header install issues

By the way there is a bracket that the connects are connected to, I removed that bracket= xtra debris. I also used my original manifold gasket too. I had a new oem ford one to install & saw the original one was better. I also had to oblong the bracket that does between the manifold/header & that bolts to the block, that keeps it stable. I oblonged the 2 holes on the header side. Don't run the header w/o it. Like a lot of aftermarket parts, you need to mod then. No big deal, thats part of modding. LOL

can I just get whatever 2.5 inch muffler?? Would that act the same of the fs stealth
If I had the race system w/ a header needing some mufflers, I'd go for Magnaflow. Lots of room there for 2 inline mufflers. 4'' or 6'' diameter. 18'' or 22'' long. If I was to do it, I do 2 #12646's which are 18'' x 6'' diameter. Or if you want to use a smaller diameter= #10436 gets you a 22'' x 4'' & theres plenty of room. If you want just one= #12641= 30'' x 6''. You can checkout my pix for ideas.

Or retune it with fswerks since I have the flasher its only 35 dollars for a full program
But nahh I'm sticking with fs header
