How do you guys like these headers? The Edelbrock website is claiming 28 rwhp and 34 rwtq from these things - which I find a little overstated. Don't numbers like that usually come from longtubes? Did you feel a significant difference?

I am thinking of getting headers before the cam (probably KRC 210), and realize to see the full benefits of a cam, I need to open her up. Thank you in advance.

I am undecided between the TES and the Pacesetters. They are about the same price, but my guess is the Pacesetters would cost a little more overall since you'd need to relocate some things during the install.

o.k. yesterday i went and smoged my truck. passed (forgot about the headers) the edelbrock are a easy install, they say there shortys but more like mid-lenths.. just make sure you cut the pipe before thw cat strait. the other headers will be a problem for smog and over extending the sensor wires.. i tow a 24tt and i like how the power is smoother comming. plus they look bitchen.. A+ good luck on your decision.

I love my edelbrock headers. Easy install. Awesome look and they really make my truck scream in the highers rpms. And no loss down low. I give them an A+

I like the long tubes myself. Why wouldn't your truck pass smog with LT's? I haven't heard anything about that. :huh:

Mine made more difference than my superchips, or anything else so i was extremeley happy. Really i was suprised, and i actually called Edelbrock an asked them about those numbers, the guy said they used the same dyno, and on most other engines they saw about 10HP and 15lbs/TQ, but he said for some reason on the Hemi it showed much better numbers than anything else.

Which part numbers is everyone using for 04 5.7 4x4? I've searched Summit and have come up with multiple edelbrock systems 65692,66793 and am getting a little confused. Thanks.

The Edelbrocks make as much HP as the longtubes, but the long tubes give you more torque down low.
I've got the Edelbrocks and from 3000 to 6000 rpm they make big power over stock!
I'm guessing long tubes kick in earlier than that.

Thanks. I was getting numbers mixed up with the shorty headers and TES.

I think you guys pushed me toward the TES. I'd love to do longtubes, but I don't want to deal with redoing my exhaust if it fails smog. I am taking you word on this one that they provide a noticeable difference!

They will be my next mod.

Defenitely sounds like a future mod. For those who have installed these already, did you use the gaskets & bolts edelbrock gives you or did you use stock, aftermarket ones?
