SVT Header and H&R Cup Kit

So, I bought an H&R Cup Kit and was planning on buying the SVT Header. The only question I have, seeing that SVT owners know that the SVT Header sits kinda low, will the header be too low for my drop? You know, will I rub. If there is a chance of rubbing, I am gonna have to get the standard shorty, and so on set-up.

Thanks

I have the H&R Cup Kit, but a FC long tube header

to be honest I have a hard time with the thought of anything rubbing with the cup kit. it's not THAT low...

Honestly I think you will be ok with the 1.8 drop. I wonder what Ed has on his but I still think that in our area you should be fine.

Honestly....I would def go with the SVT/RT combo.....I love my shorty header but I am damn sure I would love to have an SVT header with teh gains...:)

i have 1.8" progress springs, and the header is scratched up a little, it sits low...a little too low, enough where u can see it when walking up to the car, but with the worst roads in the state around here, i am still yet to actually hit. knock on wood.

So, Ed, would you suggest that I go ahead with the header or just bite it and get the shorty?

I thought that header sat pretty low. It'd be a pain to bust a hole in it on a rough road.

You will be fine with the header. Eds is scratched from something else.

The headers are tough you could beat an elephant into submission with one.
