Headers in the Winter

Has anyone had any issues with running headers in the winter months??
Computer issues, fuel mixture, idleing?
What about heat, I expect not as good but will there be a great loss of heat?

Just get 304 stainless. Headers don't create those problems you listed; a bad tune might.

Thanks, that is what I thought but needed confirmation.

Cheers

You MAY be able to spin the rear tires if you get on it at 25mph in 2nd gear, but I wouldn't know ANYTHING about that!

Exactly, you won't have any issues. I've had ARH headers on 4 different vehicles that Ive driven in the winter with no issues.

Making an engine breathe better can do nothing but help it. And if by loss of heat you mean your interior heat, that should be completely unaffected because it works from coolant running through the heater core.

I run my car year round in Michigan and it is just fine with LT headers. It is loud on cold starts and smells more that stock until the cats warm up, but that isn't a big deal to me.
