yea i know that im jsut wondering if the headers are going to give the exhaust more of a deeper sound
It should and a power difference
have you ever listened to an old hot rod.
it sounds good and deep but if you hear the same car with headers you hear more tone and feel more power.
I want some headers. After that I'll want a cam


A friend just put headers on his jeep with a flow master and it has a nice deep tone and he has the stock cat on it

If you look at the factory header, it is insulated. Now look at your Edelbrock header. It is not insulated. There is a gain in hp, and sound. That is the selling point of Edelbrock. It is a great header, with less resistance to the flow of your exhaust.

Warning: you may want to wear earplugs, especially if you add on flowmaster mufflers...........big grin inserted here.

That sound is great...but I am going to be the old fogey here. If your jeep is a DD, and you do any longer distance trips, that "awesome throaty sound", can really get on your nerves about 2 hours down the road.

Different headers can make different sounds but it also depends on your cat and muffler. I don't know about Jeeps but generally long tube will help produce a deep tone but you have to use a muffler with chambers. MAC, IMO, has the best sounding mufflers.

headers should also increase gas mileage, now i said should, not they will. so that whole dd factor is out for me. personally i do not mind the sound, especially if my tank stays fuller longer! lol. i plan on getting headers myself, both for sound and power, the right ones will do both. their main focus though is power
