More $ doesn't always mean quality. I'm hoping for the best with these, but don't want to be the guinea pig

That may be true, but there wouldnít be a thread started like this if op was thinking of buying supersprints. Thatís why you pay more $ lol.

I might try these. I have an exhaust leak so I have to pull everything apart anyway and replace the gaskets. I’m cool with throwing away $300 on these even if they don’t work. I probably won’t buy until around Black Friday tho, and won’t be able to install until maybe February, but will update if/when I get around to it.

I actually have SS V1 Stepped Headers. Lol. A friend of mine was thinking about eBay headers and I stumbled upon these. I had no clue they even existed. I would mostly likely be doing the install with him so I was curious if anyone actually had them. What the fit and finish is like.

Love their Exhaust with resonators in section 1 sound and quality is as good if not better than the 1,500 Exhausts. Would not hesitate to buy and install their headers! Their research and development is in California not sure where all manufacturing is done.

Curious to see how it goes! From what I've seen, Megan has a reputation for Chinese-made products that do the job. At face value they definitely sound like a better alternative to eBay

Looking at these again, they are awfully short before the collector, similar to the Euro ones. Is it not better to have the collector farther down? From a sound perspective I assume that would also make a big difference. One of the best setups I've heard was a longer design iirc.

I was just going to make a thread about these headers. They actually look quite nice.

The installed photos on the megan site however don't show much.
