Just got some nice BBF Bassett twisties from german1. Changing from Nicson logs. What kind of power increase can I expect? Bassett website says 15%. That is considerable. True or not?

In all honesty, it totally depends on the rest of the setup. The only time you will see a substantial increase going to headers is if your combo really needs the extra breath-ability of the less restrictive pipes...

It would also depend whether or not muffles are used, if you need to muffle things down to where you are with the logs, it will be a wash... :-\

I always recommend headers from a performance standpoint, it just depends on how the boat is used and set up... :thumbup:

You can expect to not talk to anyone in your boat again. Headers are loud, and you can expect to get burned more than once. ;D

Also, watch and read your plugs after the install. The increased flow is worth it, IMO, but more outflow needs more inflow, THERE'S where you'll see the gains. Not just from the headers.....  :sly:

Not gonna get into the noise debate. These things are just plain loud no matter what exhaust you're running....... :screwy:
