Re: Looking to buy 02... a few questions

Thank you for the clarification.

When it comes to the exhaust manifolds that would be on an 02, are shorty headers really any improvement? The factory exhaust manifolds on the LS look like they already are shorty headers. So I question whether a good set like kooks would actually be worth the money. I'm not really into long tubes, as I don't like losing the work space.

Re: Looking to buy 02... a few questions

I would imagine headers by themselves wouldn't yield a noticeable difference in power, no matter if they are shorties or long tubes. Most people I have seen on forums that have headers use long tubes. But those people also have more mods (heads, cam, supercharger, etc.) & get the combination tuned.
