is baytown in houston? cause if it is, then go with shortys because it sucks to be changing out the headers for the emisions test. if not, then go with race headers, i made a mistake by buying the jba shortys because of the same reason, but i switched over and there is a big difference in power, but then again i live in the rgv and we don't have those test here and i know the guy that does my inspection sticker

man bro, you got many options, i bought my from focussport and it cost me 309 shipped, and on that chip you can put 2 programs. it made a difference in my performance also and i love it. go to that website and it tells you everthing what the chip can do or go with a programer, it cost u more, but i heard its worth it. good luck

also i just noticed on ur sig that u have a 2.5 exhaust, man bro unless u have a bigger motor or f/i, ur actually losing power. u should stick with a 2.25 so ur car can proform a little better.

actually, the company already progams ur settings for the auto. a freind of mine had a auto zx3 with chip and cams and the rest of the bolt ons and he was beating std cars and kept up with a svtf, but if u have the spi check out www.newedgeperformance.com. that guy has parts for the spi.
