I have a PI head swap planned and figured it would be a perfect time to install headers. With a ragtop, long tubes are out of the question due to the underchassis brace and I'm more interested in torque at lower speeds than HP at higher RPM anyway on my weekend cruiser. I realize shorties aren't as good as long tubes, but they got to be better than stock restrictive iron. I now see stainless steel units for $174 on eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SHORTY-STAI...ash=item2f01b1d9cb:g:yWkAAOSw4CFY8Vhh&vxp=mtr Anybody tried these? I'm too cheap to pay double that price for new BBKs that will flake chrome soon after install anyway.
