Are you going with shortie headers to keep the factory cats in place? I believe the factory headers are actually turbo headers. There probably won’t yield much more power over the factory headers.

They look like a quality set of headers. I especially like the v-band clamp flanges. Will you be doing a before and after Dyno pull to see what gains these headers will net you?
I wont be dynoing it until after , but will the tube size be sufficient? I heard if you dont get good tube sizing you’ll actually limit the power

I think the size is sufficient for a naturally aspirated car. Most people run 1 7/8” headers though.

Do yourself a favor and get new factory gaskets to prevent leakage.

Im not sure
I think they’re referencing for top mounted turbo use, but I would think you could just swap sides to mate them to the factory exhaust.

The factory headers are better than any shorty set you can buy. Go long tube or keep the stockers.

I agree with this. It is a lot of work to install headers on a Coyote. If you’re doing the install yourself, then go for it. If you have to pay someone to install them, I would go with long tubes, as you will probably pay 3-4 times what the shorties cost in labor.
