Im thinking about getting headers for my 91 classic. Ive narrowed it down to the Hotshot and the JWT. Does anyone have any advice as far as which one is better? What about high end and low end power? One more question. Anyone know a good place to get cheap performance parts?

Just to check with you guys, The header goes all the way to the Cat right??

I have a new hole in the short pipe between the flexpipe and the Cat.

Figure its a good reason to finally get a header, no??

Woo Who!!!

Thanks Brad, sweet pix! Going to pick mine up Saturday!

Now I got to figure out how to get it in.

Anyone with juckstands want to be bribed with slow smoked meat and cold beer to hang out and try to break the bolts on the stock header?

Wrench fest anyone????

Flex pipe is what you see in that photo. Flex joint is like two pipes joined together by 2 bolts/nuts but are still able to "flex". I know... Terrible description, but flex joints are what you DO NOT want. More prone to leaking, from what I've been told.

The diameter of the piping to the cat is around 2". Yeah, it is small, but some testing done by Mike Kojima has shown that going to a bigger pipe will lose power. IIRC, the Hotshot Gen1 headers had a 2.25" pipe going to the cat, but they changed that for the Gen2 and so on...

Believe it or not, I run the (some have described as) crappy Pacesetter header on my nitrous'd-up '93. And, I like it.

So there.

that looks JUST like my HS Header, and I've had mine since '96 (what is that, gen 2?) and it has not changed a bit... no rust or anything, but the welds are looking peaked. BEST damned upgrade next to the cams!!
