I know that a tuner will stop a CEL but it won't stop a internal error code to show up during a OBD smog inspection. Also having a tuner installed and removed will cause FAIL smog test unless the proper 'drive cycles' are done. (been there done that). The errors are still stored in the cars main ECM and will appear during a OBD smog test. Thats why JBA states the header or exhaust system is for 'Off Road Use Only'

Although you can certainly remove or replace the stock cats , I wouldn't bother
the JBA Shorty Headers are designed to work with the stock cats and sensors that remain totally un-touched. No tuner required. No CEL's.

The Cat4Ward header simply replaces the stock cast iron "log" exhaust manifold.
There's very little risk of throwing any codes since the stock cats and both 02 sensors are down stream in the stock location.

Here's a side by side pic of a set of JBA's for a 3G Ram
the rusty stock cast iron restrictive log below



Titanuim Ceramic Coated JBA shorties installed on a 4G Hemi:






Here's a 4G stock exhaust manifold (looks even worse than a 3G Hemi) compared to an ARH longtube header.
Those are the ones to really watch out for when it comes to throwing codes because you have to relocate the cats and Both 02 sensors further downstream.



The JBA shorties are a bargain at $500 and change compared to $1500 for un-coated long tubes from ARH.

If you have a 4G Hemi 2WD, BBK has an even better deal at $399 (silver ceramic coated) or $299 (chromed)

For 4x4 4G's , the JBA's are the only cheap option for an aftermarket header.

My JBA shortys arrived the other day. the shipping date kept getting pushed back so it took almost a month to get them. not a big deal to me tho. now they are getting black ceramic coated and then they will be ready to install.

wow yeah those stock manifolds look terrible restrictive. and those titanuim shortys look awesome installed on that truck.

Just curious, why order 2 mufflers vs 1 with dual in/out? I ordered the MagnaFlow dual in/out and it sounds and performs GREAT!
i never really thought about going with 1 dual in/out muffler. i guess i just thought of true duals as two mufflers for some reason. i didn't even come across the dual in/out when i was looking or i may have gone with that

Quote:
Please keep us updated after the install I'm interested in the header but don't want any CEL's or stored memory errors on the ECM.

UPDATE..I see from the JBA website the headers are for Off road use only!
off road use only? i guess if i get pulled over ill just put it in 4x4 and hit a farmers field ill get pics up after the install for sure

The sonnax is an awesome quick mod for just $50.

Just to get this thread back on subject. I received my JBA shorties today. I'm really impressed that it was only about 2weeks from order to delivery. Although, I had to wait a little while b/c AutoAnything was listing them as out of stock for awhile. Also, the $516 for the uncoated was actually discounted by $51 using their 10% off March Madness coupon. Now, I plan to coat them myself with some header coating from Eastwood and install myself. I just need to research the other guys that have done it and find the time to do it. If I recall correctly, a couple of guys said to plan for 4 hours.

My Sliver Ceramic Coated JBA's came from AA within a week, 7 days from order to my door in Canada.
I used discount code "LOYALTY" for 15% off = ..$555

My new JBA's next to my stock manifolds




I've done Two JBA Shorty installs within a week
First one (mine) took 5 hours, second one we cut down to 3.5 hours

Both were driveway installs, on jack stands

Two mechanically inclined guy's, Two full sets of tools
Deep and shallow sockets, extensions and swivel universals joints
ratchet wrenches and stubby wrenches.

Lots more info in this thread in the performance section with pics and install tips:

Got a question here guys.. If I went with these JBA headers what else would I need to do to the exhaust ?
I currently have a magnaflow y-pipe 2.5inlet and 3.0outlet,also a 18 inch mufflex,everything else is stock on my 2010 sport with factory duals. Would I need to change out my y pipe again for bigger inlet/outlet?
ALso one more question, I live in new York, would I still pass inspection? I would plan on keeping my factory cats as well......thanks
Eric.....

Nothing else required on the exhaust, you're all set,
emissions wont be effected, that's a huge benefit to JBA's over LT's

Still have a stock intake? Better open that up for better flow too, goes hand in hand with exhaust and tuner to complete the "Big 3"

You'll want at the very minimum, a drop in K&N replacement flat filter
perhaps mod an extra inlet hose to the bottom of the stock box.

Other CAI options for a little more money:
aFe, Mopar, K&N,Airaid, Volant and Vararam.

I've used 3 different setups on my Ram before finally settling on the Volant. 3 good reasons:

100% sealed system with a lid , wont allow hot engine air in
Excellent high flow Dry filter good for 100k miles, never needs cleaning/oiling
Optional port in the bottom for a Ram Air tube.
