I may be able to pick up some gruppe s headers for cheap and I was wondering if they are worth the buy. I have a tbe and up pipe with a blouch big 16g turbo and sti tmic. Good idea for the headers or not???? Ty all in advance for your answers

16G it's so pretty
Yes they will. Another inexpensive option would be getting your stock ones port and polished. You can keep the rumble and see pretty impressive gains. That should only run you 300 or so with a good thermal coating. Check out crucial racing or grimmspeed for that.
i had equal length headers before and the sound was not as much like the stock boxer sound but by no means is it like a honda. it sounds almost like its a slightly camed v8 or at least thats what mine sounded like. i didn't see much gain and lost some bottom end but i didn't have a tune for the header.
since ## running a larger turbo, u will see some extra horses coming out but not too much. like everyone said, equal length = more power but lose the rumble. Gruppe s actually makes a lot nicer sound difference than other brands. i compared my ebay and megan racing to my frends HKS and his gruppe s(all unequal). Gruppe s has a louder, deeper rumble and u can still hear the turbo whistle at low rpm so ull hav that to look forward too. oh and tune = more power. dont forget heat wrap
