I hope so!

I installed the Magnaflow Y pipe today. And I notice a loss in low end. Ive been running the SC 93 tune for a week now. And I immediatly noticed that the tires dont chirp as much when shifting from 1st to 2nd at WOT. It'll roast the tires from a dead stop without any problems (Just put 2k miles on my rear tires in one week ).

Did notice a nice bump in mpgs though.

Normally long tube headers gain torque in the low end more then shorties which show most of their gain up high.

With that said I lost a bunch of torque in my 02 durango 4.7l with a change to a 3" single exhaust. When I added shorties and a magnaflow y-pipe with high flow cat and stock diameter mandrel bent pipes it picked all of it (low end torque) up and then some.

Makes me think that 4.10's and posi will be my next mod before hitting the headers (long tube or shorty with y-pipe).

^^ If you want to go fast, gearing and LSD make the most difference. My Dad had an 02 SS Camaro with the 6 speed. A few simple bolt ons, exhaust intake chip. Then he swapped the stock gearing, forgot what it was...3:23 or something like that. First swap was to 3:73, made a nice change but the mechanic did not mesh the gears correctly and they whined. So that was all the excuse he needed to put the 4:11's in. That Camaro would jump sideways iif you dumped the clutch in 4th gear. 4th gear topped at 120mph with two more gears to go. The gear swap easily made a 14.5 second car jump to a high 12 second car in the quarter. It embarassed quite a few $50k Corvette's.. Best part was he averaged 28mpg on the highway!

02 SS stock runs 13.7 1/4 mile IIRC, just saying. My buddy's 01 z28 ran 13.8 stock. He had 2.42 gearing or something like that. He swapped to 3.55's, tune, intake, exhaust, headers, runs 13.0. Auto trans. He's about to do a 6 speed conversion.

If your not runnin a tune that gonna be a lot your problems, I'm running long tubes with no cats and full 3 in off road y pipe with a magnaflow dump with a super chips tuner and I have tons of torque, headers with no tune will kill you

Change fuel octanes twice. Go between the two and also your pcm WILL evaluate the numbers for you.
