wannabe_svt /\/\This. I have an 18 inch Magnaflow resonator in place of the rear cat and a Borla muffler on the rear. I only really hear my car while either gassing it or going through the gears. Even then it's not that loud to me. Much quieter than the long tubes and Magnaflows I had on my Mustang

thanks foci bros
No, it doesn't matter if you have an automatic. If you run a straight long tube header without a cat it is going to be loud as Hell. More obnoxious than anyone would probably want to have it. And cruising at highway speeds will make your ears bleed because of how loud it drones on.

Blue5ive Header works pretty good for most. If no egr bung then you will get a cel. You can have a shop weld in an egr bung though for pretty cheap. Otherwise you would need a tune to turn off/bypass the egr so as to not get a cel. The svt header does flow better overall and the material used is better than the obx but you may not notice the diff. That shorty header pictured doesn't do much.

I run that header and, I like it. I gained 11whp from it.

Magus2727 Believe it provides more higher end TQ/HP while sacrificing low end power (IIRC). While the shift in power at the high end may be equivalent to the SVT the loss in low end is not.

McClane Thoughts on fswerks 4-1 race header?
11-12-2012 07:11 PM
Magus2727 The svt header has been proven to be the best header. Many people run the obx., I think the quality of material ( the SS grade) is lower on the OBX.
