Why do you want headers? Just curious. The Down Pipe (DP) is the next logical option with a tune/engine management (EM). Which cold air intake btw?

A header is the last thing you should be getting then. When you're at least stage 2 and have another $1,000-1,300 to spend then it would be something to consider. I'm making 400 whp on the stock header, though if I wanted to go for more power on my current set up this would be my next purchase.

Start your own thread? Not to be a d!ck. But, don't encroach on someone else's thread.

you need EM the second you bought the car. more so with that CAI!

as for a header id put it right up there with a DP. both will increase power and they give huge TQ numbers. the stock design is awful!! only thing is a DP costs a quater the price and if i bought another header itd be a killer B made of 321SS but they're $1300 so even more of a price gap between that and a DP.

Is this to something I said before? I think I remember saying that about CAI just being a piece of pipe.
