    I see a lot of stuff about long tube headers, specifically Doug Thorley's, not too much about short tubes though. What are some good shorties in terms of horsepower and torque gains?

    Do they shorten the life of the cats?

    They sound great! I have 2.5 inch duel exhaust and left the cats on for now. Took two of four cats off and kept gettin eng code so put back on. Im gsttin ready to install supercharger soon.also live in colorado and emmisions sux out here to deal with that's why didn't get longs. I paid around $365 for headers.
