Headers

I have a 96' Bronco with stock headers and I am going to put new ones on the engine is 5.0 liter small block would like to know if it is worth getting new headers and if it is what type of headers and size should I get. I also have an emissions detector on my truck do I need to take my truck in and have a profissional do it or can I do it at home.

Re: Headers

If you buy the right set of headers it will have a bung welded in previously so that you can bolt in your oxygen sensor. Is it worth it? It all depends on what you are after. If it's for street performance I'd say definately. I think manifolds are more durrable for offroad abuse but if you stay on top of torquing your header bolts on a regular basis I'd say it would work fine as well. Some guys insist on having headers.

Re: Headers

its really not worth it to put headers on it if your going to be doing serous or even moderate off roading. i work at an autoparts store and thats one of the biggest complaints i get from people about headers on 4x4s. they get loose and its a problem. the stock manifolds are great though. alot more solid.

Re: Headers

There's alot of cool places to wheel up there in Oregon. Take lots of pics and show 'em off. I've always thought that Oregon never gets the wheelin' press it's due. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
