4.0 V6 Headers

Best shorty/long headers in terms of sound, performance, and price?

Long Tube- Best Sound, Most performance, Most expensive
Shorty- Decent Sound(may not notice much because the stock headers flow pretty well) and probably a little performance, but they cost less.

If u buy Long Tubes you will have to redo most if not all of ur exhaust system because it changes the length of everything.

Yeah I'm getting the Ford Racing dual exhaust so what all will need to change from that setup?

If you get long tubes, u need to change ur midpipe to a shorty midpipe.
Headers must much the midpipe.
Like...
BBK LTs have to have a BBK mid and so on.
Shorty headers can use any regular length mid.

If you get longs then depending on which state you are in you might instantly fail smog testing simply because of no cats, if the smog laws are light where you are at then logs would be the best choice... Since I live in Cali they just aren't even an option.

if he got l/t headers then he could just get a shorty catted midpipe and most longtubes will fit with most midpipes it doesnt have to be from the same company. my buddy got bassani longtubes for his gt and bbk shorty midpipe and they fit fine. btw the best v6 longtubes are the kooks, they are around 600, and i would highly suggest getting a shorty catted midpipe because a v6 without cats sounds awful and you most definitely will not pass emissions because you will throw a code for your o2 sensors. plus the FRPP comes with a midpipe which you wouldnt use so if you plan to get longtubes dont get the FRPP because you will waste money on the regular length midpipe (not to mention the fact that the FRPP sucks )

Yea that works... It doesn't work in my state though cause you have to have a CARBA stamp on every part of exhaust before the cats and there are no l/t's that come with it.
