I like headers. They flow better than manifolds and they sound cool. Just the fact that they separate each exhaust port and reduce reversion helps tremendously. They are one of the biggest bangs for the buck there is. Manifolds have their place for sure. They pretty much last forever, like bad furniture. They have great ground clearance. If you have a stock or close to stock engine, they might be for you, but they ain't about makin power. Never have been.
