    No emissions here. If you get the ORY, you won't pass unless all they check is your Check Engine light, and not do the visual/loaded testing. You must either get rear O2 simulators or get that tuned out of your PCM.
    Did you get the ceramic coated? Did you also know that Hookers are tuned length headers, others (Pacesetters, some others also) are not? That was a deciding factor for me.

    Yeah the whole emissions thing is y I don't like nc. Yes I got the ory with it. No I wasn't aware that they were tuned headers. I'm not sure what all tests they run but I have a funny feeling that once they see them or see my cutout that they will have a fit! Nice pic!

    Has anyone ever dyno'd a set of hooker lts vs. any other brand? I would want to see a significant advantage to lay down the extra cash for them or another brand instead of buying Pacesetter. However, one advantage I have is very low driving miles. It is stored during the winter so worrying about road salt eating a set of headers is not a concern. If I had to consider that I would probably spring for a stainless steel set up front.

    Probably gonna be a bunch of people who say it ain't worth it. I suppose the difference between tuned length headers and non tuned length would be 5 or less....I believe that since you have (and would want to have) the same intake runner length that the exhaust tubes should be equal length also. Then there is always other types of headers, for specific RPM, that will out-perform others. There is a huge variety of opinions on this.

    Cordova is 630 feet up.
    Sounds like the weather was somewhat to blame. Too hot.


    I am REALLY hoping to bring "Slowass" out to Cordova sometime early next season. Probably won't happen, but I can hope.
    Really close to where I used to live and I still have a ton of family out there, so I can kill two birds with one stone basicly. Race off the mountain and visit with family.

    Yes.

    I was born in Clinton, IA. Just up the river.

    No kidding. I still get called to work out of Clinton every once in a while. If you end up coming back we should try to meet at the track. Be fun. I have a friend with a Mustang that would be a good challenge. You're in the 11's right?

    It would probably be deep 11's upper 10's down there.
    Depends on a couple things. Went 11.9 at 5800 feet above sea level.

    Cool. Well, like I said, if you end up down this way drop me a line and I'll see about being home to go to the track. Travel for work quite a bit.

    Probably going to be a while.
    But I will keep that in mind.
