Exclamation Long tube headers or y-pipe?

ok i am debating whether to get the DT long tube headers or the DT y-pipe, what will give me better performance? I only want to eliminate one set of cats so you can see my problem, i would get both but i want to be able to pass emissions...

depends if u got emissions. its easier to swap out a y-pipe to pass for emissions than it is to replace ur headers to get tested. u can alway get short tubes and keep the 1st pair of cats and get the y-pipe.

DTLT Header's

I would do the Headers. Unless you cant get pass emissions. But with the O2 simulator and your second set of Cats still in place, you should pass.

I have the URD Y-pipe. They are awesome. But, I feel that the gains I felt were from already having Headers.. I have the same headers Tacoskim has, JBA shorties. Will be getting DTLT's in a couple days.

But yeah, for best performance = long tubes. Y-Pipe, will compliment the scavenging that your headers promote..

I installed my JBA's twice myself. Took only 1/2 hr second time. No pulling engine. The DTLT's are easier from what I hear. Plus no cats give you more room to work with.

You will not regret it. 4 more days, and URD gets my money

BTW, right now it's free shipping on the long tubes + $5 for O2 Sim. Best deal yet.
