I wish I had a nickle for every person who replaced their OEM header with a UEL header instead of just going "gutted header" to get the same, if not better performance, all for the cost of 3 gaskets.

I would need to give myself one, and in all fairness, I'm not sure what a nickle is worth here in AU.

I have a OEM my17 header sitting in the garage I just haven't heard to many people who went gutted because going aftermarket seems to be what everyone does, so I always figured its the best choice ? I know the 17 is revised and better flowing. What's the sound difference between decat vs catted oem header on a stock exhaust, is it louder, any rasp ?

Mine is full decat with stock exhaust, slighty louder than stock.

Not really raspy, it was raspy as hell with the UEL and full catless.
