    what they are saying is true-save your money and do it right.Maybe sticking some mufflers directly to the collectors would be within your budget?Anyway-I wanted to point out that it is possible to warp the exhaust valves with a open header-cool air can hit the valves when the engine is shut off.They get very hot when running and the temp diff can be alot.
