The headers really help alot, Im also running the trans command, I have only the rear muffler on the banks set up, I removed the first one to get a little more tone to the exhaust. You can see on my signature I have done a little more than just the banks system.
The best way to describe just the power pack was like a 1/2 ton pick up, the before was like a V6, with the power pack it was like a V8 .... Only reason the heads got ported and polished is because the great people at camping world cracked the heads putting the headers on, so I paid the extra to have the machine shop do some real head work to it.
Also the ECM has a program on it, and a bigger dual bore throttle body
I know a diesel may get more MPG but I cant afford the cost of gas, let alone diesel thats $1 more a gallon.
None of the mods will probably ever pay in gas milage, but the ability to pass, climb mountians, merge at highway speeds is worth it to me.
With the right work the 460 can be a HP and TQ monster for a gasser.
