Mostly for eco purposes. HOWEVER, the engine is engineered to have them in place. Removeing them can cause "exhaust scavenging" issues.

headers will give you better flow/producing better HP. they have nothing to do with emmisions.

I think they would be a good idea. IFrom what I have learned, The DT shorties are tuned to maximise the scavenging of the exhaust a little better than the factory headers. I havent tested them myself, yet, but I plan on doing so in the future.
