Evolve vs Supersprint headers

Hello guys,
I've done search and read some posts here but I was curious what is the general consensus which ones are more worth it. Anybody here got Evolve recently? My understanding is that they don't offer 4-2-1 anymore, just the 4-1.
Even though I only have M62, I still believe it'd benefit from either headers. I still can't believe that 3.0L 215HP M60 and 4.9L 394HP share the same headers.
Thanks for any input.

^ This. I've had SS, Evolve (and now Dinan) headers. The delta between SS and Evolve is amazing; the low-end torque bump comes on a lot sooner, too.

So you're preferring Evolve as well?

Yes. I only moved to Dinan headers so I didn't have to ever fight CA C.A.R.B when it's smog time. If it weren't for that, I'd still have the Evolve headers for sure. Definitely worth the money.

I'm aware that gain will be probably be lower on M62 but I'm willing to be sort of guinea pig as I'm yet to here of anybody with Evolve on their 540. Thanks.

Get the Evolve. I have SS and been smogged with no problems the last three times. The headers are tucked so well, they don't see them. I just got smogged yesterday at a STAR-certified station and had zero issues.

Had them and loved them. Got a good deal on Dinan headers, and Jeff @ Dinan was nice enough to send me an EO sticker, so I never have to deal with smog visual again.

While the chances of getting spotted are certainly low, I just don't have time for that BS...
