MAC longtube headers.

I found a set if Mac longtube headers for cheap and I was wondering if there was any other h pipe I could use besides the prochamber.

pypes will work but will need to be modded a little bit from what I understand. mac also sells an x-pipe through brenspeed thats a lot cheaper than the prochamber if you want to go in that direction.

Theoretically any shorty h pipe should work.. I had good luck with pypes. Even though my car is a different year and not shorty. I say go with pypes. Or check on Mac's website for a shorty h

I'm waiting on the guy to respond but I will hopefully have them shortly. But ya they are they chrome ones and they are already ceramic coated. What did you mean by mid length? Are they shorter than some other longtubes or what?

As far as getting an x pipe the sound will be incredibly loud and raspy.. If I were you I would spend the money and get the prochamber.. It sounds great.

+1^ on that, I don't know what an X pipe sounds like on a 3 valve, but I'm not a huge fan of the ones that I've heard in person, like on my buddies mach 1. I have a prochamber and just got in a pypes h pipe last week that I'm going to put in this weekend and see how the sounds changes. Do what you think is best and don't rely on youtube videos for accurate sounds lol.

They will sound different for 2v, 3v, 4v obviously. But you can make 3v scream though.
