Dodge Ram , Summit shorty headers
These are a new set of shorty headers I just installed over the stock Exhaust manifold that were on my truck.
Right off the bat, had better Exhaust
note, more hp, torque in the lower rpm range and idles alot better. Also
lightend up the truck a few pounds by removing the cast-iron stockers for
tubed headers. For the price you cant beat them for shortys, but one thing
i did notice on the summit brand headers there is a tag that shows they are
made by pace setter. SO if you look in the summit catalog and use 1997
Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 4x4 Exhaust
headers, look for the summit PN# SUM G9045 for a price of 154.95 then look
for PaceSetter PN#PSM-70-1315 for 251.39 why pay more for the same thing.
But they are awsome headers and you can not go wrong. These headers dump
into a flowmaster supper 44 muffler. What must be noticed is on V6 and V8
model dodge rams there are no Exhaust
manifold gaskets on these motors from the factory. The only motor that
came from the factory with a gasket was the V10 and the cummins. Gaskets
are recommended for the header swap and you can get a set of Fel-Pro
gaskets for 14 bucks from checker. This truck has Hypertech 160 thermostat,
MSD 8.5 mm wires, E3 plugs, Hypertech Power progammer III, Air Raid TB
spacer 1 inch, K&N Hi-flow filter, Summit headers, Flowmaster super 44
muffler, Royal purple 10 w30 oil, and royal purple in everything else.
truck runs awsome
Ford Bronco on the Rock Course
1 year at the Jeep Fest held at Bass Pro Shops. I was told that a(or my)
Bronco couldnt do the rock course that was strictly set up for jeeps with
extremely modified suspension. Well my truck at the time only had 35" tires
a 3" body lift and a 6" suspension lift. I think i did pretty well.

95 F150 shorty to long tube header swap
Installed shorty Flowtech headers from Summit racing and noticed a loss of
torque, combined with larger Exhaust
tube diameter... So I thought I would share a few of my thoughts on the
benefits of longtubes...and Pipe diameters

89 f250: 5.8l with shorty headers and glasspack
I fixed my Exhaust because of an Exhaust leak where the headers meet the
block. I put on new gaskets, sanded the old bbk headers, painted them with
a flat black VHT paint, and reinstalled them. They run into a 3in Y pipe
which goes to a 2 1/2x28in thrush glass pack with no cats. THe Exhaust is way to quite now, i might have to
drill a couple holes in the headers, to get that old growl back, haha.
The motor is an all stock 351w (5.8l) with 160,000 miles and a K&N intake
