Any specific reccomendations on brand/model header?
What about exhaust, I have to say that after driving a Mustang years ago with Flowmasters that droned at cruising speeds, I really like my quieter ride to work and don't want to sound like a swarm of angry hornets is chasing me everywhere I go. Any suggestions on what works good but isn't obnoxious sounding.
I was thinking about doing my own intake in a few weeks when I get a chance to really pour over design, can't see spending a lot of money on that when I can make one.
Header is dependant on how much you want to spend. You can find a used Hotshot for $250 or a new PS,OBX,TopSpeed header for around $150 -$200. You will pay for quality though. I had Pacesetter for years and I just switched to HotShot and it's Night and Day in response but there's less than a 5whp difference (dyno proven).
For exhaust you can get a VRS piping kit in 2.5in with a nice big resonator. I run the SS VRS piping kit (3in $200) and a 18in SS resonator with a magnaflow muffler from www.ajusa.com
. This is a very quiet setup and cost efficient.
If you make your intake do a short ram with 2.5in piping and a nice K&N cone. Great sound and great performance.
'91 intake cam is a great mod if you are ready to open the car up. I did it before I got my S4 cams.
with a 2in exhaust, Pacesetter header, PR CAI I hit 140whp when i get the JWT S4 cams I did 153whp. Stock is around 118whp
