If you have a supercharged V8 at around 6psi, it'll add around 50 hp.
You won't get the kind of results out of headers on a BMW engine that you would on, say, an LS1 or similar American muscle. In addition, headers for a BMW engine are usually rather pricey. Dinan headers for the V8 are over $10K. Supersprint are more reasonable, but have a reputation for cracking.
