    Never had headers on any truck I’ve owned. Seems like extra ordinary heat off of them. Gibson headers. All the plastic seems brittle under the hood. Anyone switch back? Can the benefits of these headers be that great? Not racing this truck so I was thinking of switching back to stock

    Mine are brittle on my two 98s, one has stock manifolds, the other JBA headers.

    I think it’s pretty common given the age, the smaller diameter looms seem more fragile.
