I don't know. I haven't had any other types of manufacturer's headers on my car, but these held up over a period of 6 years. No track days, btw. I don't like any of the heater box designs by GHL, B&B. They weld the boxes across all the tubes which is a disaster waiting to happen. FabSpeed has new headers out, but they appear to be of same design as the others.
