Performance wise they are all probably the same, short headers are only good for 2-3, maybe 4 hp.

Quality wise, the Ford Racing and JBA are the only stainless steel of the bunch. The Ford Racing is probably the best quality and included accessories.

You can add Edelbrock to the list. Thing is, that looks like mine is begging to crack at the collector.
Calling them today, so much for paying extra for quality, unless I just happened to get the bad one. May be calling FC soon for the racing header setup.

My cat burnt out a couple of months ago, have racing pipe. I have to get the new engine mount bushings in, I think the torque of the engine twist has caused the crack in the headers. We will see. Taking the cat into account is a good thought, have seen many posts, including mine that have fried cats.

Keep in mInd JBA has lifetime Warranty


100% For... uhm... I think 1 year (I forgot, I threw out that piece of paper)
75% after 2 years
50% after 4
25% forever... or something like that... I dunno but its a Hell of a lot better than the other warranties

tnx


I have changed my idea, 370$ for only 2 or 4 hp... and 250$ for hi-flow cat is too expensive.
I will buy race header and hi-flow cat in the flexpipe.
tnx

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">No doubt about it, your cat will fail. go with the race header or plan on purchasing the aftermarket cat in about 4-6 months.

if i had to do it all over again...the shorty header would be one of the last exauhst mods i'd do....too expensive for such little gain in the begining...i did it as one of the first mods for some asthetic reasons.
