Default Long Tube Headers Worth It?

Hey I talked to a guy at a Mustang shop and he said for the price of headers and what you really get out of them its not worth it. I dont plan on moding the car that much...I'm trying to figure out if its worth it.

I love my longtubes. I could tell a difference when they were on.

It may not be worth it if you are not planning on doing that much. What exactly are your plans for the car?

I've done a lot of reserch in this area, and i'm doing them in the next few days. Is it worth it? It's a matter of opinion, because of the cost/benefit ratio. Not only do you get some hp, but you get a better sound as well. Then again i'm fairly modded. If it won't kill you financially, i would do it.

If you do what's on your list first, then IMO it's worth it. Do the o/r pipe and headers together to save time and money

They dont add much power but they do make the car sound nice. In the other hand, they are a pain in the *** to install or uninstall, think that if your clutch wears out or ur tranny goes bad you are going to have to deal with them.

I didnt like it.
