    ok I think im about to get some headers, and I was wonder what type also, can I just just the heads or do I NEED something else to go with it?

    well ive got the ramair air box and the hood, should have it on this week. SO the (at least) SLP intake will just offset the ramair? Also I see people saying QTP AR and Pacestetters for heads, is there much of a diff between these all. I see QTP is almost 700$ and thats without the Y pipes.

    Are you talking about heads or headers? Headers are part of your exhaust system. Totally different than heads. I think you may be thinking of headers since you are talking about pacesetter and QTP.

    Ok then......if you go with longtube headers you will need to get a new y-pipe or opt for an x-pipe and true duals. you will need at least a new y-pipe due to the length of the headers your stocker will be too long.

    some people say they notice a seat of the pants difference but I personally did not. My car just sounded meaner. I did notice that my car was quicker to spin the tires but it didnt really feel as if I gained a lot of power until I went to the track. Either dyno your car before and after to see the difference or take it to the track. stock I ran 13.4, after headers, true duals, lid, ported tb, i ran 12.9. after LS6 intake, SFC, STB i ran a best of 12.7 but consistent 12.8's all on street tires maybe a little better with DR but havent ran them yet.
