I have owned vehicles and put long tube headers on them only to have ground clearance issues later. The headers scrapped the ground going over speed bumps etc. The challenger sits fairly low IMO.

Have you guys experienced any issues with long tube headers scrapping the ground after installation?

None. I installed JBA long tubes on my 16 Scat Pack with no issues. The NOWEEDS cutouts lost me almost 5/8” though. But so worth it!

Running long tubes on 2 challengers. Stainless Power, not even close to scraping

Stock, no issues.

Jbas on mine and I’ve got about 3” ground clearance at the collectors now that I’m lowered. I hit the occasional speed bump.

Thanks for the inputs. So, I guess if I don't lower the vehicle I shouldn't have to worry about it.

Atleast on my headers, they aren't the lowest part of the car so even lowered they wouldn't scrape

My ’15 SRT is lowered a fuzz over an inch with Kooks and works as good as can be expected. I had the shop weld small skid bars on the bottom of the tubes just in case. Sure I tickle the belly on occasion but no more than before installing the long tubes.
