Kooks 1-3/4" or 1-7/8" for cruiser ?

Im looking into a set of headers to compliment a Corsa Sport catback exhaust system #14951 & Roto-Fab cold air intake kit. I have no plans for F/I or building the motor or anything like that just a pissed off street cruiser. Which gives more power 1-3/4" or 1-7/8" ?

With the mods you have, there won't be a noticeable difference!

If you are adding heads and a cam or a blower later go with the 1 7/8" headers. PM me for pricing as we WON'T BE UNDERSOLD!!!

1 3/4 will work fine on your car..but there is no disadvantage to running 1 7/8", plus it gives you room to grow. I am gonna run 1 7/8" on my own Camaro.

There will no difference that you will notice/see. So, you could go either way...with that being said, it is probably in your best interest to go with the 1-7/8s just because if, in the future, you decide to make a lot more power...then you will already be set with the most optimum header size. You could get the 1-3/4s and still do a big power adder later...you will just be making a little less power then you would be if you had the 1-7/8s.

Went with Dynatech 1 7/8 from Jannetty Racing and couldn't be happier. Came with OE style gaskets and new header bolts. Fit and finish is top notch and the price was right

another vote for 1 7/8ths

especially if you plan on more engine mods.

he hooked me up too. I think Jannetty showed the 1 7/8 to be superior even on a stock car.
