Yes, I think it is worth it to buy a new performer. Your engine will be more responsive and more fun to drive. And that Stealth will sell.

Also, that Stealth intake manifold is a total mismatch for a cam of 218I/226E-.514"I/.524E-111/107. Your engine would be better off with a Performer, or a Performer RPM at the outside.

For headers, call Stan at FPA.

What are you going to use this truck for?
