I was reading in the "water in baffles" thread and heard a few talk about power loss and rpm change with the addition of baffles.
Is this something all engines will be affected by or just ones built up fairly heavily?
My TX19 has a pretty stock 454. Just a mild cam and a hirise dual plane with a 850 holly and a locked out dist. Thats all I know about it so far.
I have Bassett twisty headers with bassett baffles. The baffles that look like a glasspack inside, not the twisted noodle style.
I have heard that the twisties run a little quieter than other header designs? My friend has twisties with No baffles and its not very loud at all. Is there some truth in the "quieter" theory?
Can I expect to gain any RPMs or power? Or am I just gonna have to pull them and see?
