What header you running??

After seeing the replies to my previous post about my possible purchase of a Hedman Hedder, I have decided to forget that! So, I was hoping you guys could let me know what header you're running and if you would recommend the brand.
Thanks!
Steve

Re: What header you running??

I've been running a Calmini header since early '91 with no problems. It has well over 100,000 miles on it.

I'm also running a Calmini header and so far, I like it. The header has a great sound to it. Mine is so mud stained you cannot see the finish on it any more.

Re: What header you running??

I have had the Doug Thorley header for several years and I am very happy with it. I bought it not only because it is the best one you can get, but also because it is the only one that is certified by the California Air Resources Board as street-legal on an emission-controlled vehicle.

I was honestly not expecting to notice any difference in engine performance when I installed it, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Low-rpm torque was improved, but midrange and high end are where it really made a noticeable difference in power. I would definitely buy another one if I had to do it again.

Re: What header you running??

I like the DT header too. I just installed mine last weekend and have only driven my rig a few times since. Although, I could tell a dif in power right away. Nice finish, I like the way it cleans up the engine compartment.

Go with a DT you wont be disapointed.

Re: What header you running??

hemo my son and I have both a calmini and the thorley on our rigs and they are both quality products , the Nickle plated thorley is the better looking especially if you are into polishing up your engine compartment as I am. you will feel the performance difference and add a K$N filter when you get a chance

were not here for a long time were here for a good time

Re: What header you running??

If you're running on-road in California, Thorley is the only way to go. The Calmini finish has been "upgraded" - it's now a bright shiny silver looking thing (I forget what they call it, but it looks great). They both will do incredible things for your power, so go for the one with the best price, I'd say.
