What headers are worth the money for our Dodge's. I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport Quad Cab. I have heard that there is Gibson, JBA and others. I have no experience with them, so I was hoping someone could lead me in the right direction.

Thanks
Bob

I have heard good things about Borla headers. They have super thick flanges that resist warping, and they have a lifetime warranty as well. Welds and finsh looks good on them too. now i just wish they made a set for the 351 W.

Depends on the state you are in. Technically, you can only run "shorty" headers, which kill low-end torque but really open up the high-end.

This is because you have a 2001, which means you have pre-cats between the manifolds and the y-pipes.

If you live in a state where you can throw emissions laws out the window (at least to some degree), you may get away with running full-length headers (like Borlas).

But really, unless you're running custom headers, or Thorley Tri-Ys, you will lose low-end grunt, but gain it on the high-end.

I am thinking of putting my stock manifolds back on to see if I get any of my lost gas milage back. I know I gain back some low end grunt which I truely miss.

Dont get the Pacesetter headers. They are junk. JBA makes a great quality header. Best set of headers Ive ever owned

Is it me or is there an increasing number of ancient threads popping up everywhere.

This one was started in 2001.

:withstupid: It is ok to being up old threads if you are looking to ask a question or get more information. But when you try and provide advice to a post where the guy already got his answers years ago, it is kinda pointless. Yeah GodRamit, there have been a lot of funky ones popping up.
