I would say hold off on the headers until you have a few other mods in place first. That's a hard part to swap out and not too cheap either. You can swap the MAF and TB, I've heard a few good things about them but the HP gains you get really aren't substantial.savercool said:What about the factory headers? Are they a major restriction?

Did you have to use the bbk H-pipe with the L/Ts or could you just run the stock h-pipe with them?hed_strosity said:
mass airflow meter, and t-body are fine. theyre 19lb injectors.
the factory headers SUCK balls. either run the BBK longtubes, or the hooker longtubes. people see on averag a 15-20 rwhp increase with the headers and shorty x or h pipe. dont waste your money on the shorty headers either. if i had dyno results id give em for my bbk L/T's , but they felt nice.
just get a densecharger cold air kit, and dont waste your money on the maf or t-body. raven gt is one of the fastes n/a cars around here, with the bullit intake, and cams and he still has the stock t-body and maf.
headers are also THE BEAST NATURALLY ASPIRATED MOD you can do. it is pricey, but its still cheaper than a supercharger.kyoshea said:i have O/R H from BBK, you cannot use stock H b/c the headers come much further down. Headers are great once you have a power-adder.
Did the install myself w/a buddy over the course of a weekend. I couldn't do LTs because I need smog-legal parts here in so. Cal. SOTP, feels outstanding. I did them at the same time as the X. Great mods.jdub99 said:How do you like the JBA headers? Did you do the install yourself? If not, how much?
What kind of power gain? Dyno'd or SOTP?
I am considering them, but I hear the power gain is only worth it if you go with the LT's. Aren't the JBAs supposed to emulate LT's?
