        521

        It's a 521 ci Ford! Yea the pipes will be remade so they all come together at the end, to help scavenge. Those were made in a hurry but I like the way they turned out, just kinda fit the look!

          Well thats exactly why I was asking - not that I am an expert on the subject by any means I made a set of upright headers for a figure 8 car once without a collector and was told unless your running injection they actually hurt you. Don't know how true that is but I suppose coming from the source I'd have to beleive him. Regardless we kept them on there because they looked a lot better, but come up with something differnet on the next car. Keep the picture coming Take Care!

            Zoomies have no scavenging. Without forced induction - a blower (fuel injection or carburation makes no difference), they do hurt your output in the lower-mid range. I'd even say they probably don't help you any with a blower, since scavenging benefits forced induction engines too.

            They basically only work at top end, but you sacrifice everything else for that little window of minor gains.

                    reminds me of my lifted '78 ford all covered in mud

                      Your mud truck seems to be in good position, i think minimum weight of Truck & Driver must be 3000 lbs. Vehicles must maintain full exterior truck-appearing body.
                      No tubular chassis; must be built on full truck frame.
                      i hope to see more pictures in future

                            Dont bring the little car with mud tires up in northern maine because you might cry when the real mud trucks come out to play. No just kidding looks good.
