    I am geting headers soon,:D yet I don't know which. I know I want Doug Thorleys,, but I don't know if I want the shorties or the long tubes. I have true dual exhaust now. The part that I am tripping over is that I am going to get the APR x-one and want the most compatibility and the most power. Would having the long tubes and the URD o2 simulator disrupt the programmer? Would there be any emission problems?:confused: Thanks

    Lots.
    You want the long tubes. Much more power output than the shorties. Call Gadget at URD ext. 3 and he'll get you set up.

    Got the true duals when I bought it years ago. Thinking of changing but want duals out back. Who makes a 2 in 2 out muffler?

    Flowmaster does I know, I am sure most muffler manufactures do.

    DT LTs cause you to lose low end torque for the high end HP gain.

    Something to consider if you're more concerned with the low end. This is the very reason I'm going with shorties.

    I definitely want more low end. With the current exhaust and the intake the low end is suffering. What else would help the low end?

    A supercharger.

    The reason low end suffers with true duals is because it fucks with backpressure and exhaust scavenging.

    Time and money is the only thing holding me back from the super charger.

    You can precede just about anything with "Time and money are the only thing holding me back from ________"
