Headers make more power than factory exhaust manifolds, but no one makes a full-length tube header for the 8.1L yet. We had Morse Muffler in Burbank, California, TIG-weld us a set of tubes from mandrel-bent 304 stainless with 1/2-inch-thick flanges. These pieces were beautifully crafted to awaken the Rat-bread power from an otherwise stock engine. The headers flow to dual 21/2 stainless Borla mufflers that exit in front of the rear wheels with a ferocious pro-stock exhaust sound.
