    Video Review & Installation

    These Kooks 1 3/4-Inch Long Tube Headers are going to be for those '09 to '18 5.7 Liter Ram owners looking to step it up when it comes to power and sound out of their truck with a set of high quality headers. These will come in right around the $1,100 mark, but it's just going to come with the headers themselves right out of the box, so if you are interested in this set, you will have to pair up a Kooks mid pipe to complete the package.As for install, you'll be looking at a solid three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter to get these on your truck and will most likely take you a day in the garage while also testing your toolbox. Now, headers are one of those mods that can really make a difference when it comes to performance and sound out of your HEMI. And this option by Kooks will be a great choice when it comes to both of those because of the top notch construction and the overall design. Long tube headers are going to promote scarvaging [SP], making a noticeable difference in top-end power with the truck owner running a more mild setup when it comes to their supporting mods. Now, that's going to end up creating better top-end gas flow and improved oxygen intake, improving your overall performance.If you are running a more heavily modified, an ACE setup or even an F5 or forced induction application, a 1 7/8-inch runner might benefit your truck a little bit more when it comes to squeezing out more horsepower. That's not to say you can't run a smaller primary like this one, but that's just something to keep in mind when you are looking at long-term horsepower goals. Now, with all that better airflow also comes sound benefits and this setup is going to create a very aggressive and throaty tone out of your HEMI or really any other exhaust that you match up with it. And that's really something that you can't beat out of a set of long tube headers.Now, getting into the overall specifics in the build here, these will have a very high quality build that you can count on. The headers are made of a full 304 stainless steel, so you don't have to worry about rust or corrosion because these are going to be very resistant to that. The piping will also be mandrel bent for better airflow and better delivery which is going to help out when it comes to those performance gains. Now, this is going to have a 3/8-inch laser cut flange right up at the top for an OEM fit when it comes to putting these on your truck, and the primaries will come down into a 3-inch diameter outlet. These will also feature scarvaging spikes which will direct the air out of the primary tubing to the center of the collector for a more streamlined flow, again, optimizing your performance. In addition to the headers themselves, Kooks also includes all the installation hardware down to the gaskets and the O2 extensions, making sure that you are all set when it comes to install.And this set of headers, again, is going to run you about $1,100, making this one of the more expensive options when it comes to long tube headers. However, you're getting what you paid for in a high quality set like this. And you can definitely tell that this is perfected down to the detail and that's part of Kooks' process. These are going to have that mandrel bent tubing [inaudible 00:02:55] all over and not to mention the scarvaging spikes that I talked about earlier. Those are usually not offered with some less expensive choices, so if you are looking for a set of headers that takes everything detail and optimizes their performance with that, this is going to be a great setup.Again, I would like to note that right out of the box, this is only going to include the headers themselves. So expect the price to jump a little bit when you do add in a Kooks mid pipe. Nonetheless, if you are looking for a jump in power and an aggressive and throaty sound out of your HEMI, then these Kooks 1 3/4-Inch Long Tube Headers are something that you definitely need to check out. And you can always find them right here at
