20-30rwhp with shorties?

Is this typical? If you can bolt on 20-30rwhp for around $900 that has to be the cheapest hp you can buy. The graph is for 04, I wonder if the gains are comparable for the 05/06.

i wonder that too, i already brought this issue up about the performance of shortys compared to long tubed and a lot of the guys here hands down say long tube is the way. but here in southern cali i cant risk it cause of emmissions and im looking toward shortys which are a lot better then nothing. is anything im think atleast 10-15, or 15-20 if the graph is a lie

If you live in SC don't bother with shorties, go with Long Tubes, they cost a bit more, but they are worth it.

I run the Kooks 1 3/4 with offroad pipes, and have run a 12.7 @ 107 on All Season tires with just exhaust and Volant for power mods.

i agree, you guys are lucky to run full long tube headers without a problems, i cant afford to take that risk since breaking any law involving emissions is a serious crime
