And you wouldn't have had the opportunity to try the Chevy headers without a set of Uncle Charlie's "Ford to Chevy" header adapters Exclamation You should "love me" and therefore buy me breakfast. Laughing

By the way FABIO, you still owe me $225 for the set you f'ed up Exclamation Evil or Very Mad Dave had to use a brand new set, because those that you messed up aren't usuable. Shocked I'm still mad at you Mad Keep your day job and don't you EVER try to port match anything again Exclamation What did you use Question Paul Bunyon's axe Question Talk about a bull in a china shop affraid

Charlie Evans
I had dropped a set at Jet Boat Bobs i got from you last year, did you bring another set out?

And yes I'll buy you breakfast when I get in.

No, I didn't. I assume what Bobby Shrewsberry had there was the set from over at Jet Boat Bob's.

What was hanging on the wall in the dyno cell, was the f'ed up set from FABIO. I'll never get healed up from over that fubar:!: Evil or Very Mad

I'm just harassing your azz. Laughing I know you've offered to pay, but I get more mileage out of it this way. Razz It's like the time I bought Wes Litteral a T-bone steak at the Roadhouse and he ordered a 32 ouncer. I had to float a loan to pay for that, and I've never let him pay me back, because I love teasing you guys. Laughing

True big tubes work on a race engine operating in a 1500 rpm window..... You'll see a big average loss on a street motor that's operating below 6000. It's all in where you want to make the power.

Wes is a big guy and therefore needs a big meal. That was probably just an appetizer for him actually. Come on out here to cowboy country and I'll fix you up with a 40 oz. Prime Rib that will clog your arteries and leave you with a big ole smile on your face. I always say that you can tell that it's been a good meal if when you are done you can feel your arteries hardening and clogging. Laughing

True on a street engine, but as I said when your talking these engines, it seems they like the bigger tubes, yours made more at the torque peak and it stayed there, also picked up torque below too.

I also know that what happens on the dyno , don't always transfer to the track, but I think this time it would. Nice gain.

One can always put a too tight converter in a deal and blame it on the headers tongue

Dave, forget about all that 'masters of the universe' bullshit and what the engine makes from 3,500-4,500 rpm...this is the real world...let the stall rule Very Happy

Amen on the stall in a race car...... but when your in a contest you go with what gives the results !!!

I was doing some reading an headers and it seems the concensus is that heads with poor exhaust ports seem to like bigger headers, it allows some expansion of the gas and better flow.
