Your engine's an air pump. More air in ,more air out. Less restrictions = more flow. More flow= more HP.

They do make tubular headers, aftermarket highflow cast manifolds and you'll even hear about welding the turbo flange to a tbi exhaust manifold to make a homemade 'header'.

These aren't rod-shifter friendly.

You can port your own or pick up one from a vendor. They are pretty reasonable.
Look in the for sale section here... people got them usually.

then you want to get a 89+ factory 2.5 inch swingvalve or an aftermarket 2.5 or 3 inch. You wanna definately ditch that little downpipe you got for a 2.5", or better yet, 3".
Go 3" straight thru all the way to the back. Muffler choice is subjective... Ask around.

And when you are out of boost, you will want it even more(I know, I miss my CSX:nodding: and can't wait til I have her back on the road!)
I'll drink to that!:thumb:
