    What are you guys doing for an exhaust? I'm in the process of building an exhaust that will clear my 4-link and bags. The best way I have come up with is run a 2.5" y-pipe into a Dyno-Max hi-flo cat through a Stainless Steel Specialties "Perform Master" straight through muffler. From there it will snake over the axle, run between the frame and gas tank and exit under the bumper. For the sake of simplicity, I do not want to try fighting duals over the axle.
    What I'm am wondering is, what headers should I go with. I know long tube headers will give me the most hp and torque. I'm concerned they will hang too low. I don't think the block hugger (shortie) headers really help performance that much. Anyone have suggestions...

    Trying to find real world results....

    Well I agree with what you said. Except everything I read on the Camaro boards indicate the Edelbrock TES headers don't perform that well either. Yeah I could get Doug to build a set, but I can't get there from here. Headers by Ed will do it too, and I don't have to be there . The only problem with that is they have a waiting list a mile long, and the price is... well if you have to ask, you can't afford. I need to talk to "The Other Guys <A target="_blank" HREF=http://"http://www.theotherguysproducts.com>http://"http://www.theotherguysproducts.com</A>. They are cheaper than Ed, but still expensive. I don't know if they will make a set or not. Besides, all this gives me something to do. You know me I NEVER have anything to do :)...

    I still haven't decided what header to go with. I guess I better wait until I have the motor before I make my final decision . There will be a small flange at the Y-pipe, then it will be 2.5" pipe going into the Dyno-Max hi-flo cat. That will allow us to build the exhaust now, and change the Y-pipe later. I hope to have some pics this week...
