at this point here is my concern. i was pretty gungho on getting the shortie headers but now with only getting 9hp and then increasing the temps under the hood which would prob just defeat the 9hp gained im guessing its not even worth it.

has any one with shorties seen positive results from them?
You'd be surprised how fast stainless can corrode with moisture being trapped and high heat.
JBA and BBK offer ceramic coated shorties
