Wanted to make a little install/review thread for the Maximizer Headers. Long story short, been really wanting headers for a long time now. Most headers are around ~$2k new, with the exception of M&M being about $13xx+Shipping. I was hoping to find something in the <$1k range.
After some research, found a header set on Ebay that looked very nice called "Maximizer" which I understand is a spin-off of the OBX headers.
I know, I know..OBX = Cheap chinese junk.
However, after further dwelling into it, lots of LS guys run the Maximizer headers and love them. Sound great, perform great, install with absolutely zero fitment problems, etc. They also have a lifetime warranty, so if anything ever cracks or breaks, I'll get a new set for free.
Since Christmas was around the corner, I put them on my wish list (along with gen 3/4 calipers for my big brake build), and my wife suprised me with pretty much everything I wanted.
In person, the headers look AWESOME. They look to be pretty much an ARH replica. Welds look great, sandblasted finish looks amazing, and they just "feel" like the quality is very nice. Even the 5-1 welds look great on the inside, and all the welds are properly grinded and sanded down.
Here's a quick picture of them. Right now waiting on my o2 harness extension to come in from Casper's Electronics, as well as 3" to 2.5" reducer to hook it up to my factory resonator/exhaust.
Will try and start the install on Saturday morning, and will take some pics along the way.
Can't wait to hear/feel how the car performs with these, and hope everything will go smooth!
