Custom Exhaust and Headers...
I'm going to be putting new exhaust on my truck after the 5.0 is in abviously, and replacing the restrictive exhaust mans. I was just wondering if anyone has ever had a exhaust shop make up some headers for a vehicle of theirs. Cause the 2 aftermarket headers that work for the explorer and work for the ranger swap also, are just the ford racing headers and Torque monsters, which both can be spendy. So i was thinking of ordering a pair of header flanges for the explorer 5.0 and have a shop bend me some custom headers that can be bigger/longer and custom fit around what space i have. i just think it'd be alot better to spend the money in some custom work.
Also anyone know what the best combo would be for the 5.0 for exhaust size. 3" after header into 3"in 3" out flowy, or just 2.5" from header into 2.5" out or 2.25" out flowy. im prolly gona go with dual dumps angled behind the bumper/after axle (not a big fan of big chrome pipes out the rear..thats not unique anymore) or just a single dump or side exit again.
hopefully i'll get this done and figured out this month, and be able to drive it.. i cant frigen wait!
