    Question About Long Tube Headers

    My car is lowered, I was wondering if putting a set of long tube headers on my car is going to create an even bigger problem with ground clearance. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I've heard that the SLP long tubes are the only headers that decrease ground clearance.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have tubular or boxed SFC?

    I have the slp long tube headers and i wouldn't ever drop my car, they are only a few inches from the ground at stock ride height. Even the smallest speed bump is my worst nightmare.

    That's only a problem with SLPs, any other long tube will be fine.

    My grotys are tucked up pretty good. My y on the other hand is the problem area, ive scraped it 2x now so i really gotta watch myself. And to think i wanted to drop my car an inch or 2, HAH. If i did that the y would be laying on the ground.

    My Jet hot headers are tucked up nicely.

    My Jet Hot Y pipe hangs about 2 inches below my boxed subframe connectors.
