    If engineered propperly, yes. Most headers give gain in specific parts of the rpm band. Long tube 3 into 1 headers give upper rpm gains. "Tri-Y" headers give low to mid range gains, while shorty headers seem to give a small gain through out the rpm band. In my findings. :)

    Your question should be more like how much HP can I gain, or are they worth the bill.

    But since the day and age of aftermarket mods, everyone knows Headers add HP.

    Once again the question should be How much. Your answer can only come from those that had Dyno'ed.

    Personally, yes they do, love the sound, like the gains, but not happy with quality of JBA. Will soon purchase Doug Thorley Long Tubes.

    Search those names and go from there...:cool:

    i saw that on autoanything.com

    would i see a difference in performance? and if so would it only be in high rpms?

    You'll get even more power gains, if you already have installed, CAI, and Exhaust.
