Alright, so I have a lot of questions to be sure of before I pull the trigger on ordering the JBA cat4ward shorty header. I have a 2010 1500 cc sport dropped 2/4. First off will the headers fit with the drop? Second, I have the current exhaust split behind the cats running two seperate pipes to two flowmaster 40 series and resonater delete, if I order these headers my plans would be to run to separate cats for a true dual. Would I lose too much back pressure if I did this? Would it throw codes (im guessing o2?)? Would the power difference be worth running two cats? Would I need to get the truck tuned? I have the diablo sport tuner but just run the 87 perf tune and I also have the AEM cold air intake. Sorry I feel clueless right now and any help would be greatly appreciated. Also I would like to make a decision quick due to the sale on autoanything.com through the end of the year, 15% off and free shipping bringing the total cost of the stainless headers down to $430.91 which I can not find a price within $70. AND one last question, would there be any advantages of getting ceramic coating?

Sorry for all the questions but thanks for ANY answers,
Cody

I can hope these help answer your questions, I installed JBA shorty headers on my Challenger and will be doing my truck here soon but:

1. you will clear the drop with no issues, I'v dropped my challenger and nothing sticks out under the car.
2. I'm running an SRT 3" exhaust off my V6 with no big loss in back pressure. So you should be fine.
3. I didn't throw any codes, your O2 sensors should be in the collector so you will be fine.
4.You can tune the truck, I never did, as there really isn't a specific tune for headers per say. I've run mine for 2 yrs with no issues. I have a custom tune for the manifold and cams but nothing is specific to the headers.

I bought their uncaoted set as my V6 doesn't generate too much heat, I would say if you planned on racing your truck or if heat is a BIG factor then the coated ones are good to get, but if you are just allowing your truck to breathe better the normal ones are just fine.

hope that helps cody.

I agree Cody, but do get them coated...its way worth it. If your gonna do true's, put an H or X pipe in there someplace..I did an H on mine..
