depending on what car u have. u wont get the most power gains from an exhaust. people usually pay for the sound and weight savings

Not worth it, spend your money elsewhere (SUSPENSION). If you want exhaust sound just buy a universal muffler and get it welded up.

no offense or anything but if you are looking for powergains from a 2.5 4cyl...ya exhaust and things like that will do it, but not compared to a faster car obviously.

Who said anything about a 2.5 I4?
The boy's got a 2.7 I6; but you're right, it's an economy engine.

Actually, you can get close to 20 horsepower from a chip alone on an Eta.
That's about the only modification that'll make such a difference though.

About the least-expensive headers you'll want to bother with are a little over $250, but you can pay as much as $800. If you really want a sports car (which is not quite what a 325es was meant to be), and you'd spend the dough for a really nice set of headers, then just buy a 325i motor and do a head conversion. There are all sorts of conversations about that in this forum, you might search for them.
