Default header question?

Been thinking about doing this? Is there a benefit in changing to high performance headers ??

Unless you upgrade the intake and exhaust as well, you won't be taking full advantage of the headers performance gain. Even after I upgraded everything including porting the heads, my rear wheel HP gain was just over 20 from stock.
You'd actually see more of a performance gain by getting a tuner rather than just bolting on a set of headers.

JBA or Doug's headers makes a set for the ranger. Those are whom I'd recomend. It will take a while for them to be installed to. Plus I'd also see about a tuner as well because even with all of those mods, you still won't gain alot. Just enough to notice really.
