Dont get headers. I have the GReddy headers and there was no significant gain. Definitely not worth the money unless you are gonna go all out and turn your car into a monster. The money would be much better spent on engine management or save toward a new turbo/FMIC.

i got headers, i like them, but unless your car is like, at, or above stage two id say you'll see no gain, id get a turbo kit (comes with injectors, turbo, and fuel pump.) i think i saw one over on extremepsi.com i think ,but before ya get that id say tex is right with utec first.
i think i read headers start to lose power as they get hotter. basically just get get a port and polish on the stocker and your set, or extrude hone. wish i could aford the latter

Headers are great! they lower your egt's near the head and do make good hp after youve done upipe and turboback. I love my gruppe s header.
