JBA Shorty Headers

Basically does anybody have experience running these? Can't really find much about power or how they sound on the inter webs. Was considering running these with stock exhaust since Im in CA and they are carb legal. Thank you

I talked to my tuner who is very reputable, and even with my cam swap, he said shortys are not worth it. I want long tubes so bad. I hate CA. My guess would be 10-15 horsepower max. Definitely not worth the price of those headers to me.

Somewhere in that thing someone said like 12hp gain. I'm going to doubt that, seems to close to call to me.

I was thinking about doing them because its a cool mod and if they are ceramic coated maybe it would reduce under hood temps. Maybe get a little hp gain.

But then I thought again, no gain if any and the stocks have a good heat shield on them anyway. Then there is the warranty. So for now, naw...

Because of the stock cats, gains will not be a lot. Maybe 10HP to the wheels

I think if someone could prove even 10hp to the wheels I would put the CARB legals on my car, maybe wait a while because of warranty issues.

If I could do long tubes and still pass smog I would do those for sure.

I think I'm here trying to talk myself into putting them on.

I think it will start next year. It's a 16 and I think it's good for 4 years before the first smog. Then every 2 years after that.

It might be 2021 because it was first sold very late in the year. Not sure.

But there is no way I will do anything that will make it fail that can't be put back to stock very easily. Like my catch can.
