hello people; I don't know how the stock exhaust manifolds and exhaust components flow to the cat but besides getting these high $$ SS headers why not make a set of HI-FLOW cast manifolds and component upgrade.
What do you think.I know they'll never compete with a real header but I thought it might be a plus for a street car.

I was here first
cast manifolds would cost double the stainless headers because of the cost of tooling and machining at low quanities

hello people; Has anyone studied the stock exhaust manifold in the eyes of modification? Maybe there is a way to improve it. As I said I think headers can be a pain unless you want the best in exhaust flow.

exactly, cast manifolds cost waaaay more to produce than stainless because of tooling. No way a vendor could get a large enough commitment to go forward with it.
