    Not the shorty.

    Longtube with AIR if you still have emissions crap on it.

    I wasn't referring to which flow better,,,but it's been shown many times on engine dyno's that a tuned header will indeed make more power so long as the headers are designed properly.
    The fact that the SLP tuned headers are very "snakey" I am sure is due to these Fbodies really not having enough room to do it any other way.
    In a larger car with more room they could be designed much smoother.

    In this instance of the F-body, with tight confines and no room to work,,,I really can see where these tuned headers from SLP can have adverse affects. I was just curious if anyone else made tuned headers for the LS1.
    Most people were complaining about the price and comparing it to other headers that were not of similar design,,,which compares apples to oranges. I am just of the opinion that if a website like this is to be helpfull for everyone,,,,comparisons should be kept on a level playing field.

    To be honest,,,the non tuned headers like kook headers, pacesetters, and the like,,,will all make about the same power on a given engine so long as tube diameters are the same. Just depends on how much money you want to spend, type of material used, coatings etc...
    I will personally go with pacesetters for a couple of simple reasons,,,for one, headers generally will last me a lifetime because I don't drive the cars in inclement weather,,,and putting more expensive kook headers or some other expensive brand is not going to yield me anymore power, so the extra money that I saved can be used somewhere else.
    I am all for top brand quality parts and I spend tons of money on other things,,but as far as standard style headers go for a street car,,,the pacesetters do just as well as the highdollar stuff, and seems to be the favorite among most F-body owners that I know or talk to. Usually I will spend more money on expensive headers if the fit is better on a given car,,(hooker super comps are my favorite on the old cars due to better fitment) but most everyone is pretty happy with pacesetter fitment and quality on these 4th gens it seems. Sorry, I am done babbling. Larry.
    Thanks for the added detail Firebird, I'm feelin' ya now on your goal to get a level playing field comparo. Gotcha.

    As to your thoughts on pacesetter, you are spot on, no need to pay for the high dollar finish if you don't need it. I have had similar feedback on pacesetters.

    Good luck.

    Bigger injectors require a tune.
    And they wouldn't help anyways.

    The Mass Air Flow sensors read the amount of air into the motor. That can cause the lean condition. Replacing the injectors won't help the MAF read more accurately.
