1 7/8s or 2" headers?

Which one will be a better header for a C/H/No2 setup? Also how would a 2" act on a bolt on car? Thanks.

What does "C" stand for? Either way, I would say 2" long tubes for the drag strip if that's your thing. There's more upper rpm power there even with just bolt ons

Yeah, the "bolt on" car designation is throwing me a bit

I doubt 2" will give up much, and with n2o or the need for more power later you will be covered. I would just go big. I wish I did 2" the 1st time.

2" gains on the high end. If you're going "full bore", they're good for a few extra HP at the top of the RPM band. 1 7/8" are sufficient.

Sounded like some Breaking Bad Meth stuff for a second.

2" gives you a lot of room to grow.

These cars like the 1 7/8" alot and the 1 3/4" Tri Ys even more. Be happy to help if you have further technical questions. There are a lot of good choices out there!
