My performance expectations are not to be a professional drag racer. This car will never be supercharged or turbocharged Nor would I ever have nitrous. Most long tube headers costs around 1000 to 1300 dollars. I can get a good set of quality shorty headers for 350.

I plan to make this a daily driver. If I could find a long tube headers there affordable I would do it. Long tube headers requires that you buy the kit or cobble your stock exhaust make it work. The reason I like shorty style headers is the eas of insulation and the fact to maintain all your stock emissions.

I'm looking for suggestion what is a good fit for shorty style headers

Actually after looking on the internet the BBK headers don't like that badly price for long tubes... I think I will do long tubes. Thank you for your suggestion

BBK longtubes is what I'm running. I was impressed with what I got for the price I paid.

I did my own install on my longtubes... helped a friend w his Shorty headers... both on the lift... both took same amount of time...

And he saw zero gains and little to no sound difference...

If you refuse to buy used (that's a sin in my book lol) then buy obx from eBay... cheap and I've not read anything bad on fitment or quality...

I spent $750 on pypes lts an o/rx, the seat of the pants dyno says it was well worth it. Wish I would have had the patience to wait on out of stock o/rh tho. I can't stand the x pipe.

Re: last project of summer

This is just my 2 cents but if your main use for you car will be as a daily driver and you are not trying to get every last bit of HP out of your engine. Rather then droping close to a grand on a set of long tubes and a catted shorty X (you said you what to keep stock emmissons) I would just go with a good HI Flow catted X pipe something like BBKs witch use 2 3/4 pipe instead of 2 1/2 to your stock exh manifolds the biggest restrictsion is the stock cats not the manifolds
