You know, RPI is suggesting that Header gains come from the primary cat delete. Even if they were the same as a complete header solution, this will really great due to the fact that the whole smog issue can be reversed w/o much labor costs.
I don't mind forking over the $$ for a better mousetrap, especially if it is OEM, produces the same gains and reversible... even if it involves less materials (vs complete headers). To me, that's just like paying for software upgrades... there are no parts... you are paying for R&D.
All things being equal (~same hp), the less aftermarket stuff and the more OEM stuff the better. Awaiting the dyno results...
Do or Do Not. There is no Try.
