That's a good point. You could bank the money and put it towards a supercharger or go with nitrous oxide for the same money. A 75 shot would probably be about 70 rwhp and 100 lbs-ft instead of the 20 hp or so from headers.I think LT are a waste of money if your not supercharged!! Unless you want to stay n/a and you have every other bolt-on then by all means go ahead with LTs
Absolutely. For a little over $300 you'll gain about 5 hp peak but you'll also gain around 15 ft. lbs. of low end torque over the stock exhaust manifold. (Might help you make back some of the low-end torque you lost with the plate deletes) You're also emissions legal. Long tubes will give you more hp and torque but you'll have to replace your car's mid-pipe as well. For a name brand they'll end up costing you about 4 times the price. And although you're car could pass the inspection sniffer test they could technically still fail you. (That depends on how strict you State's inspection is)Im wondering if putting on a set of Steeda Performance Shorty headers will be worth the investment-any thoughts?
What I'v modified already is on my signature so any recomendations on this????
no prob just trying to give you some options, and as far as complete junk they are very nice pieces and if you look at them and then look at jba they dang near look like copys. all the welds are TIG and the stainless looks flawless....headers for the new cars are way to much money imo.I did a little research on the web and it turns out OBX headers are made in China. That makes sense. For that price you knew they were either complete junk or made abroad. Seems like a decent part, but no way I'd ever buy them. Thanks, but no thanks. I do my best to avoid imported parts whenever possible (sometimes it isn't!). Whatever I'll buy will be made in the USA if I can help it.
