whats up, im new to this site and i need some questions answered, i have a 93 z-24 with a straight pipe, performance muffler, and a k&n filter. if i put y-duals on would it create more horse power, any ideas on what i should do. how much are headers, how much hp do they put out roughly. how much is a chip, im basically lookin for the small stuff right now.

Putting on Y duals may look cool, but it isnt going to gain you any power. They only way to gain power from duals to do true duals, 2 pipes from the headers all the way back. I dont think there is enough room to run the pipes though without tons of work. About headers, nobody really makes a set. I found one guy that custom makes sets for the 3.1 beretta i beleive. Cant remember the site, but they ran about $600. Not cheap! Not sure what kinda gains you would get. As for chips, they run around $150 - $200, depending on what you get and who you get it from. I would recommend Fastchip ( http://www.fastchip.com ). Gona have to use Primo gas though. The fastchip should gain you around 10 HP. Good Luck

thanx for the tips, since y duals doesnt add any power does it take any away, my friend has a camaro muffler on his crx and its just one muffler that goes into dual exhaust, do you think that would work on mine???

thanx

No, it shouldnt take away any power. You should be able to get a setup like that if you find a competant exhaust shop

Check out my exaust setup. I have a 40 series delta flow with dual outlets. Honestly man... I have no cat, and when I put the muffler on, I lost power. Well, maybe not lost... maybe transferred. I dont know. My low end suffered alot, but i think I have more high end now, which is nice because I had practially none at all before. I belive I need some more backpressure, but I am gonna leave it how it is until I put a chip on or something and see what happens. Sounds great and looks great though.
