    Default Headers...

    I hate to start a new thread on these but read through all the other threads and none were about my engine/truck. And I cannot find anywhere to find long tube headers for my 02 6.0. I first heard long tubes are better, then read that shorties give you torque. Then someone said trucks that are newer than 2000 or so already have an exhaust manifold that is comparable to shorties so Im all sorts of confused. Ill be clear with this, I want torque. I need the git up and go and not the top end. I dont care about the pretty horsepower numbers, I want to see in increase in ft-lbs. I thank you for any help in advance.

    Huh, i've not heard that before. It could be true, but that's news to me. Where did you get that information from, I'm curious and I'm gonna check it out myself as I've got a bud with a 2001 6.0 that he wants to put headers and beef up a little bit also.
