But they did say they were working on trying to get some numbers!
BBK's dont have Dyno numbers either


But JBA did show 15HP gain on a 3G Hemi
that alone is pretty promissing since the 3G stock manifold is better than ours based on what I've seen.

...and ARH's only show a 16 HP gain for 4x the price

factor in another couple HP if you swap out your stock Y pipe,
and your net HP gains are as good or better then ARH LT's

I'm installing my JBA's this Saturday, and already have my baseline Dyno numbers (309.03 HP, 347.52 ft.lbs Torque)

BBK pretty much said that they meant to make with the round ports, and Have tried them on a 09, 10, and 11 with no problems. But no dyno numbers. I got Mopar gaskets today, and tried a test fit. It's very close, not a big issuse. I'm still gonna try these headers on and see how they do. I plan to dyno it in the next 2 weeks for sure. So when I have my results I'll post them up. Later tonight I'll post pics of the mopar gaskets, BBK gaskets and both gaskets on the shorties to show what I'm talking about.

BBK gaskets over the Mopar gaskets.. The same ones you have.

Mopar gaskets over the BBK headers themselves.


BBK gasket over the BBK header.


The Mopar gaskets are a little larger than the header ports on the BBK's, but Its not gonna hurt anything in the long run. I'm gonna probably file down the Mopar gaskets where it lines up/ fits the BBK header ports better.

thanks for the pics. let us know how filing the gasket goes too. if it works ok I'll do the same. only a guess but I think "meant to make them with round ports" means it was less expensive. my BBKs are showing up today. I'll probably install them Easter weekend.

If I'm not mistaken the BBK's will only fit 2WD models, at least that's what it states on their website. Does someone know differently?

I was talking to a local performance shop guy last week. He quoted me $440 CAD for the ceramic shorties - a good ~$200 less than the JBA's (landed).

Heads Up

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=106126&page=6



You may want to check the recent postings on DT,
specifically the JBA one in the 4G performance section.

the BBK header flanges dont match the exhaust ports on the 4G Hemi heads
D shape exhaust port vs O shaped opening in the BBK flange and BBK are now aware it is an issue, and are looking into it.

Some orders are being cancelled and switching to JBA's
