Gotta disagree with you mr will smith, you must be one of those people that hate the drone of exhaust:so lol jk no i would say that pypes is a good brand but they are to quiet for me. i had slp loudmouths on my v6 and i loved them. kept the stock exhaust manifolds and just had my muffler shop build my h pipe, no x pipe makes it sound weird. but slp was my favorite, along with a o/r x pipe and american thunder axelbacks:bigthumbsup

before you put headers on I would do your intake or the their will be no flow and just a waste of money. throw on the slp louds they will work but no offense no matter what exhaust you put on it will never sound like a gt as long as that 6er is under the hood but it will sound good:bigthumbsup

well if you want pypes, i must insist that you buy violators, forget about not being loud, ive been told on more than one occasion that my car is the loudest v6 out there. its got a great smooth tone, and it gets deeper when you break them in.

the difference between long and shorty headers is like night and day, new shorties are basiclly the exct same thing s your stockers, just shinier, whereas long tubes will give you a sound boost, as well as a LOT of power

alright thank you silverbullet and yes i would agree on borla but they are very exspensive lol and i will look into violators but just to make sure will any headers connect with my exhaust kit i buy and so long tube headers will increase my sound and horsepower and thats what im lookin for from my headers

if you are going long tube headers you will either need a shop to custom make you some pipes that will go from your LT's to your mufflers, or you will need a shorty H or X pipe, prefferebly with cats (less popping)

alot of people say that the shortys arent any better than the cast iron, but i dont really agree. i think just by looking at them side by side the shorty will outperform the cast, and it can be calculated into the email tunes with any other mods. (less restriction, and they do look great.) :shiny:

I agree that the shorty headers wouldn't be that much of a difference--I took a look at mine the other day and the piping coming off each cylinder is very smooth and gradual--which is pretty much what makes a "header" better than an "exhaust manifold" so i hear. Good job to Ford for putting decent parts on there.

Off topic: would you consider the stock V6 "exhaust manifold" a "header"? It sure looks like the shortys without the shine as posted a couple replies back...I'd love to say I have headers and leave out the fact that they're stock lol

I'm in the same boat I want to true dual it up but I don't want to rig it. Some good replies so far!

If you get long tubes do you have to abandon the stock cats coming right off the stock exhaust manifolds?

yep. you would either have to get something to come in behind the headers and deal with the sensors or just go illigal. the cast manifolds are pretty good. the drivers side is. the passenger side 2 cyl`drs share i tube, and the shortys the tubes go into a larger collector.

gotcha so you get better flow on the passenger side plus better flow overall with larger collectors.... I can see how shortys would make it worthwhile!

i think so, esp for 100.00. i was gonna get the jba`s for 300.00 but other than the name, and they claim legal in ca. i dont think they were that much better.
