    headers

    if i run shorty headers on a stock 5.3 ls compared to running long tube or mid length headers will there be a noticeable difference in power between the three ?
    thanks- logan

    The shorty block huggers? Not worth the effort unless clearance issues..Mids are ok and LONG TUBES are the way to go..Very happy with my Hooker LT's..

    Stock 5.3, don't look for much detectable power changes. Larger changes would be needed to "notice" anything beyond a better sound...
