E36 Performance Headers

Just curious to hear about everyone's opinion on adding aftermarket performance headers to an E36 engine? Any ideas on performance gains? How about exhaust noise increases? Is this a mod worth looking into for an E36 w/ the inline-6 engine?

It's definately not the first mod you should do. Basically in my opinion look into headers once you've done the following.

M50 intake manifold
track pipe/high flow cat
ASC delete
Fan delete
Bored Throttle Body

The headers will give you a little more power, but not really worth the expense until you've really made the engine breath/spin easier first.

Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, Iím Nelson, and Iím a drivaholic."
