Jake here for AmericanMuscle. And today, I'm taking a look at the Stainless Works 1-7/8-Inch Long Tube Headers with Catted Mid-Pipes for 2006 and newer Hemi Chargers. If you're looking to take your exhaust and kick it up a notch, then a set of long tube headers like these from Stainless Works might just be the upgrade you're looking for. These headers combine high-quality construction with a strong performance to make an awesome upgrade to the driving experience and the sound of your Hemi Charger.Now, before we dive in too deep, I just wanna make a note of the fact that while these will fit all sizes of Hemi V8s available in the Charger, they will not work with all-wheel-drive models. Now, engines are at their core, basically air pumps. That means air must flow out just as it comes in. And let's face it, the Hemi is a big air pump no matter how you slice it. So if you wanna increase the breathing capabilities of your Hemi, especially if you've already added some induction modifications, like cold air intake, a manifold, or something like that, a set of headers might be the best upgrade to make next.Now, unlike a lot of other modifications that claim to increase power, you are gonna get a noticeable change with a set of headers like these. There's a lot of information out there regarding whether or not you should go with long tube or short tube headers, but the short version of the tail is that, in most cases, if you want more power at the top end of the rev range, more revs, and better sound, and more power gains overall, long tubes are gonna be the way to go. They have these longer primary tubes, hence the name, so they're gonna allow the exhaust gases to flow better, which will ultimately result in more power.Now, short tube headers are great for turbocharged applications, and they're usually a bit easier to install in addition to being less expensive, but they don't produce the same sound, the same high-end power, or performance boost you get with long tubes. And since most Hemis are running naturally aspirated or with supercharges from the factory, if you want the power, long tubes are your ticket here.Now, of course, as the name implies, these headers from Stainless Works are of the long tube variety. They have a diameter of 1-7/8 inches so they're gonna be noticeably larger than your stock manifolds, as you can see right here. These are made from 304-grade stainless steel, so corrosion resistance is excellent, and they are fully TIG-welded and CNC made for durability too.Now, in addition to these pipes, you also get these mid-pipes with high-flow catalytic converters. Now, as you can see, the cats are pretty small. This one basically fits in my hand and they have a really high flow rate. You can see all the stuff in there. You might even be able to see some light coming through. So that means they're not gonna kill the sound. And that's a big part of the reason that you wanna get long tube headers in the first place.Now, as you probably noticed too, there are spaces for your oxygen sensors, both upstream right here on the collectors, and the downstream ones here. You also get wiring loom extensions included for upstream and downstream, and you even get a different one for if you have a Hellcat model. Now, having these mid-pipes included means that these are gonna pretty much bolt up to any exhaust system, including your stock one. So if you want to keep things a little more subdued, you can run these with the factory exhaust on your car. That means you also can run them with an aftermarket exhaust for that full muscle car experience.Now, like I mentioned earlier, long tubes are loud. You get a really bold, aggressive sound with these, and it really does wake up that Hemi engine. And that's in no small part due to how these are constructed. Again, the stock exhaust manifolds force exhaust gases together, basically as soon as they come out of the engine, so, everything gets jammed up into these smaller pipes, then there's basically one smaller collector down here, forces it all into the stock downpipes and the cats pretty quickly.Now, these long tubes give the gases ample time to begin flowing out of their respective cylinders before they mix together in these big collectors down here. This is gonna relieve back pressure on the engine, which just allows for more flow, which is important for power. Now, as with most things that make a big difference in the power and drivability of your car, these don't come cheap. They're gonna run you around $2,100, and that is about in line with other equivalents in the category.Remember, you're getting the headers themselves, plus the mid-pipes, the high-flow cats, and this is all a bolt-on setup. So you are getting a lot for your money here. Stainless Works did an awesome job with these. They're really high-quality. They're made right here in the USA. And if you're shopping for long tube headers, these are absolutely worth the price of entry.On that note, we do need to talk about the install. Not pulling any punches here, doing headers is not an easy job. These are gonna get a three out of three on our difficulty meter. And you should plan on it taking you the better part of a day to do this job. It's gonna test the mettle of your toolbox and your mechanical skills. It's an involved job, especially if you don't have access to a lift.Of course, asking your preferred shop or your mechanic to install these is always an option. And in a case like this, if you're not really comfortable doing it, professional install is gonna be your best bet. Now, as with most things, though, if you have the skill set, the toolbox, and the time to do them at home, you can get this done, but just make sure you're aware of how involved the job is before you attempt it.So that's gonna wrap it up for our review of the Stainless Works 1-7/8-Inch Long Tube Headers with Catted Mid-Pipes for 2006 and newer V8 Hemi Chargers. Thanks so much for watching. And remember for all things Charger, be sure to stick with us right here at americanmuscle.com.
