kooks headers vs c8 corvette stock headers

Here are multiple YouTube Videos of the Kooks Headers for the C8 Corvette that compare how the C8 performs with changing out the stock headers and adding Kooks Headers as well as Kooks Green Cats.

Also, if you are installing Kooks Headers yourself on your Corvette C8 you need a O2 Sensor Socket Wrench as well.

We will keep this post updated with any new C8 Corvette Kooks Headers videos as well. If you want to add anything to this post let us know in our Sponsors Page contact form or shoot us a message on Instagram or Twitter.

Per Complete Street Performance C8 Corvette Kooks Headers

In this video we install a set of Kooks 1-7/8″ headers on the C8 Corvette with the factory cats. Then we put it on the dyno to realize the gains, only for the big surprise to be that we went the opposite way. We think we identified the reason why and hope Kooks will address the issue. If they do, there will be a follow up video! The Complete Street Performance YouTube Channel is dedicated to bringing you humorous but quality car content, mostly specializing in late model Domestic V8s. The work we do is with roughly a century of experience between everyone working at CSP, and the best part is we have fun doing this specialized work.

Today’s episode is a fun one to say the least! Happy to announce we have partnered up with Kooks Headers and Exhaust to install a beautiful set of their new 1 7/8 304 Stainless Headers and Ultra Green High Flow Cats! Of course before installing the cats we had to see how she sounded with open headers! For the record these headers are not off a NASCAR but Kooks does make NASCAR headers and they sure sound like they are!
