Headers Install - Make Your Hauler Haul

Exhausted the possibilities on your Camaro? Maybe it's time for a kooks exhaust on your truck?

The answer, of course, is True--provided you replace "plenty of" with "a distinct lack of." The hatch of your Corvette or fourth-gen Trans Am might be a great place for a few grocery bags or some take-out, but that's about it. (Let's not even mention the trunk space in a GTO.) Try buying all the supplies you need for that woodshed you've been meaning to build in the backyard, and you're gonna come home with little more than a couple cinderblocks and some screws. Surely this comes as no revelation to you, so there's a pretty good chance there sits a GM truck in the driveway to take care of such dirty work while your prized muscle machine gets its beauty sleep in the garage. If this truck happens to be a Chevy or GMC packing an LS engine, you've struck gold--it's ripe for many of the same mods you probably have already done to your muscle car!

Kooks Custom Headers is known hands-down for some of the highest-quality exhaust products in the business, and the company has just entered new territory with its header sets designed for LS-powered trucks and SUVs. A set of these is certain to improve your rig's power, sound, and underhood looks, and the company also sells a variety of Y-pipes to match your application, including for trucks with the high-output 6.0L and 6.2L engines. Follow along as we visit the friendly folks of Heintz Racing outside of Charlotte, North Carolina, a very professional full-service shop specializing in late-model GM/Ford/Chrysler muscle. With an in-house Dynojet and Mooresville Dragway within spitting distance of the shop, these guys practice what they preach day in and day out. You'll be surprised how easy the install is--so easy, in fact, that the Heintz crew was nice enough to return the truck to stock just so we could snap photos (it had been at Kooks for development and prototyping purposes for this set of headers).
