Default Aftermarket Headers...Worth it?

Hi All,

Are the good quality aftermarket headers worth the money, I am thinking of buying some Tomei Twin Scoll headers off Rexnet.......Is there much gain over factory headers?

cheers in advance

Definitely the biggest increase I have seen is Ed's car, boostED82.

Performance > Boxer Rumble. In my opinion it sounds better with after market headers.

I had equal length, twin scroll Tomei's on my STi, and it sounded different to other equal length header cars. It sounded bloody angry on full noise. Do it!
