Long tube headers cost a lot of money for a pretty small gain, maybe 10 hp if that.
As mentioned you will get much more gain from gears and tires.

You can keep the stock exhaust manifolds and...

That's a nice run but the launch at the hit looks soft and the 60' time is slow for the ET.

For that MPH I'd expect a 60' in the 1.5 range or so and an ET of around 10.5 or so.

I'm assuming you...

It sounds like you have a sticky EGR valve. This happens as they get carbon built up in them.

You can try cleaning it but might just need to replace it.
