Default Headers?

So it seems to me that the only thing left to put into my engine with out doing anything crazy is to put some headers on it. What are the best headers to put on my truck? I've already got an intake, chip, exhaust.

I put JBA headers on my 02'. Threw on a Magnaflow exhaust. Woke it up a little and gave it a cool sound.

Default Re: Headers?

I am looking into the same thing too. I really havent made a decision on what brand to go with but I would like to go with something that will last a while and sound good and maybe even go with dual pipes and run them out the back like 01_Ranger_4x4 (Patrick)

ive heard running a true dual setup from the headers actually decreases performance because of a back pressure loss, maybe im wrong? I think some JBA's would sound good

backpressure means nothing. the only thing remotely close to that term is exhaust scavenging. True duals will not give you any hp benefit on the Ranger, as it flows well enough already that adding a catback and headers will only have minute affects on power.
