LCE Header

Just ordered a LCE header for my little 2.7.
Been telling myself for a few months no, no unless it's on sale.
Well until Dec 1st you can get 10% off.

It's all your fault Greg !

I'll happily take the blame, Bob.
My LCE went on after I had my truck only a week. I paid full price and never regretted it.

Yep, I've also read about everything posted about the tooter intake spacer.
We'll probably see the "Tooter Performance Mods" website in the future?

Still wonder if he gets any kickback from LCE?

Nope, nothing... and I don't get anything from Flowmaster either.

Whenever I'm impressed with the high quality, innovative design, and genuine performance improvement of a product, I enjoy promoting it just as my own personal "thank-you" to whoever made it.

Just ordered this morning. $45 off, no tax, 40 bucks shipping. Had to pull the trigger.

Countersteers and Goodyear ATs go on next week...it's a disease....

Got the header installed.
No leaks no lights no problems,, and only one little knuckle skin.
I could feel the difference in just the 20 miles I've put on it.
Hoping to see an increase in MPG, I'll be checking it after some relearn miles.
Yep, I'ma likin it

Mine has been in for about a month and the results are noticeable. Slight mpg increase and a little more power. I'm considering an intake and new muffler if I can find one that flows well but doesn't sound like a Honda.

Cant say anything about a flowmaster but I'm sure the 18"or larger would be mellow. My factory to 14" is decent.

My question is how much difference do you actually feel? Do you feel like it's worth it. Dyno numbers aren't important to me, I care about my seat of the pants feel. Most of the time my truck is plenty powerful but sometimes at 65-70 mph going over my local bridges my truck struggles to accelerate at all and I'm not sure if it's a transmission thing or the bad power to weight ratio uphill with wind resistance.
Is it very subtle like when the truck feels more peppy in cold weather?

I'm ok with a wrench. Is this something easily installed DIY or frustrating needing special tools other than a socket set?

I felt the difference, truck feels like it pulls better/smoother.

Easy to install. I used air tools cause I'm lazy.

But I also have 4.88 gears, not sure how it feels with stock gears.

Tires and gears do make a difference. This last truck i bought had 265 75 16 on it from the region s owner. Coming from having a 3.4 auto to a 2.7l 5 speed it has seemed sluggish. But it was a trade of for MPGs. Yes putting this stuff on is a cool factor and will maybe net some kind of improvement. Its still a 2.7 and isn't made for power.

I've only put 50 miles on mine but yes I can tell mostly up steep hills.
I'll have to put some miles on it to see my mileage gains before I can say it's worth the price but as of now yes to me it was.
Install wasn't bad no special tools.

Yes tires and wheels are a big factor I have a base with 15 inch wheels, the aluminum wheels I put on it were 40 lb lighter then the stock steel.
The lighter wheels made a big change in the way the truck feels, responds and a little mpg gain.
I just topped off to get a tank average after the header install.
But now with colder weather I cant do a real comparison but it's still looking good by the ScanGuage average.
And the header just looks cool !
