I'm looking to get some headers for my 86 stang anyone have any suggestions or have a pair laying around? Preferably long tubes but whatever your guys think flow better and sound better.

Unless your planning on some serious HP I'd stick with shortie headers bro. Shorties are plenty suffecient for most builds, especially a bolt-on 306 or street stroker combo n/a or with a spray. My old 92' LX with a 331 stroker made 425hp and went 11.80's on all motor, ALL DAY!!! I had BBK equal length shorties, but if I were you I'd just do the un-equal length shorties as the gains are minimal between the two and spark plug changes were a lil tricky on a few of them. The loungtubes will cost you some low end power and unless your building a high revving stroker they will hurt you more then help you. Longtubes are a pain to install and a biyaaatch to work around. LT's will cost you more & ground clearance is another issue wit the LT's. Once again HP gains are only 8-10 HP or so (depending on the combo). Not woth the hassle! Basketball

ok sounds good, I found a pair of LT macs on westside for 250. But If I go LT I will have to redo my whole exhaust, so shorties will be way more cost effective all the way around.

Jay brought up some valid points but I personally wouldn't put a set of shorties on anything. The stockers are a factory shorty header and granted they have some crimps in the primaries I dont see it as a huge gain. As long as your a 5spd I wouldnt see any major issues with long tubes. The only issue I would see is a starter issue but thats easily solved by a high torque or a 94-95 starter upgrade.

I'm so confused lol So if I could get the MAC LT headers for 200 would that be a good thing? I do have a 5 speed and never plan on changing that.

ok he said 200 works for him and another guy is going to sell me flowchamber with flowmasters and flow pipes for 150. Sounds like a good deal to me. Full exhaust system for 300 bucks.

thats a good deal. However make sure you run a Mac Midpipe. I believe they were a little funky on using other brand midpipes.

not that savy on exhaust, but shouldn't the LT's hook directly to the Mac prochamber then regular exhaust out the back right?

I was actually looking at this on late model restoration, they have it for 699 w/ free shipping, but I would still have to upgrade my front spindles. Which means I would have to do the rear ones too, cause if I'm doing the upgrade I would want to go 5 lug. Which means I would have to do the rear end since it is a one wheel wonder. List goes on and on. figured I would take care of a few other things first.
