Well we already have a longtube discussion. So ,why not a discussion about shorty headers. Does anyone have shorty headers on their car? Is there even a company that has them for the 03 Cobra? Are they worth it? Im sure they have to have some benefit over the stock manifolds. Or do they? Im looking to get headers and do not want longtubes right now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Jamie

See <http://www.svtperformance.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=27158>.

JBA #1625-7JT and FRPP #M9430-E465.

> Are they worth it?

As always, it is relative to what you can afford. Third-party installation costs are nearly equal the cost of the short tubes themselves. It is worth it to me.

>...some benefit over the stock manifolds. Or do they?

Sure. Some.

Thanks for the replies so far. I am very interested to see what you put out SonicBlue. BTW, what are your other mods?

Reportedly the owner of JBA purchased a 03 Cobra and had the 1 5/8" set modified to specifically if the 03 Cobra. He reported a 22 rwhp gain over stock also. If I was to buy shorties I would definetely go with JBA I had them on my 95 Cobra and they were great quality and never had a problem even though I had my exhaust on and off the car more times then I care to remember they never broke. I am probably going to go with the QMP Long tubes though sense they don't cost that much more and I expect installation on this car will be a equivalent b*tch with either set-up.

I just checked Maximum Motorsports and they have JBA 1-5/8" 1625-7JB with jet black ceramic coating for $629.95/set. Its funny they have a note that these are only for cars producing over 300hp.
