Another Header question



So i have Roush A/B's. Love them. I am thinking of getting some Long tubes and X Pipe. Question is, Will the LT's and xpipe make my car Obnoxious Loud? or will it still sound real good just a bit louder?

Not sure yet I have the roush and am installing SW LT's and o/r x pipe In a few days! Will let u know how it goes! I'm thinking it's Gona sound great! But will definitely be loud at higher rpm's.

Re: Another Header question

If i do get the headers, the place that will install for me will do a Dyno tune for $250, that a fair price? or should i order the SCT with free tunes for life ?

For a custom dyno tune 250$ is not bad. U have to have a SCT tuner to do any tune! If any thing get the bama sct tuner u will get free tunes for life then go get dyno tuned. If they tell u they can tune it with out the tuner don't get tuned there!!

$250 is very fair. PCM charges $250 for N/A dyno tunes, Fastlane told me $300. I'm in Raleigh NC.

Where in texas are you?

You don't have to have a SCT for a dyno tune. They can connect the laptop yup to the car with the right cable. More then likely they have it.


When getting a dyno tune make sure the shop has done some 5.0's. They have experience in tuning them.

With the Roush Axle backs it is going to be pretty loud with LT's. But some of us like loud.

Yes that is correct but I don't know any shops that will do that. Most shops will make u buy a Tuner to get a tune. I called around about that and they all told me I had to purchase a tuner. But if u can find a shop that will accommodate u good for u.

Fort Worth, will be taking my car to Gear Heads in Arlington. I think all they do is Mustangs, read a lot of good things about them. The Laptop way must be how they do it, cause they didn't tell me to buy a tuner.
