Is there anyone fabbing up this piece and selling it?

Im assuming there would be a market for it, and it would fit quite a few applications. Ive got something like that in mind for my truck. But I also know welding is not one of my best skills, and usually I leave that stuff to the pros

Default Axle ratio tire size

When you went 202mph, what trans gear did you run, what axle ratio do you have and what tire diameter did you run?
Thanks, Peter

this will be just for looks... you guys think there will be any problems with these shortys? The plan would be to cut the ends off, add some length then weld on the v bands. Im assuming if I do that, I can keep the alternator down low in teh stock position.

For an 02 - 05 5.3L Avalanche. Only 200 bucks.

The problem with forward facing tubular headers is that one of the primaries usually will hit the steering shaft. So if you dont mind cutting up a primary and moving it around a little bit, it should work.

also the factory manifold will hold in heat better since it is cast iron... which would help spool

I was reading the magazine congrats by the way and I was wondering if your turbo was a t6 it said that the t4 wasn't giving you enough I've been chatting with a turbo company and they said the t4 would put be at 1000 rwhp on my 6.0 with a 3.90 stroke and can run up to 7400 rpms without choking out
