Help your muscle car realize its full potential with 2008-2020 Challenger headers from AmericanMuscle. A stock manifold usually doesn't give your exhaust gases a uniform path to follow, so gas isn't pushed out as efficiently as it could be. This can create backpressure, which can mess with your Challenger's performance. Pulling that twisted piece of metal out and replacing it with a header will cut down on backpressure and increase exhaust flow, giving you up to 10 percent more horsepower. The actual gains you get will depend on a number of factors, but you should notice a marked increase in HPs, horsepower and even fuel economy.
We carry both shorty and long tube headers. Which one is right for your Challenger? It depends on your driving style and setup. A long tube header extends at least a foot in length before pairing with your collector, giving you noticeable gains in the mid to high RPM bands, making them ideal for max speed and power are required. They're not as effective in the lower RPM band, however. And, since they aren't emissions-friendly, you won't be street legal with them.
Shorty headers, sometimes called "block huggers," are headers that are less than a foot in length. They'll give you a significant boost in horsepower and torque, but they also come with a range of other benefits. First of all, you'll be street legal because you can keep your O2 sensors right where they are. And, because these bad boys are short enough to be considered "direct-fit," installation doesn't require any modifications.
Both styles will give you healthy gains and, as a bonus, your Challenger will achieve a deeper, throatier growl that's guaranteed to turn heads when you pass.
