LT Headers--Stainless Work VS BRP Hotrods

Ok, i think ive decided that i want to do an LSx swap on my 92 Sonoma GT, since im procharging the 4.3 in my Blazer ZR2 im gonna do the LS swap on the GT instead of doing a turbo 4.3. Probably just do a mild 5.3 with bolt ons and maybe an LSA S/C down the road.

Im looking at long tube swap headers and i like the 1 7/8 Stainless Works headers, and if you order them from Current Performance they will give you the mount kit for free, but at 1200 bucks its still pricey.

The BRP Hotrods are 1 3/4 and ceramic coated for 700, but then you need their mount kit and crossmember which runs another 500 so basically spending the same amount.

Im looking for feedback from people that have used both and how well each fit and if you were to do it again would you use them again or go another route?

The BRP 1 7/8 isn't an option for me because i want all tubes inside the frame and with those there is one tube outside.

Re: LT Headers--Stainless Work VS BRP Hotrods

I just went to the Stainless works on my 1st gen.

They fit in the frame great, but with a 4l60e I had to trim the starter cover off the bell housing.
for the brp, I dunno...

As far as I am aware, you have to use a custom crossmember for both though... and the brp piece looks terrible for the price, Gforce is what I went with and it's SOLID.

In terms of value.... I would say again says the stainless works, stainless is no maintenance and will last a lifetime.
Ceramic coating from my understanding will only last about 3-4 years before it started to come off, requiring recoating.

You were the greatest Mom any child could have asked for, I love you.

Yeah I don't like the brp crossmember or how it mounts and to be honest am leaning towards the SW with CP mounts and the GeForce crossmember is a very nice piece for its price. Plus I like that it bolts into the stock location.
