Ditch your tired, restrictive, inefficient stock exhaust manifold and let your engine breathe freely with performance headers. JBA Cat4ward Headers unlock your motor's power potential for unrestricted, white-knuckle performance gains.
The Achilles heel for engine performance is the exhaust. With JBA Headers, you get a boost of up to 10-25 tire-turning horses out of your motor. The steel tubing is mandrel-bent with extra-large exhaust ports and a leak-free, laser-cut 3/8" thick flange for fast exhaust flow.
You also get JBA's patented Firecone merge collector (depends on model), which quickly moves spent gasses out through your tailpipe. JBA exhaust headers let your engine breath easier, giving you more power, torque and throttle response.
All mounting hardware is included for a do-it-yourself install that doesn't void your factory warranty. 4 finishes to choose from. Of course, your JBA Headers come with a 1-year warranty.

Driver's side header sucks to put on. Still having issues. Couldn't get it to fit in down exhaust correctly. Then took it off and connected it to the down pipe first then the block. Now it leaks at the block. Will have to disconnect again entirely then get a new gasket install on block and have the down pipe altered to fit header. But should only cost 60 bucks so not that big of a deal when I have the time to take it in

Pain in the butt to put in took all day and lots of tools needed. Very tight spots to tighten bolts. Cutting and welding of exhaust pipe and cat to finish job. Not for beginner mechanic.

unlike my previous ones, fitment difficult, thin flanges, cracked welds, lasted 2 years(other brand pacesetter) these jba (2 months since install)were a breeze to install, very stout flanges, appear to be very well built, fitment was perfect.

installation was easier than i thought it would be. i simply removed the catalytic converters and the existing exhaust manifolds. i was not required to lift the engine or remove anything additional to make it fit. i should probably establish that the whole process took me about 9 hours to complete, however.

Headers are always a great add on for performance boost, and these headers are awesome. There a little tight when it comes to putting them in, and tightening the nuts that hold them to the head. It helps if you remove a couple forward studs to give you more room to slip them in place. Then reinstall the studs and nuts. If you want to run both cats and o2 sensors then you need to shorten the stock mid pipe and cut and weld it together. If you run the JBA mid pipe then you need o2 simulators.

Overall these headers are a nice quality and appearance. The installation process is definately not the easiest. However, the headers did come with a manufacturers defect that entailed a weld that was not ground down properly around the flange and prevented a tight seal to the y-pipe. I'm going to call JBA and request a replacement set. I'm not looking forward to the removal and install process again but I think it'll be worth it. The headers did provide a nice feel of mid range power.

The fast shipping time was a major plus. I installed the headers on my 99 Dodge Durango 5.9 V8. The parts were easily slid into place but access to the mounting bolts were very very tight and tightening them up was no easy task. The stainless steel finish was dull and had very little shine and the welds to the mounting plate did not look to be as nice as some other brands I had looked at. Having many modifications to my suv the new headers added more power to the mid to upper rpm range.
