Headers and up pipes?

I was wondering if anyone has installed, is running, or checked out headers and up pipes? If so, any reports if they are worth it? Any true dyno reports? Lowering EGTs?

I ask as I was thinking about getting my OEM manifolds coated, and see that someone has come up with headers and up pipes. I'd rather spend the hard earned cash for other proven upgrades, if these things are not really worth it.

They are outa there mind $995.00. That is ludacris. I can buy 4 sets of equal length shorties for my stang. I am sure it doesent cost any more to make. I would like a pair aswell but for that type of cash I would get either a turbo or injectors. There are a lot of guys on the ORG making a lot of power with stock manafolds.

There is no reason to do those at any point. They look cool, but there is little gain with them...

The Highest HP 7.3's in the country are running stock manifolds (coated and ported for the most part, but stock casting)

What I have heard is a little quicker spool up that is it... I guess it also makes it sound a little cooler...

I tried calling and talking to the guys and all they said is that they might help take some of the heat out of the head. they told me to go on to another forum and ask the guys on there that run them how they were. so far i have had no response. I also asked if they had any dyno numbers for them and they do not. so.... they make a cool noise and spool the turbo a bit quicker..... thats about all my research has turned up this far.

From what I have learned and heard, headers are of little gain to diesels. Some mild porting and smoothing out any casting defects are really all that is needed. JetHot or other coating can help to keep heat in and will thus spool the turbo quicker. So that would be my route...
