So I've decided to go with a set of headers and what I've found are all long tube and not street legal for emissions. I'm not sure if NC is too concerned with this, but being military, I never know where in the hell I'll end up and want to prevent spending money over again if I don't have too. I'm having Super 44's installed this week and want to get more flow from the front to the rear. Before anyone decides to try, I'm happy with the 44's sound and that's what I'm going to go with, no mind changing there. :thongue2: What I'd like to solicit from you all is what header options keep me legal, are priced decent and add the performance. My intent is to get it breathing better, not worried about racing it. I know ceramic coating is preferred for heat controlling and performance. Let's say my budget is around $1000, what headers add the best performance within the price, will last (corrosion, rust, etc), and compatibility with other systems. I'm expecting the recommendation of a system with high flow cats as a part of it, and will have to sit and wait for the money to build. I know it's moderately retarded to purchase headers to then step them down into stock cats because you are re-restricting the exhaust system. If there are solutions, I defer to the knowledgeable crowd here. This isn't a need, just a want like the rest of us here. A friend and I will install them and go from there. I'll take video of the stock exhaust for the masses here (not that you all don't know what a 6.1L sounds like), post 44 install, and headers if I can afford them for sound comparison. Thanks ahead of time.
