Kooks headers

Wondering to those who have installed the Kooks headers if they used any OEM parts for the install instead of the parts included with the Kooks. Thoughts?

also any codes thrown on 2014's? Kooks says no way bro!

Re: Kooks headers

okay well ordered my Kooks headers from black ops this morning so hopefully no response on this issue means no problems reported, as far as using what comes with the headers for install. just want to make it as painless as possible for the shop installing them.

side note: i remember hearing one of my neighbors with a wk1 srt that had only kooks headers on his jeep and thinking that was the best sounding vehicle i've ever heard.

Re: Kooks headers

I'm thinking about getting the Kooks headers and I already have the 2015 Borla ATAK Catback, is anyone else running this combo?

Be interested to know how it performs/sounds compared to just the exhaust. Too loud maybe? 😉

Re: Kooks headers

9 hours install by professional and my headers are on and 100 miles logged without any issues on stock tune. i wouldnt say really that they are louder than stock but its just different sound, deeper and more noticeable when stepping on the right pedal

What's after the looks? Cats?, aftermarket cat-back?

Re: Kooks headers

I was recently rear ended in the jeep and during the repair process I got the insurance company to pay for Kooks long tube headers, green cats, their xpipe, with a borla Stype axle back. I have had the axle back on previously with the Bwoody and didn't tune it, but now with a full exhaust and the bwoody, would I gain any benefits from a tune? I am talking something significant for the price of buying a tuner etc. Let me know your thoughts. Love the rumble, like FirstJeep said its not crazy loud its just a different sound.
