Just remember air can only come in as fast as it goes out. Also, a strong clean exhaust pulse can really draw in a lot of extra air through the intake.

There's a lot of things you can do to your car to get you some power but your engine is already being choked by the exhaust.
Thanks for that,will have a go at making my own headers then, im going to
change carb and advance cam, do you think I will get near 400 horsepower?
