Rogers Exhaust in Fontana, CA

I want to thank Roger's Exhaust in Fontana, CA for installing my Doug Thorley Shorty Headers! Good service by a group of cool mechanics! Will be having them do any future exhaust work for me when I need it! Here is a picture of the headers!

Nicccce! I'm digging it . Don't mean to poke in your business like this , but how much was the install? Also, what changes have you noticed since installing them? I may end up doing the same once my warranty is up on my girl. Thanks for any info man.

They charged me $440 to install due to the fact that the headers didn't have flanges and they had to custom the headers to just only bolt-on to my Cats so if I decide to go High-Flow all I have to do is un-bolt them! I noticed a better breathing difference when I accelerate. Plus it makes my exhaust sound louder also. Shorties do help your car in my opinion!

My install was fine even though the installer told me it was not easy! I decided with DT because it's a well-known QUALITY brand that has been around for a long time! The total time for install was from about 9:30 in the morning until about 5:00 PM (of course lunch breaks, a small break here and there, phone calls, other customers etc).

Noticed the biggest difference with sound, then power.

I wish I could go long-tube, but it's a huge risk here in California with the CHP cracking down! It isn't worth the risk factor of getting busted without ANY CATS AT ALL, and having to pay a MASSIVE FINE and visit a STATE REF.....I'll be a GROSS POLLUTER if I went this route and it aint worth it.

I'm trying to figure out however the CARB # for my headers so when I get my car smogged I don't run into problems.


I paid about 390 for install if I remember correctly.

The V8 Shorties from Doug Thorley is direct bolt on. Not the V6 Version of the shorties. They needed to be welded on. When they tried to weld them on, it came up short due to where the headers would be positioned. So they custom installed them for me where I can do a bolt on switch if I decide to put high-flow cats on. Win-Win for me!

It's stamped on the headers! Look at the driver side header!

Roger and his brother Sparky, yes Sparky are the best in the Biz. I have highly recommended all my Camaro friends to get their upgrades done there. Their prices are beyond reasonable.

Agreed, they have worked on both of my Camaro's. Most recently installing high flow cats, and couldn't be happier with the sound
