Opinions are wanted

So far, I have divorced dual w/ MAC mufflers, 8.8 Rear end w/ t-lok & 3.73 gears, and a Diablo Predator tuner. Do you guys think it's worth it to get Longtube headers exhaust set up or just save my money?

Re: Opinions are wanted

It's really up to you. They really aren't necessary unless your stockers are cracked, or you want to replace them for a deeper tone and a slight increase in hp (maybe 1-2). Again, this is another mod full of mixed opinions. I personally don't think they are worth it when considering the amount of time and money that is necessary. A v6 is going to sound high pitched above 2k regardless of what kind of exhaust you're running.

I would probably go with the CAI as outlawfrog said, and maybe look into some suspension mods - springs, shocks/struts or subframe connectors - or save up for something else.

Re: Opinions are wanted

long tubes on your v6 will net you about 5rwhp and move your power band up a little bit, basically not worth the hassle/money on your near stock engine. If it was a built 4.2 stroker sure though.
