    i just put the dynatech LTs on two months ago. the ET in my banner for the black car was all stock motor from TB to exhaust manifolds back on dec 17, 2006. i've pushed 475 rwhp through those manifolds with a 250 rwhp shot two stage nitrous.

    i'll never know because the 408 is going in next month. well, i lied. i have noticed a great deal better acceleration driving around. just won't have any track times, or dyno sheets to see how much of a gain the headers gave me on my stock motor. most have gotten at least 20 rwhp.
