Headers

I am thinking about buying new headers and a catted h or x pipe. I found a guy who is selling brand new Mac 1 5/8 shorties with catted h pipe. I'm just wondering if this would be a good set up. Any advise or suggestions would be great.

Long tubes are better, but on a close to stock motor you will only see a minimal difference.

That setup will work just fine.

Very true. I went shorties because I scored my brand new summit brands for 30$ shipped. I just couldn't pass that up. But eventualy I want long tubes.

I've said it before, next time I do headers I will do equal length shorties.. Similar flow to LT's and I won't need a new H..

Yes! But it's that balance of time x $$ + PITA = bang for buck IMO. Then toss in your build x intended uses = choice lol

No math it hurts my brain jaja. I get you on that, so kinda sorta all in all it comes down to "balance of time x $$ + PITA = bang for buck IMO". And personal preference? As in to how you want the process to go

Exactly, I have a very specific build plan. It's evolving but the base is still the same.
Iron headed 351w w/ forged internals(maybe a blower down the line). Brands up in the air right now, possibly a switch to aluminum heads, if I do I'll plan on Trick Flow for top end. Still a ways off from starting build..

Sorry about the thread jack lol but ya, there are those options for headers out there based on budget and intended uses. Want my combo on the mild side so equal lengths will be fine if I stay true to going N/A

Nice, gonna be a monster. What's the difference between regular and aluminum heads? Yes yes besides the material jaja. Ah but if you do get a blower wouldn't it be better with LT's? Or would it all revolve around the same, equal length being N/A to blown?
