If you're on a budget i would get pacesetters. They are good quality and fitment. I have them and they have been good so far.

I have ceramic coated Kooks on my SS and they are the bomb but they did cost $1200! Look at Jet Hot headers for a cost effective header with great quality.

My buddy has pacesetters and I helped him put them on and they fit awesome! He has the armor coated ones too and they have held up awesome for the year he has had them, they aren't rusting or turning blue or anything. And on top of it all he got them for like 500 bucks with the y pipe and all the hardware.
