like a quality product although they seem abit pricey.

    3RZ power-plant,turbo-charged, ported& polished head,built lower end,along with forged internals, inter-cooler, aluminum flywheel, stage three clutch, R-161 6speed transmission, optima battery,ceramic coated exhaust system, limited slip diff,short-throw shifter, custom roll-cage
    I know from experience that the LC header is , in my opinion, ALOT better than the Thorley header...I actually opted (to my dismay) to get the Thorley short tube header kit. I was, to say the least SORELY disappointed with it, the "ceramic coating" baked off, and the welding on the collector broke...I went to LC Engineering and got the 3RZ pro street header kit(prior to getting my new motor)...I can't say enough good about it. It was certainly worth the money I put out for it.
