Kartboy? NAPA?

I really need new hangers and everywhere I have looked I found this same question, but no answer. When I buy new hangers, is there any huge difference between the extra long Kartboys and the Napa's? I could get napa's tomorrow but would have to wait for the Karts to be shipped, and my clanking is driving me bonkers!Cry!. thanx

Kartboy's would probably just be stiffer.... Get the NAPA's. Hell my old car I needed shorter hangers so I put hose clamps around them and tightened until it was high enough

i know this is kinda old but i just had Napa's extended hangers on my Cobb TB and first off, i had to drill the holes a bit bigger cause they come in 12mm..and second. the tip was still touching my bumper. i just got my Kartboy ones and now it gives a good half inch gap from tip to bumper.

I have the kartboys and they're plenty stiff compared to stock. I bought all 4 and I could not for the life of me get the center one on. Ended up using the stock one in the center. This is on an aftermarket exhaust.

I don't know if they even still make them but I run the paranoid fabrications hangers and they held the tip of my old helix exhaust 1/2" below the bumper and they are incredibly stiff it feels like they are solid even though I know they are poly
