noob questions....

I have an 04 3.8 auto with 3.73 FRPP, Sniper tuner and BBK fenderwell CAI. My next mod will be exhaust. Heres my q... Instead of just a bolt on exhaust, I wanted to know if it would be beneficial to get headers to go with a custom dual setup? Less time off the road since its my dd. Also, I have heard of problems with Moto blue pullies, anyone know about this? I want to have these done soon so any info would be appreciated.

Thanks, Jeremy

Re: noob questions....

You won't notice any gains/losses doing headers right now. If you are planning on actually building the engine in the future, you could invest in a good set of longtubes and run a custom exhaust back from that.

For now however, going with a dual setup with your choice of mufflers will be what you want.

Re: noob questions....

shorty headers are near worthless unless you are above 300bhp on the 3.8

Re: noob questions....

I apprecitate the info. However, I also wanted to know about the Motoblue pullies? I have heard that they tend to crack and warp under high heat. I live in Dallas so this may pose a problem. Again, any info would be great.

I've never heard of Motoblue, so I would probably stick with ASP.

Re: noob questions....

I read that a few of the guys on moddedmustang had some problems with them warping and cracking under heat. Thats the only reason I was asking. Here is the link to the motoblue pullies....

Re: noob questions....

Hm...anyone notice any gains with underdrive pullys? Also, how is the install? Easy to do yourself or pay someone to do it?

Re: noob questions....

I did my underdrive pulley install in 20 minutes. This was my 2nd mod ever. I was a noob back then, it took me a half hour to figure out how to put my cold air together.

I felt some power. I would recommend them.
