Would a certain header make much of a difference?

You don't want a $100 pipe dude. You could buy like 4 different pipes for what that costs.

Why buy 4 different pipes when the one pipe does it all. Great low end awesome top end. Look 100.00 bucks is not cheap it took me about a month to save and get it but it was wel worth it. Here is the web site http://www.bukupower.com/

Look there are planty of pipes out there that cost over 100.00 bucks. Bisson Mufflers, Mugen Seiki, Trinity, etc. All I can say is that I have tried several pipes and this one is awesome. Now to answer your question BUKU sells a small block and big block pipe. It comes with very detailed instructions on tuning and it is actually very easy. Here are some pics of my Jato b4 and after the pipe install. I also through in a pic of my old RC10 GT...

I agree with Tbird or you could get a ribbed pipe from hpi or associated they work great aswell.

It all comes down to what your looking for. The BUKU gives me a kickin bottom end punch, super fast acceleration, and slightly more top end. Now I can place a higher tooth gear for more top speed and not have to worry about losing the bottom end punch. I'm a speed freak. The faster the better. If thats not what your looking for then don't get the pipe. There are cheaper pipes that can increase performance but not like this one can. But thats my personal opinion and i love the thing.
