Hey
fellow newb here also

What type of headers for which engine. Have you done an engine swap or using factory engine? Sometimes headers can cause you to lose hp but gain torque. It all depends on the design of the header and what vehicle it is going on.
Generally speaking:
4-2-1 headers gain torque and hp in the low to mid rpm's
4-1 headers gain torque and hp in the high (4000+) rpm's

What other type of mods have you done on your car?

always view the dyno charts, and be sure that you read the fine print... better still, look at the dyno charts from sport compact car and other mags, as they often do back to back testing of many headers.

this is true ,

but a good exhaust setup along with the header will help alot , porting your head is good if you are upgrading your cams , but it is more of an upgrade -to an upgrade , not needed on a stockish type motor , you would be better off getting a good intake , maybe a throttle body , instead ....

you have to be able to take in as much as your pushing out ... ya know !!

i would go with a 1 piece 4-2-1 setup and mandrel bent exhaust , you will see more benefit from that ..(my opinion )

Just from personal experience, decide on which setup you want to run and stick to it. If you are going to go with a b20/vtec, then don't bother spending money on a header for the d-series. Take your time, do your new setup then buy a bad *** header for the new motor. Best of luck
