Bbk shorty headers

Okay so I just picked up my 94 gt and a friend of mine had an extra pair of shorty headers so he gave them too me.

Now I've heard stories of them either being a pain to install or people losing power with them. So what do you guys think. Install or don't install?

Interesting reading, 5.0 magazine says that shorties are better for daily driving vs. long tubes..

That article makes it seem like the shorties might still have a bit of an advantage.

Since I have them for free anyway maybe I'll install them and see for myself what I think.

I like BBK and had their shortie headers for years with no issues. Sold them off for $100 and got a set of their L/T's. Throw them in your car. You'll be happy.
