    Not quite decided about whats kind of headers to buy.

    I'm looking deep grow and some HP gain. :D

    From what i'm reading here and there seems that my best shot is Thorley headers. I know this subject has been repeted over and over but I have done the search, read everthing I could find.
    I will be looking for a SC also in the near futur if anybody sees one send me a link

    thx

    I guess nobody has an opinion on these two set of headers?
    I want to make a move today, would really appreciate if someone gave me a pointer. performance vs sound...
