Default Berk HFC or Stillen headers?

I am buying on of the two tom. because i found a good deal on the headers and i want everyones opinion on what i should do. what are the pros of each and how do the hp numbers stack up on both? and is there any noticeable sound change when you do headers?

I wouldnt touch the headers. Theyre a b**ch of an install and dont provide enough gain. Berk cats are dyno proven at 15 whp if not more. Or wait for the longtube headers to come out if u dont care about emissions.

Yeah...The Berks are guaranteed numbers...Headers? Maybe not so much. They really don't look all that different than stock

I will attest to how much of a pain in the *** the headers are to install. If you don't mind the sound increase, the possibility of throwing a CEL or a visual inspection, then its hi-flows all the way. In terms of adding power, it's probably the best "bang for your buck".

I think if you just throw headers on there (without exhaust and/or cats), you will see decent gains. The thing is, most people got the exhaust and then the addition of the headers, for some reason, doesnt net much more hp.

wait awhile, long tubes are coming out pretty soon, you'll see great power numbers from those no doubt. I got the berks and gained quite a bit of hp and tq.
