Headers on a non e-gas

Has anyone changed out their factory headers on their non e-gas? If so what type of results did you come up with? How much did you pay to install?

I did the headers on my 99 non e-gas, S-car-go headers. I noticed more pull all the way through to the limiter and definately sounds like a tuned car now. As for the install. Do it yourself if you have the time. It should only take about 30 minutes and some new gaskets. DO NOT FORGET TO PULL THE POWER STEERING LINES AWAY FROM THE NEW HEADERS. ------MOST AFTERMARKET HEADERS WILL BE TOO CLOSE AND MELT THEM AND CAUSE A FIRE------ I did this by mistake and got lucky. I melted the lines and had a flare up and it went out with in 2 seconds. No damage just new lines.. 1000dollars from the stealership.
