Anyone excited about this? There is a lot of Debate about full length and shorties. I know where my next check is going to! I personally like these. Plus this would complete my exhaust with my BBK catted XPipe and magnaflow comps.

Why waste money on stock shorties?

U do know they provide no gains or anything. They are for either replacements for stocks or for eye candy. Your honestly better off with a intake and tune to get mpg better

I'm sure they give some gains. Not as much as long tubes. And I already have an intake and tune.

BBK says 10-15HP but in reality thats about 5-8HP and thats being kind. But if u want ur engine bay to look cool then yea they are a cheaper buy.

Clearly your not looking for performance gains if your seriously considering shorty headers so this would be perfect for your looking of visual stimulation of the engine bay. To answer your original question. No, your the only one excited about these. Lol. I don't think many want to spend 300 dollars on a item that does the same thing as there factory one does for no extra charge. Your factory manifolds provide same level of performance as this item does.

Certainly, keep us posted on how you like this item.

I'm excited about them. Pssh then again the guy who dumped a Buick worth of money in his paint. I want sound, I will buy a tune and the usual intake and gears. It's a dd for me as well.

Btw, not knocking long tubes, just my dad has them and they are badass. But it's on a show car. Different strokes for different folks
