Default 2010 Ram Long tube headers Stainless Works or JBA

Hello everyone I've been lurking on the site for awhile finally joined. I have a 2010 Crew Cab I have decided to start modding. I have ordered the Superchips tuner with the optional torque management download and the Flowmaster Outlaw replacement muffler and 180 deg thermostat. Tomorrow I am going to call Moes and order the Vararam CAI and one of Moes ported throttle bodies.I want to also buy a set of headers and can't decide between the JBA Longtubes or the Stainless Works. I would appreciate any input on what set you would prefer and if you would go catless or with high flow cats.I have the factory 3:55 LS rear end and plans for the next mod will be to swap to 4:10's. My main goal is just to increase the driving enjoyment of my truck.Would a custom tune help with these mods?

You might want to ask Matt at Moe's what he recommends. I know they are the most expensive but I think that the ARH Long tubes are really the "best". The downside is they ain't cheap! Matt will be straight with you and you can trust his recommendation.

Stainless Works, but Im bias

I am helping my neighbour install ARH soon. SO I will be able to give a fair comparison soon.

So far cost wise SW comes out ahead

Talked to Matt today very nice guy answered all my questions. Ended up going with the ARH headers ported 87mm throttle body and the vararam intake.

Youll notice a very nice power increase and tone change. You'll hear all that power underneath you, that the ARH opened up.

I got the exact same thing from Moes, but added a Borla catback.

Totally different truck!

Don't let people tell you catbacks don't make a difference. They make a very noticeable difference and there are studies to back it up.

Now, what I am wondering is if I go with the long tubes with catless Y, if a 3x18 glass pack before the muffler will keep some of the extra noise down and still sound good? The exhaust after the factory Y right now is all aftermarket with no resonators and a 3" in\dual 2.5" out MF 40 series knock off.

No custom tuning with the superchips, diablo has custom tuning options and I would recommend Greene Racing. As for headers there are some good options and I would do catless. No emissions in MI if I remember correctly. Most important in my opinion is whatever brand you decide to get, get them coated. Uncoated headers get to about 800 degrees F and coated headers get to about 300 degrees F. Those temps are taken from the outside of the header. Most people think the benefit of a coated header is to keep the exhaust gasses hotter and moving faster; and they do. But, the real benefit is keeping the engine compartment/wiring cooler. Keeping everything under the hood 500 degrees F cooler is very beneficial.
