New JBA Long Tube Stainless Headers for the GTO!

We now have JBA's long tube headers on our website! A stainless setup with cats runs $750, catted is $950. Add coating, and it is another $150. Like all LT's, you must buy JBA's mid pipes to connect the headers to your factory catback.

These headers are are a great mid range option. They are 409 stainless so rusting out is not an issue like mild steel headers. They also have a better seal with their collector design. They are cheaper than Kooks because they are 409 stainless instead of 304. 409 stainless has more iron and will develop slight surface rust, but not rust through. 304 stainless does not rust. The also are not tig welded, and do not have blended primaries, and merge spikes or merge collectors. So in my mind, they are mid range as I said. Someone who does not want Pacesetter, but can't swing Kooks.

We offer great package pricing if you also buy JBA plug wires, or a catback with these headers and mids.

Hmm... I may have to think about these. With that $150 coating, will that help prevent the rusting on the crappier material?

I currently have a full JBA set up on my 04 (shortys, mids and catback). After 5 years of having the coated shorties, they are just now starting to show surface rust.

Thicker is worse, how? Does it have to do with heat dissipation?

what about the installation?
does one have to remove the ps-lines or will the drivers side just slip in like with the arh?

BUT, including catted mids $400.- cheaper than arh IS a good argument//

I am gonna argue with that one Dustin. 304 stainless does not rust. Sometimes rain and road deposits get burned on the exhaust as you drive..which may have iron in them. Those burned on deposits can rust..but they also come off with steel wool.

409 stainless is a lower, more affordable grade of stainless with more iron in it. The higher iron content will allow for surface rust, but it is minor and will not rust through. This is a great compromise for someone who wants to know their headers will last forever. The coating of course will keep them looking good.
