    I have a set! They sound pretty mean when they're open thats all I can say! Some people say that they aren't the best quality, I didn't have any problems with them and I don't need a super sweet header for a near stock 305.

    My Flowtechs sucked. I got the coated version, and they rusted through in 4 years....I didn't get to drive the truck much though....

    On the other hand, the Hookers I had in a car, that didn't get driven much either, lasted 10 years with me, and they are still on the car now, with no problems 3 years later....

    My .02 cents....

    Re: Flowtech...UPDATE

    decided to go with hedman hedders due to cost and ive heard more good about hedman than flowtech..hedmans are only 120 for the set...also going to buy some dynomax bullet race mufflers, 2.5" in/out 12" long 4" around..i think its gonna be kinda loud with side exits before the rear wheels...

    Re: Flowtech...UPDATE

    Kind of loud! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif My brothers has flowtech headers, with cherry bomb mufflers bolted right to the headers, and they exit right below the doors. To say its kind of loud is an understatement. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
