i got a Question...what if i am aiming at scenario 2 but my intake is an SRT? will gains be the same thing or will i actually see a slightly more Hp? Now the srt does sacrifice noticeable low end power so im assuming that i should just get long runner headers and keep increasing my top end. Or would it make more sense to get a short runner to get back what i lost down low? All im doing is so i choose a good header right of the bag till i S/C my car.

Thank you for the write up, it is most helpful. Clearly, you are very knowledgeable in this area.

Would you happen to know if the Megan header is a shorter run relative to the other headers: toyomoto, mazzuri, xerd? I can't seem to find any specs o those. It seems the Megan is the only one that is available, new.

More info on headers,,,

Megan Header and Ypipe:
Pipe diameter 58mm

Xerd Header and Ypipe:
Pipe diameter 55mm

Toyomoto Ypipe:
Pipe diameter 50mm
This was a V1 Toyomoto, flat coated, not Stainless Steel. The V2 toyomotos were SS and just rebranded HPs. Not sure if the measurements are exactlythe same... you should measure your toyomoto Ypipe and see if it clocks in @ 50mm.

OBX Header and Ypipe:
Pipe diameter 49mm
