Header extensions

Post by 84foxbox » Mon Aug 14, 2017 9:08 pm

I've been seeing lots of high end race cars lately having there exhaust pipe running past there header anywhere from a foot to 3 feet.

Why? Just trying to see if I am missing some performance by not
1984 Ford Mustang GT (sbc) 6.37
2004 Dodge Ram 3500
2011 Ford Fusion Sport
1979 Ford F100 custom (sbc powered)
2006 Nissan 350z Nismo

sometimes they run better or worse,you'll just have to experiment some...one thing the long headers always help is cutting cab noise and fumes down....Plus a long header almost always sounds better!! :layrubber:
The older I get, the better I was.....
