I have had several PMs regarding the new Stainless Works merge spike so here is some more info.

Performance Headers: About the integrated merge spike

Small details can make a big difference when it comes to performance.

Stainless Works headers just got even better thanks to the new
integrated merge spike. Designed to promote even better airflow, all Stainless Works V8 long-tube headers are now manufactured with high-performance, integrated merge-spikes.*

Increased Power

Too much air resistance or back-pressure, can make it difficult for the cylinders to expel exhaust, restricting an engine's power. Merge spikes help reduce turbulence, which means less back-pressure; allowing your engine to unleash more power.

Better Scavenging

Inspired by race-system technology and performance dyno testing, the Stainless Works merge spike was developed to direct airflow towards the center of the collector, which helps promote scavenging.

Improved Sound

The other benefits of creating a more directional airflow is that the turbulence within the collector is reduced; improving performance, and generating a purer sound.

*excludes 6 cylinder, turbo and shorty headers.

If you have any questions about this or any Stainless Works products feel free to shoot me a PM.
