Can anyone educate me on Headers?


Recommended Posts

You'll see 5-15 HP, depending on brand and dyno. They're not big on power gains, but they look nicer than the rusty OEM manifolds and sound a bit better too.

The FRPP or JBA's are both equally nice for fit and finish. The install is difficult, because the space is extremely confined. I highly suggest raising the motor, before attempting to loosen the stock hardware.

Retune is not necessary FYI.

My car has the Whipple 550 HO kit on it. Over the winter I pulled the stock exhaust manifolds off the car, which are quite nice actually. We ported them and then ceramic coated them. At the same time I built production off road pipes for the car that bolt to the stock manifolds and stock X pipe. When I dyno'd the car again I gained 30 whp. Not bad for the changes.

There was a member here, LuLu, who claimed dyno tested 13 hp w/ a tune (I believe). I tried to find his info but was unsuccessful, so I don't know what headers, etc. They were shorties, however, I do remember that.

He bought the ones from Pypes because they were the least expensive

Okay, so are brands drastically more/less performance enhancing than others? Otherwise I think I'll just go with an FRPP set. I'm looking at a few things that might require retune though, so I might pile em up in the garage ad then call Evoperform/Brenspeed up and get an all inclusive tune package coming. Not too trusting of the local tuning options around here. Unless someone highly recommends one in the Denver area.
