    Looks good, from what I can tell.
    Can you feel a difference?
    I can never FEEL a difference in anything I do with the car.

    Right now... Only the sound. LOUD. I don't have it hooked up w/ my TDs so I can't get on it w/o being pulled for noise pollution.

    Gaskets weren't included. I used a brand new set of GM metal gasket. (OEM)

    Are the header flanges pretty thick??? I was looking at getting these or QTP's.
    Also do you think you will need to protect those spark plug wires?

    Flanges are plenty thick. Its far enough not to get burn from the primaries.

    Here are the videos:

    Open headers and with TDs hooked up.

    Yeah, it was crazy loud... All the inside parts in the car was shaking. I can see now why guys at the track have ear foamies.

    If you don't feel a difference with the Long Tubes, you need to have a custom tune like I did.
