So are you going to scrap them now that they're built all wrong John? You might need that 5-10 ponies against a stroker.
Or another 6.0

I didnt even see the headers before I posted

they look exactly like I would expect any space confined set to look like. they will serve their purpose just fine and out flow the stock stuff all day long...

for what it's worth; when I build some they will look exactly like that.

Those headers will cause no issues, especially with throwing codes.....as long as you still utilize the front O2 sensors of course. I wouldn't expect much, if anything, for power gains though. The stock manifold design flows really well. Shortie headers(which those essentially are) will give very little increase, maybe 5hp. Mid length will be a minor seat of the pants improvement, but if you're going to headers for power gains then longtubes are the way to go. I know you didn't have those built for performance reasons, just saying how it is for the gen III and most engines in general. 95geo got into more of the specifics about header design, but there's a general outlook for ya.

I know, I just wanted to get in on the "who has the least slow trail rig" competition
I'm shooting for low 14s on 41" tires, I don't know why.

I really do like the I-6 strokers though, my buddy has one in his YJ and it rips.

I can't wait to get my rig done and actually start wheeling with some of you guys. I only used my XJ in the UP, I wanna get out with some of you fuckers now that I'm back downstate. I've seen the HP60 you're putting in the XJ but I haven't seen the rest of the rig since back when it was on 36s......and that's just cuz I saw it in the Home Depot parking lot.
/random thoughts


BTW the rig looks great John, it's come a long way since I saw it.

WOW, Thats what they look like! You'll be fine and shouldn't throw any codes because of the exhaust, If you do (which you won't) I have a trick for that.
