I’m seen some really good pricing on BBK headers. I have used AR before but life changes and so do budgets. Has anyone used BBK headers and what’s your experience with them. All comments welcomed.
Same here the BBK gaskets leaked on the passenger side forcing me to have to replace them and I also went with the Remflex gaskets as posted by CaptScat345.On my BBK shortie mod, the factory gaskets leaked in 2 places after 6 months. Got the Remflex. Now 3 years later, the current owner has had zero problems.
I really want a street light to street light runner. Shorties are the way to go. These cars make good low end torque and I’m good with that. I had a 2002 C5 that I dumped a lot of money into revved out to 7200RPMs and I’m not about to do that again lol. Thank you for the advice really appreciate it. 🤘🏽Same here the BBK gaskets leaked on the passenger side forcing me to have to replace them and I also went with the Remflex gaskets as posted by CaptScat345.
To The OP:
As far as the BBK ceramic coated shorties I have zero complaints, I did however thermal wrap them as well, they are so much better performance wise than the stock 5.7 pitiful exhaust manifolds are. The shorty headers definitely give more bottom end punch if that is what you need, if you are after mid to top end get the long tubes.
I will say this regarding shorty headers of any brand, if you don't go with high flow cats you may as well leave it stock as you won't notice much difference, that relating to flow is like a crimped water hose. Hand in hand the high flow cats and shorty headers really work good together as long as the rest of the exhaust is as low a restriction as possible.

Actually.... NO. Because I spoke directly with an SRT engineer. He said the stock injectors are good for another 50 cubic inches of engine displacement. People usually go overboard on this mod and there is no need to. Your engine will not lean out because the PCM will adjust.Tune required? No. Recommended? Yes.
