What are hands-down the best headers out for the 3800. also, what are the pros and cons of each brand? I hear ZZP are best, but are w-body store brand just as good for a much cheaper price? I know this subject is beat but it would help a lot to get new opinions, thanks

As Grimsin said, most of the headers are knock offs of the same design. Choose what you want based on the quality you want. That being said, headers are often a royal PITA to install and this is especially true of the cheaper sets due to poor quality control.

If money is no big deal, finding a set of TOG's (going to have to get used) or SLP's are your best bet.

ZZP are good, but don't come with a downpipe and cost 600 (at that point getting SLP's or tog's is better idea)

Wbody store's design is good...and the cheaper ones are good to just have more problems with install.
