New Mids

I installed a MAC Cold Air Intake todsy. That wasn't too bad. The hardest part was the intake filter. I think it took me an hour for the install.

I also had a custom cat back installed. X-Pipe 2.5in pipes and pair of Flowmaster Super 10 mufflers. The car sounds very wicked. next will be a pair of shorty headers and a tune.

Wouldn't he have to get shorties cause the mid pipe is for the stock manifold? Or he would have to do so fabrication right? I have tuned shorties and i was thinking bout goin lt but my x pipe is for shorties and really don't wana cut it. Am i close on any of this? Im just asking. Don't wana jack the thread sorry

Re: New Mids

U R RIGHT... u gotta match the mid with the header (in this application).

shorty header=long tube mid

long tube header=short tube mid

....and its that simple. regardless if itsa 6 or 8
