Time to MOD! - Headers, Tune, Intake!
This is a discussion on Time to MOD! - Headers, Tune, Intake! within the Mustang GT350 General Discussions forums, part of the Mustang GT350 Forum category; Labor day weekend I decided I would take the plunge and order the parts I had been researching and contemplating over for the past few ...

Nice! Can't wait for the videos.
I have contemplated modding my exhaust, but it sounds so good the way it is, I'm going to leave it alone.
What's the advantage of using e85 ?
I agree with you, love the stock sound of exhaust! And if I like it better stock after he headers are on I'll take them off and go back to stock 👍🏼

Luckily there are two stations carrying flex fuel ethanol fuel near me so filling up with e85 regularly will be easy.
Also e85 is around $1.99 per gallon near me. However the mpg on e85 is not as good as standard 91. So it's basically a wash, maybe a little less cost out of pocket for fuel using e85 vs 91.
Short answer = more power 👍🏼👍🏼
Eager to hear how everything meshes together. Please post updates when able. Thanks

I know a few guys that did the long tubes.....and they have cracked, every one of them. Engine problems as well. Also talked with the engineers from Ford that engineered this car, and they confirmed my suspicions. Long tubes......sure they said.....they will work.....for awhile. Supercharger? Turbo? Sure.....engine will last for not so long.
Do what you want with your car, just keep an eye on it. Good luck!
Hey CYAZ06 I appreciate the heads up man!

Here is Kooks description of their LT's
1 3/4" x 1 7/8" x 3" heavy duty crack resistant Stainless Steel Long Tube Stepped Headers
Must be used with Kooks X-Pipe
O2 extensions, Cosmetic header gaskets, Stage 8 locking bolts, and all installation hardware included
These products are NOT legal for sale, installation, or use on a licensed vehicle in the state of California, and they do NOT meet CARB compliance
"Crack Resistent" - thats what they claim but you never know.
Will be going into the shop this monday : ) Ill report back once they are on!
