    I would like to put headers on my Jimmy in the near future. But what do I do with the lines that go to the exhaust manifold and the bracket that bolts to it or through it for the A/C compressor (i think) Thanks for the help.

    Get smog legal headers and it will be a non issue. If you get headers w/o A.I.R. the system will not work correctly and prob. run worse than stock manifolds...

    Cool, thanks. I have dual glasspacks, would I also get more power if I changed them to flow 40's or some other turbo muffler? intake is stock right now, but I want the Eldebrok 1903 Q-Jet (so i can just swap em)

    It would prob. sound better w/flowlouders or turbo's even more so with the new headers. Maybe even consider going single 3in. I like mine just fine...
