They said heads, not headers. Our 96-98 "non-pi" engines suck for performance. The heads are terrible thats why you see the pi swap posts because it involves using heads from 99-04 GTs as well as the intake and cams. I'm not worried about HP as much with my current car thats why I've not done it to mine and I'm probably going to start saving up for a '13-'14 GT once I finish up with these last few payments on my truck. Definitely look at getting some 3.73s in that thing at least then plan on a pi or motor swap if you want to make some decent power.
That would be the way to go for the top end for sure. I've heard somewhere that the IM and the heads just as bolt-ons are a good 25-40hp boost, not sure if this was ever verified or not though.
Ive seen non pi headed 2vs with full bolt ons including long tubes and they only put down 190rwhp not sure what they put down bone stock but long tubes and bolt ons get expensive, first step would be put that money towards the headswap in my opinion.
