Nothing wrong with sharing your experience so nobody should give you any hell.... I've heard good and bad about the Hooker headers (some say they will slow you down if you don't have at least a low 11 high 10 second car and others say they won't).... My brother put a set of Poston's headers and crossover on his high to mid 11 second car and didn't notice any gains but he did mention there seemed to be better throttle response and spool up dunnoTWIN86GNS:
I know that I am going to catch some hell over this but when our car was running a best of 11.89 we put a set of Hooker Headers on and our best time dropped to 11.74 and we gained about 1.5 mph in the quarter. At that time we were running a "Stage 2" turbo (virtually a stock turbo with a .82 exhaust housing). We did notice that our O2 sensors didn't seem to last as long until we wrapped the headers with header wrap.
