    Headers???

    I have a borla catback and volant CAI, i'm a struggling college student so mods happen very rarely but headers is next and i need to know how much i need to put back. spent alot on the catback bc i wanted her to sound pretty beefy, can i go with some average price headers and improve sound as well as performance? i just want to add some extra hp's but i want her to get a little deeper and bubblier, can good headers do this? what should i get???

    if you look at summit racing on line there are several headers from there some as low at 300 bucks and some as high as 1200 bucks. but one thing i learned is ceramic coating is the way to go. i but some headers a couple years back and they were just painted and rusted out after a year. so i know money is always tight but spend the extra 100 or so and get a decent pair. you will appreciate it in the long run.

    and as for power yes headers are a good step in the right direction

    that depends... i have e-bay headers that are stainless... no rust on them at all... you can always have them sent to Jet Hot to be ceramic coated inside and out... i personally would go with the stainless and when (if he can't afford it now) get them ceramic coated down the road or before install...

    They'll all sound about identical. Whether you run cats or not is what will make the real difference.
