6 into 1 header question....

Hi Guys, okay, I have decided to go with a Clifford High Intake Water Cooled Intake Manifold for my '86 CJ7 258. I'm also putting on a Holly 4Bbl 390 secondary vacuum Carb.

I'm also going to put on some 6 into 1 headers. But I don't know which headers to go with. Should I go with the Clifford Headers to match the Intake, or should I go with a set of Hedman Headers?

Any opinion would be helpful.

Thanks,

Todd.

The Tri-Y torque thing was pioneered a long time ago by Doug Thorley headers and has proven to be more of a marketing ploy than anything. The idea sounded good in theory and looked good on paper but just didn't produce anything better than the traditional style headers.

In my opinion, the Borlas are over-hyped and over-priced and your money could be better spent elsewhere. They do have a nice finish on them though.

I'm running the Hedman 6 into 1 and am happy with the quality, the fit and the added performance.

Just my two cents anyways,

I have the Borla stainless header and cat-back. It is awesome.

Hey Shawn, thanks. Yup, I looked at the BORLA headers online, very nice, but so expensive.

I think that I will go with the Hedman's. The quality seems to be there at a reasonable price that fits my budget.

Yep, very nice looking but 10 to 15 horsepower (and marketers always give you the best-case scenario) if you use the full-length system for over $800 didn't sound like the best use of my funds either.

When those Hedmans die of rust, the stainless steel Borlas will still be going strong!

Same set-up

I'v been running the same set-up (Clifford intake and exhaust-Holley 390) since 2003. VERY happy with it. I have the Borla muffler as well.

Hmmm, that is an interesting take on Headers, rust I mean. The Headers are mostly inside the engine compartment, so I'm not sure how susceptible they would be to rust.

For my own personal set-up, My CJ7 is really a backup for the Cherokee when it isn't running in the winter. And of course it's driven more in the summer. I put about 1500 miles a year on the CJ7. So I'm not sure if rust would be a problem for me regarding the Headers.
