Thumbs down

Need more power! So i'm looking into getting some new BIGGER headers for my 1982 320i. The stock headers aren't cutting it anymore and are pritty damn rusty. So if anyone has any suggestions into headers for my car i would appreciate it!

If it's only surface rust, then you could just as easily port it a little with a Dremel or something and polish the inside. New headers are a fairly large investment for something you're only going to take full advantage of after a lot of other modifications.

The thing is a already have a new intake on it as well as a bosal exhaust for mass air flow so new headers seems the next step to new power for me!

Oh. Well then.
I've heard good things about Ireland Engineering's shorty headers.

irelandengineering.com has a really good set of headers

and bavauto.com has a goood set of headers also, be sure to check those out.

and gettting them ceramic or sterling will be good.

your still going to lose all your bottom end, which isnt much on a 320. You should probly invest your money on getting your head shaved, or buying some new pistons. Bolt ons dont do crap for bimmers.
