    Should I go with shorty (block hugger) headers or with the stock exhaust manifolds? I want more power of course, but if headers are a PITA then screw em /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif, I will try and find the corvette 2.5" manifolds.

    Thoughts?

    Its was just as a teaser like I shoulnt have opened my mouth /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gifI perfer headers over stock manifolds.They breath a lot better and produce a little more power.

    I have JBA shorties. I would like to say I like them but I'd be lying . Bolt access is a forkin joke & they require one strait plug boot or you burn that wire. Otherwise their great /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif The next set will be Thorleys
