    So I want to get some headers and go deaf but I am not really sure what I should get. They would be going into a MRT-H pipe so I am not sure what end/size I need since some of them are made to connect to certain CB systems, etc....

    I also have the canned lund tune I assume I would have to get another tune to compensate for no cats?

    I kinda feel like lund has posted you don't need an update for headers but I could be mistaken

    Texas speed and bbk are what I've been eyeing.

    I'm just not sure I'm ready for the sound increase

    All Lund tunes have the rear (after cat) o2 sensors turned off. You do not need a new Lund tune if you bolt a set of headers on.

    All depends on your budget. ARH/ SW/ Corsa/ Krona are all great options. Give us a shout if you have any questions, thanks!

    I have to assume this does not mean there are no gains to be had by getting retuned if you are already tuned and then add headers?

    per lund when i asked about retuning after adding headers is that their tune would compensate for the difference in air in and out and would be able to adjust accordingly without need or benefit to retune. could be bullshit since i feel like everytime i ask them something i get a super short answer and i know nothing about tuning so theres that

    Whatever you do, don't put LTs and the Roush Axle-back exhaust together. My ears lol.

    Yeah I ordered the catless texas speed headers I didn't know there were headers for that price :eek:

    TY for all the input on the tune I will just use what I have now and keep an eye on it but I guess it should be fine.

    I'm just waiting for a deal on TSP headers, looking at the setup with HFCs. Every once-in-a-while I see a GP, or some kind of discount (a few points off, maybe free shipping).

    I think the best deal on TSP headers is going to be ordering with Beefcake now that they just started carrying their products. Ordering thru TSP directly (which is what I did) they charge $40 for shipping (unless you’re military, PD or FD) and I live in Texas. I also had to pay tax :/ I waited for Black Fri in hopes of some kind of deal but nothing was offered.

    Beefcake shows a $25 flat rate shipping and no tax.

    Headers will make your axle backs extremely loud thru an X or H pipe.
    If you need to tone it down try magna-flows resonated tru-X from CJpony.
    I have borla s-type AB's and before removing the H pipe it was stupid loud and I have the race cats too. The magna flow really makes a big difference, you only hear it when you put your foot in it.

    Yeah, I contacted them about a GP a while back, I'm hoping around spring they'll just do some kind of promo.


    Thanks, I didn't know that. :thumbsup:
