    they are suppose to burn up alot of the bad emissions so that less harmfull exhaust will be produced

    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.
