Default Need some updated info please

So ive been away from the modding scene for the last few months but the bug has bit me again. I was just needing some updated information on some things that were happening when I left. First, BBk shorties.. did they ever get the port design corrected? Second are there any other options now for longtubes for a 12' other than ARH? And third, the big one.. just read that superchips has released a tuner for the 12s.. has anyone tried one?? is it better than diablo sport if you don't plan on custom tuning? .. Thanks in advance for any information.. in need to go faster

If the custom trans tuning is anything like the previous models then def' worth it if not needing custom tuning.

Don't know the answer reference the BBK headers. However regarding LT headers there are now 1 7/8" headers from Stainless Steel Works-however I have heard that you should only use 1 3/4" headers for unless doing a power adder. There are also LT headers coming out from Vararam at the end of their month per their website. Lastly I saw from a worker at JBA post on another fourm that their LT headers would be out within two months (and that was posted about 2 weeks ago -people have been waiting for JBA LT's for a long time, so we shall see)

hope that helps.

Bbk says they have corrected the port design. Guess ill find out soon, they will be shipping mine in a couple days. As far as the superchips tuner, so far the butt dyno likes it but i havent been back to the track yet. It did make it scratch second which always puts a smile on my face
