    ok so...im anxious to drive my car with the new manifold and long tubes on. I went from a GT40 and equal shorties w/ an off road X...to a RPM 2 with a 1/2" spacer and long tubes w/ an off road H.

    i have a stock bottom end w/ performer heads and E cam. and all the other standard stuff...

    what do u you think will be different...u think its worth the $400 out of pocket i spent??

    OPINIONS PLEASE!!!

    Well I have HAD BOTH INTAKES, and I can tell you the GT-40 has a better bottom end sweet spot that the RPM, however the RPM pulls wayyy past what the GT-40 does. So you will loose some on the bottom and gain some in the upper ;D. The longtubes will benefit you all around, you will have a few more hp and tq with those over the headers you did have. From what I have read x pipes give slightly higher tq numbers that a h pipe does......not real sure on that though :dunno:. Let us know how you like the new rpm band of power.
