Great product

Just got the Pypes 304 header and noticed a big difference in power and sound. I have a Magnaflow exhaust, and with the headers it is so loud. You feel the power gain as well. Great product! I recommend

  • dont HAVE to have dual exhaust but it changes the car. and honestly if youre going for looks headers are NOT the best thing. go for an intake or maybe the suspension brace

What is the difference? I know people say that theres some horsepower and more rumble. But how much different is it? If not then do long tubes work on true duals?

  • HP wise its only a few. MAYBE +15 MAX! but sound wise its a MASSIVE difference. long tubes work but take the place of your cats. if you're in a state that requires them you can get in a LOT of trouble for it. i have the JBA headers and BBK conversion on MY 05 V6 and they are AMAZING!

    Great fit, high quality

    January 29, 2012

    I am a former automotive exhaust system technician with 19 years of experience in the field. I have installed hundreds of sets of headers during that career. These headers impressed me with the quality and the fit. I spent an afternoon installing these headers, but they could have been installed in much less time as I was allowing my son to install them for the experience. These headers could be installed in about 1.5 to 2 hours using air tools and a lift. I did it using hand tools and drive on ramps. The install went very smooth. One suggestion I have is that anyone installing these should acquire a 1 1/16" crows foot in order to remove and reinstall the EGR tube. This can be done using an end wrench; however, a wrench of this size will have a limited "swing" and it will be difficult to remove/reinstall the tube without the crows foot. The EDIS bracket will need to be removed and reinstalled as well. This bracket will need to be bent slightly to reinstall since it will be bolted on top of the header flange, rather than directly to the head as it was originally. Likewise, on the passenger side, the bracket which supports some coolant lines will need to be loosened from the head and then bolted back on top of the header flange, also being bent very slightly to fit over the header flange. These modifications are very minimal and not a big deal I bent them by hand). Removal/reinstallation of the dipstick tube is also required, but just pulls out of the block once the bolt is removed. The O-ring on the tube might cause some resistance as the tube is removed, but did come out relatively easily by twisting and pulling straight out (be careful to only twist the tube and not bend it). The only real issue I had with this kit involves the header flange to catalytic converter flange bolts that were supplied with the kit. The bolts included with the kit were course threaded and the supplied nuts were fine thread. I reused the original nuts and the new bolts with no problem. The fit is impressive, and I have to say that these headers genuinely bolted directly in place of the existing manifolds. This car is equipped with dual exhaust using the Pypes kit with OEM GT mufflers that were removed from a GT. The headers were added last and the sound is very nice. The sound is a smoother sound than with the manifolds, yet not dramatically different. I believe the performance change is slight, if any, but I don't drive the car on a regular basis. My son, who drives it regularly says it seems somewhat better. They look very sharp under the hood, but did darken (yellow) slightly once the engine started. They have been in place for two days at this point and I am pleased. I believe they are a good value and excellent quality and fit.

    Nice upgrade

    March 16, 2011

    I had bought these from a guy who's car was total before he had the chance to install them.... anyway, I knew this wasn't as simple as an oil change. Honestly, it wasn't that bad, if you have the right tools as air tools and a ramp, this make work really easy. The only "hard" part is taking off the ERG pipe. But if I wasn't stopping to answer the phone and talking to my son, it would have taken me about 3 hours to take off and install the new ones. But I also added on the X-pipe, so total time was about 4 hours. Great sound with dual exhaust. This is worth buying.

    Great sound

    February 17, 2011

    These headers are great. They are a pain in the butt to install if you only have a jack but it was worth the 10 hour install. It adds a little bit more of a deep growl to the pypes dual exhaust. Great shipping time and price too. Thanks AM!!!!

    They are okay

    February 21, 2011

    These headers took a lot longer to install then expected and i guess i was expecting too much of a change in sound. i have magnaflow dual exhaust and the headers make it sound better at idle and low rpms but it doesn't sound that much different at higher rpms. IDK seemed like they cost a little bit more then what they r worth.
