Longtubes!

Couple questions


I've tried to do some research but I'm turning to the experts

I'm looking to get longtube headers and a pro chamber short mid.

Does that brand make a difference? Do all longtubes produce the same sound? Do all pro chambers produce the same sound?

I already have Borla axle backs and I'm looking for a really deep muscle car feel not raspy. Like a classic

First prochambers are only made by MAC, so really there's only one, when it comes to the longtubes there almost all ganna sound the same, extremely minor differences in sound, a pipe is a pipe, the brand differences is quality

Sweet thanks! You sound like you know a better way to get that sound? I'd appreciate any info you've got?

And what do you mean by quality in this case? How well they will hold up over time?

Well what I ment was your ganna get it as close as you can without it being an old classic muscle car haha, you'll be fine man

By quality I mean the finish of the headers and also how well that match up when u install. If money isn't an issue, best headers on the market are kooks and bassani. They cost a pretty penny but are the best. Another good choice would be BBK

Add in some Hot Rod cams or Mutha Thumpers cams and it'll really sound classic!

I'm doing borla stinger axleback with JBA long tube headers with off road x pipe.

Sounded pretty nice on youtubes. I'll see in a month or so.

I only have the stinger axleback for now.


Use YouTube they will be your best friend into finding the sound you want. d:

Is this an expensive addition? I was already stretching it to get higher quality longtube headers but I didn't mind so much. How much would cams cost with install? Or could I do them myself? I'm not very experienced but I don't mind a challenge

Another question I have regarding this quality issue. The pacesetter LTs are about $250 where as the kooks are about 900. Am I missing something here? I don't care about appearance of my headers cause I don't show my car or even car that much about the looks in the engine bay

Kooks are the best headers out there, your paying for the quality, prestige, and the name, pacesetter are great for the low price, I've been looking at the pacesetter for a while

Yeah but what I'm saying is, will the pacesetters show any difference in any way at all? People say they will have the same hp gain and will produce the same sound. I don't see what else I'm looking for? Again in no pro so maybe I'm missing something

I would also add StainlessWorks and AmericanRacing Headers to the list. I've got ARH and they're top notch 304 stainless and they're a true long tube, the kooks are midlength/ 3/4 length.

Also, if you're getting the pacesetters, unless you have them coated they're going to rust up. Also, pacesetter headers are slip fit so they won't fit the prochamber.

My ARH and a video

Oh thank you very much. Yeah I definitely don't want my exhaust to rust out haha. So what will the fitment be like for the arh and a pro chamber shorty? Will that work or will it require mods

If you're set on the prochamber, you'll need the MAC long tubes so that you won't have to do any special retrofitting.
