American Racing Headers Installed (w/ videos)

Ok so the day finally came. I had my American Racing LT headers and high flow cats installed and had my Airaid box modified. So my total setup is now

MBRP Catback Exhaust
Airaid V2 CAI (modified box)
American Racing LT Headers & High Flow Cats

Unfortunately due very heavily to the weather here my dyno numbers were pretty bad. It was 100 degrees, very humid and the dyno is indoors (I live in Phoenix, AZ). My baseline (which had the MBRP and Airaid without mod) was 226hp. After the install and Airaid mod my numbers were 246hp. One of the guys in our AZ group had a dyno done here and then done again a week later in Souther California and the dyno in Cali was +30hp (it was 67 degrees)! I will have to have another dyno done in cooler weather. So the important take away is that the American Racing system gave me +20hp! Not bad at all for a bolt on system.

I will post detailed dyno sheets at the beginning of next week (they were having a printer problem and are going to e-mail me the full sheets. I'll also post my torque gains which I don't remember off the top of my head. I wanted to get this video to you guys now though. I can definitely feel the extra power and man this thing is loud now.



UPDATE: More videos!

Start Up (after driving home)


Cold Start and Rev - doesn't quite capture how good this sounds or how loud it is


Windows up (Mild Acceleration)


Windows down (Mild Acceleration)


Windows down (Hard Acceleration)

Thanks. I will say that the headers definitely make the car much MUCH louder especially without mashing the throttle too much so keep that in mind if you are looking to keep the cabin whisper quiet like it comes stock these headers with the cats are definitely not for you. As for me I absolutely love em!

Haven't had a chance to take any vids of outside revs yet. I figured I got home at 10pm and it would probably piss off me neighbors if I started doing that lol. I'll take some in the morning though. I'm taking a wait and see approach to the tune. Trifecta is cool but if i'm gonna pay $600 for a tune i'd like to get some horsepower out of it. We'll see though.

Sounds great and very familiar

Can you take some pictures of the headers, I want to see what these Jet-Coated stuff looks like.

Ya I know. It wouldn't be so bad if there was a real dyno tune available. Btw just a heads up for anyone with an automatic considering headers. A side effect of the check engine light is that you cannot use remote start. I assume that if you clear the codes and light with Trifecta or another tune when one comes out that it would restore the remote start functionality.

Thanks for the pics man, those headers look cool.

Also the remote start definitely works and I have the Trifecta tune, but I never got a CEL for the 100-120 miles I drove w/o the tune.

Ya I confirmed that if your car has a CEL the remote start is automatically disabled. The shop cleared the code for me today and is ordering O2 extensions which should solve the problem permanently for me.

Good luck with the 02 extensions. I hope they work for you, but there are members here with the BBK long tubes that adding those did not work (they eventually came back on). So one member tried doubling up on 02 extenders. IIRC that fought off the CEL for a while but I think it may have eventually came back again.

Man...theres gotta be a way to fight off the cell without a tune.

True!

But I guess the best way to fight the CEL, is to exchange the LT for SS

It would be incredibly expensive for me to switch to a V8 now with the amount of money I have put into the car. Especially considering the custom paint job. Besides....I love my car and she is one of the first 25,000 built!
