What are the best headers in your opinion?

I'm looking into getting some headers soon, but there are a few out there. I like borla headers, but I won't knock any other ones. Just looking for some helpful advice.

I heard the Tomei UEL header is pretty nice. I plan on getting a header soon too!

Depends on what tune you end up with. If you're going OpenFlash, it's hard to beat their header because the tunes are specifically calibrated to that header's runner lengths, meaning you'll probably make the most power with one of these. If you're custom tuning, obviously there are a lot more options.

Most headers for this platform make roughly the same power after a DD safe tune within about 8 WHP. So differences tend to come down to design (UEL vs EL), construction, materials, and price. Generally speaking a more expensive header tends to have better construction than a cheaper one to a point. After which, like any consumer good, you start paying for the name.

Testing is still ongoing but so far the results have been huge for 86/brz platform.

Gruppe-s is a great option and price is just right for the quality.

JDL UEL has unbelievable build quality and sounds orgasmic. Completely eliminates the torque dip, too, with a tune.

In terms of UNequal headers, look at JDL or Tomei.
