turbo bolt on???

i just ordered my hellion kit and i was wondering if i should bother buying aftermarket headers or a upper intake or if i should just stick with the stock stuff

all i will have is stock everything minus the flowmaster cat back and the hellion 62mm kit

any advice would help thanks

get a new catback. flowmasters and turbos are NOT a good combo.

Oh and some good rear tires lol.

Headers? The turbo kit comes with 'headers'

i looked at the list and didnt see that it came with headers.. if it does great..

im gonna try to drop the back of the car a little with fox body rear springs.

i am probably going to pull the flowmasters off and put dynomax bullet mufflers in place and retain the tail pipes

Yeah, all turbo kits I've seen come with a set of 'headers' since the turbo needs to be mounted on either one. As for the catback, ditch the Flows, they'll hold back your power big time.

I looked and found a pic of their kit and it comes with 1 header that looks like a regular shorty header. I think they might use 2 shorty style headers and merge them or something. IF I rember correctly someone once told me hellion and maybe cartech had kits that use shorty style headers, maybe you re use 1 of your stock headers or maybe one is just not in the pic lol. either way its a turbo kit so your exhaust is covered to atleast the catback.

I would go with ultraflo's over bullets. just me

On the fox kits, Hellion uses one shorty style header for the driver side, and one log style header/manifold on the passenger side.

i'd keep everything stock first, run the turbo, then when you kill your block, then upgrade.

It depends on what year car the Hellion kit is for as to whether it uses the factory style headers or something they provide. For the kits that use the factory style headers they claim that they saw no benefit in their testing with going with aftermarket ones.

stock T5 won't last long with a turbo. I'd upgrade that at the same time but i know money can be tight at times.
