Anyone running MagnaFlow shorty headers?

http://www.americanmuscle.com/magnaflow-shorty-ceramic-1114gt.html

I'v seen quality issues with BBK and was thinking are the magnaflow worth the almost 2x price.

I have full borla cutback exhaust.

I asked this question once and go no responses. There was no reviews either. I think most people go long tubes if they are going to spend the money. Most of what I heard is that there are little to no gains from these or any shorty header on a coyote. They already have decent flowing stock headers

Maybe but the stock ones look like ***. Plus I read it changes tone a bit.

I don't disagree. But for the money and effort involved in purchasing and swapping them out, 90% of people decide against it or go all out with long tubes. I'm like you, I considered it. I just put it on the back burner, you can test it out and let us know what you think 👍🏻

I believe you can get 10-15 rwhp from shortys.

I have decided to save and go long tubes w/full exhaust, my experiance has been that in the end I end up w/long tubes. Have tried shorty's a couple times and no real satisfaction, long tubes are the way to go.

my 2 cents,
even if shortys don't produce more horses,wouldn't it still be better to get rid of the stock ones that like to crack and leak and get ceramic coating for temp issues?thats gotta be good for something.But! if your gonna spend $600.00 or more on a set of shortys by all means go with long tubes and get your moneys worth.i went with ceramic coated shortys from pace setter (about $300.00 bucks) and so far so good.i feel like i've killed three birds with one stone.no cracked leaky manifolds,coated for heat issues and man they just look good.but again thats just my 2 cents and if anyone disagrees just tell me to shut up.

what you said does not go with the coyotes. Also, The stock tri-y header does not Crack or leak.

Only downside to the stock coyote headers is how they flow, in the higher rpms.

Only reason to get shorty's: If you live in the Republic of Kalifornia and have to have headers. Some are smog legal.

There is a few reasons to get shorty's
1. You have a single turbo kit
2. Want to keep stock cats
3. The kooks shorty's actually pick up power when paired with a good off road x. And alow you to keep building power to 7800+ vs getting choked out.
