So I've had my swap for a while now and have been holding off on getting my custom headers made. I have a VERY good fabricator that builds amazing headers that will do it for around $700. This beats waiting months for Torque Monsters if I could ever get ahold of the guy anyway. While I was in the guys shop, he asked why I don't just go over the frame. I told him my LT suspension, clearance, etc... Looking at it, I'm now wondering if I should really consider this.. It is just my play truck and I don't have much of a reason not to. I do drive it on the road, but it's already loud now as it is. Not concerned about noise anyhow. He wouldn't have any trouble making it work and I've seen a FEW setups like this done on drag Rangers. Just not a lot of offroad trucks where you have a lot more going on with suspension.
Anyone have any other reasons why this might not be very good? I mean, running the headers inside the frame is already a super tight squeeze and isn't ideal either. Sucks I just did my exhaust, but it was only $220 for all the routing and flanges. I currently run 2.5" dual with Flowmaster hi-flow cats (super small) to Super 10's dumped at the back of the cab. I would do this, but just down the outside of the frame rails tucked up nicely.
I'd have to keep some stuff away from the exhaust and get them ceramic dipped, but there is room for it currently...
Losing the A/C box soon here as well.
