You can get the headers at ClubGP for about that much or new ones off Ebay for less. It is also going to depend on the downpipe.... It might just bolt directly into the stock exhaust.

Personally I don't think headers are a great idea on a NA car anyway. I would go with a powerlog instead.

Maybe you may want to look into S&S headers- they're a little bit smaller (and still fairly cheap)- plus they have a 2.5" DP- would probably better for a mild NA application. Are you planning on doing a top swap anytime soon?

I agree about the power log manifold. I have one. Pacesetters will cause me to lose torque, because of their large primaries. I don't recommend headers without boosting it 1st.

no- the rear is already tubular steel and isn't really all that bad. The front is a cast piece and is fairly restrictive compared to the rear- so a lot of people just do a front PLOG.
