Mike D. wrote to us, inquiring about our replacement headpipes and how they stack up to the factory pipes, as far as heat displacement (blueing).

Our explanation:

The reasoning behind “blueing” is the condition of the motor and how it is set up. Perfect tuning plays a big part. Yes, the double line pipe does assist in heat displacement. We have two header systems to choose from; the stainless set or the chrome plated set that DOES have a thick wall but it is NOT double lined as the originals pipes were.
