STOCK EXHAUST MANIFOLD COMPARED TO DC HEADER??

hey guys i have the chance to get a dc header for a steal, now i know overall a header can give u a slight increase in highend power, but i was talking to some guy before and he was tryin to tell me that ill be losing power by putting those on and the only thing itll make the car do is sound better. now see what i dont get is whats the purpose of that it should increase high end power slightly and you figure the inlet would be bigger for the exhaust to flow through, idk what to think any tips or hints?

As far as i know, that brand header doesn't really do much better than the original manifold, there are alot better header brands out there, someone a while back on here mentioned a few of them too

Re: STOCK EXHAUST MANIFOLD COMPARED TO DC HEADER??

If you'd search a bit, you'd find that it's been discussed many times but we'll go over it one more time.
It's the same design and same diameter piping as stock, just shinier.
The guy was partly right. Gains are minimal, like 1-2 hp and people have been known to lose that much or more power.

Keep your stock header on unless you want to dump the cash out for a hytech replica for $500+ or RMF, SMSP, etc. that are all $800+ but all are proven to make considerable gains.
