Get properly sized headers.
Did you ever use a manometer and determine your back pressure. That determines your exhaust flow. That is not crap.

Some people bolt on headers and claim magnificent gains. I never saw.

I have had the luxury to play with dynometers for a long time. Unfortuneately never really using them going past 6000 rpm. For me and hydraulic cams that seemd like a threshold for power . A wall if you pass there are serious expensive changes, first being fuel. 93 octane did not do any good past 6000.

Money is power and makes the power. That is also a solid truth. What are you doing and how far are you going. 100mph through the traps is not far.
