Long Tube Headers - Do you have a "ticking" sound? Or other annoying sounds?
I'm still on the fence with buying Long Tubes. I was looking at the LG Streets. I love the idea of the great sound and performance but I can't stand annoying sounds or rattles at idle. I've heard that because of their thin walls headers will give you a ticking or sewing machine sound.
Do any of you guys have this sound or any other unwanted noise/vibrations from your LT Headers? How loud is it and can it be heard from the cabin? Only at idle or at speed?
I have the LG LT'S PRO's and there is some ticking at idle (engine firing exhaust in the header noise) yes because of the thin walls,but once you thottle up you can not hear it any more.The noise nothing compared to the gain in power. good luck
So i had to check this out, inside the car I don't hear it, but I do hear valvetrain. Even stock I heard valvetrain noise. I had to pop the hood an tune out exhaust at the back, valvetrain to get a hint of the exhaust pulse noise. but its not something I noticed before personally.....
Well I'm already far from stock. Like I said I have no problem with some sounds outside the car only at idle I just don't like annoying noises/rattles in the cabin while driving. Sounds like LT Headers will work for me. I'll let you guys know how it runs when they are installed.
