how much will new headers help?

I got a airaid intake put into my 2012 aswell as a magnaflow catback exhaust.
I'm stuck between getting new headers or black front lights or even 185$ for a new hood scoop.

Will headers make me faster? Louder?

More noise that's for sure.
Idk about gains but mpg will take a hit ,since you will be stepping on it almost always.
Installing some 3rz lce headers soon on my truck ,will report back.

well headers will for sure make you louder so you may seem a bit faster haha. and he ment mpg will take a hit as in nose dive into the ground...when you have something where you like the sound of it your going to step on it to hear it more which means mpg will be dropping pretty fast.

Depends on the headers. Long tubes would take away some low end power while opening up top end. O2 simulators are a must. The exhaust would get raspy since the front cats are tossed and you won't be emissions legal.

Short tubes would help in all RPM ranges but less at top end. No O2 simulator is needed but you so have to cut the stock cats off of the stock manifold and weld them onto the headers.
