I'll take opinions, charts , 1st hand info, or Doug what his name for the gospel. How much Hp do you, lose( if any) going from long to short tube headers. We are talking bout a 400 plus or minus Hp Small blk. They're arguing out in the shop at work, and I'm tired of hearing it and told em so. So they told me to get some answers. They didn't tell me where. SOOOOOO! here I am. Lets have em. Oh, and I'm not so dumb I look, cause I ain't sayin which side of the track I'm on. >>>>>>>>>>>>>> YET!
Thanks Guys.

you will lose a good amount of torque, im guessing a ballpark 30+ lbs. and 10+hp. You will feel the difference, but please dont quote me on anything!:)

Well I don't know for sure but this weekend I am changing from from 1.5" primary mid-length Headman's to 1 5/8" 33" long primary Hooker Super Comps so naturally I am counting on getting 250 HP out of the change!

You might try registering at Headerdesign.com. They have an online app that lets you punch in various header design and engine variables and see what the recommended final header config should be.

Thanks Brent. And I love the new sig. Wifes even laughing, and believe me when I say "she ain't got no sense of humor". Also believe me when I say
"if she see's this its curtains for me.:yes:
