Bassani Mid Lengths.

If you're going to do headers, you may as well do long tubes to get the full benefits instead of shorties. You'll lose some ground clearance with long tubes though, which is why I said the Bassani mids. They give you almost all the benefit of long tubes but without the ground clearance loss.

However, if you are planning to keep your current mid pipe, you'll need to go shorties...

But, best would be long tubes...better would be the mids....meh would be the shorties.

Re: Header Help

headers are not worth it unless you go full length... dyno chart after chart shows less then 10 engine hp for shorties... for like 8 hours worth of work...

Re: Header Help

if your putting headers on it might be a wise idea to get a tubular K while your there... in the other thread we are talking about your 1/4 mile times... how the hell or what the hell is done to your car... if they pulled the motor you would THINK they would put headers on... hell even if there are heads and cams it seems the exhaust manifolds would be a HUGE bottleneck... but i guess not everyone knows what they are doing!!
