Stock headers are good, if u switch to long tubes with a ORX pipe u may gain 5 more hp but remember you will lose tq due to much airflow

That's absolutely not true. You will not lose any torque.

It's true a couple of my friends gains was less than 10hp by adding LT headers with a x pipe. The stock is good enough

well now you're changing your statement, you said originally, you lose low end power, which is not true........

No I said u will gain power, but might lose tq, similar to the boss mainfold gaining 15-20hp but losing 10-20tq cause of the amount of air going thought is to much

Dude it's painfully obvious you don't know what you're talking about. Just quit before you dig your hole any deeper.

I know what I'm talking about, I been messing around engines and cars for 15+ years. I seen and dyno a lot of cars by adding mods, it will add hp and tq but to much airflow will lose low end tq all the way thought to red line that's why the boss intake gains tq only at 7,500+ rpm when some cars doesn't shift at so it's pointless and same as LT headers
