Edelbrock Shorty headers or Flowtech Full length???

Hello,

I was wondering if I should use Edelbrock Shorty headers or Flowtech Full Lenght headers for my Jeep CJ-7 with AMC 304 engine???

Well the flowtech is much cheaper but the edel. looks vey high in quality.

But I heard that Shory headers will drop the torque? Is it so?

I highly appreciate if someone can give me a good advice.

Thanks to all,
Houman

I'd go with the long tube headers.

DoubleVision,

Is there any special reason for that choice you'd make?
What is the disadvantage of shorty headers?

Thanks,
Houman

It depends on your engine setup. But long tubes will always make more power. The size of the cam with determine how much more the long tubes with make. A stock cam the difference will not be much. The power from short tube headers fall in between stock manifolds and long tubes.

Go with longtubes and don't get Flowtech/Dynomax headers, get Hedman or Hookers. The extra money you pay is worth it when you minus all the hassles of cheap headers.
