Not bad for track car, you won't pass DriveClean without the car's primary catalytic converters.
You'll throw a CEL and your numbers will be a mess.

Mow much loader do the headers make the car and they add much drone?

Your CO and NOx numbers to do with that DriveClean thing you don't need to do... yet.
MTO keeps threatening to implement it province wide.

I would just get a set of secondary cat delete pipes. Similar power gains and no CEL. It's pretty sweet that you guys up north don't have an e-test. I'm selling my Mini to a guy up north and was happy to find out I didn't have get it tested it for him.

The secondary cats are not monitored. 100% impossible to get a cel from removing them.

You might want to check an old thread here on this forum called ( Ebay headers...updates? ). That will give you more info about having a CEL or not for your Boxster. I was also planning on getting a set myself but I have so many new parts laying at my brother's garage that I want to install on my Boxster before buying anymore...

I installed OBX headers I purchased on line just a bit more than Manzo. Mine is a 99 with 2 cat system. No CEL`s.Sound great as for more HP ? Jury is out on that.
