Shorty headers won't make much of a difference so I've seen. If your gona take the stick manifolds off you mine as well just put on long tubes. Sounds like all you can do after that is a boss intake that would see any noticeable gains.

The only heads I'm aware if for our cars are the jpc custom heads or the boss heads. If you want to go all motor look up the jpc top dog package

Throttle body does not have a noticeable difference in performace. It was not recommended by my tuner.

Do not do throttle body, there is no hard evidence of gains. Shorty headers come on the car from the factory, do not do those. LT's or bust.

And about the heads, it'll set you back almost as much as a supercharger between parts and labor, unless you just absolutely demand squeezing out every last ounce of NA power from your coyote

I think I'm gonna go with American racing longtube headers with no cat x-pipe , not sure what I'm gonna do with the exhaust , wether I'm gonna come off the xpipe with Racing bullets or straight pipe or flow master or back into my Steeda kooks ...really indecisive ...well a whipple is about 8 grand I think I can get the same horsepower all motor and a bottle ...I think heads are only like 1300 bucks ...

What is your budget and what are your ultimate goals?

If you would like ... you can email me at tim@steeda.com and we can look at putting a package together for you based on your build.

Best Regards,

Whipple kits can be had for about $6500. Roush kits for about $5700, Paxton kits can be had for about $3500. All of these are easily installed in a full day. Heads will cost a minimum of $1300 before labor (I would recommend letting a shop do this as there is much more that can go wrong with heads than with a supercharger) and your probably want to do cams at the same time, no reason to have the same labor two times. All I'm saying is that when you do heads, it's a one time deal. If you so a supercharger there are many configurations and combinations that will allow you more power. With heads you will gain more in the high end and that's about it

Longtubes will give you close to 20 hp, and everyone says TB is worthless but I put on the 85mm BBK and I love it, and you can feel the gain and overall smoother running engine, I guess if you put it on stock engine then yeah no gains but when you put it on an engine that has CAI and Longtubes it works...! Just like the CAI does nothing to a stock engine, but add Longtubes and thats when everything starts working really well..

Do the JBA connect to factory midpipe or do you have to buy a JBA midpipe?

Stainless works headers are awesome, I've installed a few sets and fitment has been great. TB will not increase HP but, helps with throttle response. Accufab makes a good setup, most tuners don't really care for them as tuning can be a PITA for streetability. Heads on this car isn't worth it, you're looking at 3k at least for parts and install and the gains are minimal.
On a mod motor like the Coyote with high compression you're going to get the best bang for your buck going F/I.
