Sorry if this has been discussed, didn't find anything in my search.

I am looking at getting a set of LT's, and the consensus appears to be that Nismo are the best, but unavailable, that leaves Stillen and Doug Thorley. I am wondering if there are any significant advantages or disadvantages between the two that I should consider before buying?

For background, I live in northern Canada, and put up with 6-8months of winter and heavily salted roads, so stainless steel is preferred. I am not a drag racer, just typical truck usage, looking for primarily for low to mid gains. I bought in on the Berk B-Pipe group buy, and understand and am comfortable with having to buy Uprev to get the most out of headers. The truck is 08 Crew 4x4 short box, only other mod is AEM intake. Not looking for increased noise, though aware it will be an unfortunate by product.

I have read lots of fast trucks run Stillen, and there are certainly lots of TT's running Thorley, I am interested in the reasoning behind why everyone purchased the make they did.

TIA

If your up there in the North i would definitely suggest gong with the SS DTLT's. Your going to need a better quality material to hold up on those salted road's. :)

You have to extend the o2's to fit the Stillens, not w/ the DTs.

Thanks. THis is the kind of feedback I am looking for. For those that have extended the O2 sensors, is it simply a matter of splicing in a bit more wire, or is there more to it?

just splicing... also I have seen one set DTs and their port matching is round and may even be larger than the gasket thus creating a leak. Now this was just one set of headers I saw a picture of.

Even my Stillens back in th day I had to clean up weld splatter inside primaries and open up for better gasket matching.

If it were me I'd order them uncoated and send them to a quality coating place after review.

just so you know I have the DT and I live in NY state lots of salt on the road and my DTs are rusting. There is a thread on here that talks about the rust problem.

Just so you guys know, the Thorleys come with a warrenty against coroding and stuff. Check your paperwork.

My DTs have done me very well. I didnt install them myself because i was the test dummy for Thorley when they decided to do it. I went in and talked to my buddy and the head of R&D then got the ball rolling.

Mine still look brand new and they have over 25k miles on them. 10k of that has been in the neasty northwest rain.
