summit tech says longtubes are worthless

a summit tech today asked me "why do you want those longtube headers anyway? truck engines react the same to shorties as to long tubes." i told him i have always heard the opposite, but hes sure that shorties are just as efficient in creating power as longtubes, and claims he has seen this proof. he wasnt trying to sell me anything, he just told me not to waste my money on longtubes. :dunno:

I'd start going elsewhere for your performance advice.

i wasnt calling to ask which headers i wanted, i know i want longtubes(looks like ASMs for sure now). i was just asking if the pacesetters will fit a AWD truck. thats when he asked me why would i want longtubes blah blah blah......... i didnt talk to him any longer than that. i just thought i would share that with you guys.

iam just confused at why summit would have their techs sayiing such things.

 

i get my tech advice from you guys, :thumbs: come on now....who do you think i am.

I'd actually like to see someone do a test with both to see just what kinda performance differance there is....come on Dylan ;) Even if it is only g-tech times...It would be interesting to see the range of numbers put out with each(0-60 and 1/4 mile) :thumbs: But if you have the money, do the long tubes...if not, shorties will give you performance too. :D

I went from shorties to long tubes...

All I can say is Holy Sh!t ! ! !

The shorties had some gain, the long tubes are a knockout! :thumbs:

Get yourself a nice set of long tubes, I went with the group buy on the Dynatechs.

Best money I've dropped in a long time.

 

WW :cool:
