That is not true. Boost is a measure of pressure inside the motor. When you add headers to a boosted application, it lets more air out which in turn lowers the boost a psi or so. Then you can swap to a smaller pulley to get the boost back to pre-header levels. I guarantee you that a truck with the same boost will make more power with headers than without. I know it isn't a Ram but we had a customer with an Vortech supercharged mustang that picked up 27rwhp by just adding headers and doing nothing else to it.

I dynoed my ARH headers.
I also did a dyno before I installed them.
If anyone tellls you you wont see or feel the difference there full of shit.
I think it was 17-TQ and about the same HP.
That was before I removed my stock muffler,which is a real restriction even after header install.

If you want better mileage,better sound,and more performance,then ARH headers might be worth spending the money on.
The only people who dont think there worth the money,are the people who dont have them.

I think SPEEDFREAK had some dyno numbers after his ARH install as well.

I've seen another supercharger company say the same thing about headers on their website back when I had my Mustang. Yeah, you might not need headers to reach their claimed hp/tq numbers but, I bet you will make more power with them.

Thanks!!! Glad to hear from someone who has ARH and did a dyno before/after....

I have the ARH long tubes on my 11 and love them. I think our forum discount took mine to 1500 with cats. The ones without are less. I have yet to dyne my truck since there are no programmers out. I don't want to know the before, just the after. My butt can tell me its quicker, and even if its not it sounds better. But I will say they added quite a bit. I felt very little gain with my Volant CAI and magnaflow muffler and a very noticeable gain with the headers. You will have a hard time finding a muffler shop to install headers, just not cost effective. I found a local mechanic to install them for 300. You will want right angle extensions from moes to keep from tripping codes until you get a tuner. Any other questions shoot me a pm and I'll try to help...
