    Here's a pic of Tom's PC with those old headers

    Jim at Rewarder says that his Zoomies work great on a lot of N/A motors.

    Mike you might be headed in the right direction , been told they don't work well on NA setups , still just love the look however ..

    I agree about them bad ass looking!! But why do they build them so high up? It seems like running valves or doing anything with the carbs could be a bit tight.

    That's exctalily what I wanted to hear, and coming from a racer that knows a few things.
    Here lies the issue, I know he will gain a couple ponies going to a longer header, his deal is he wants to be different AND make more power, I told him either a Bassett or Rewarder twist style is the best bang for the buck even though they are a common style header, right now he is leaning toward a custom twist style header from lemon just to be different.
    i just couldn't justify spending the extra money for the little difference (hp and looks) a Lemon is going to give him over a Bassett or Rewarder.
    IDK, he's tought to persuade when he has his mind set....

    I needed to bump this thread for my brother so he could see some photos of Lemon headers.
    Anyone with header knowledge, what would be the advantage of going with a set of lemon headers with a 5 week build time and more expensive price then let's say a Bassett twistie or Rewarder twistie header?
    Right now he runs Rewarder upsweeps, he is looking to quiet the motor down a tad and possibly gain a couple hp doing the switch.
    And he will be running no water to either header.
    Anyone know?
    Thanks,
    Trevor.
