Headers

I have a 2010 RS and I'd like to know, will headers make a big difference or just add a little more performance? I just installed a NPP exhaust so can I connect headers to my current exhaust? Pretty sure I would need a tune if I installed headers? Just trying to see if the money spent would be worth it. I don't need a race car just something that when I punch it it will move, it already does pretty good as a stock V6

Can't answer the NPP question but when I was N/A l, the headers were my favorite mod by far, big boost in performance. I have the ceramic coated BBK's and love them. A tune isn't mandatory but recommended. You'll get a CEL sooner or later without one.

I watched a video by BBK and they showed a dyno chart proving something like a 30 HP gain just from long tube headers (everything else stock). The NPP is just a catback so there should be no issue tying in headers.

That ad was laughed at on here for quite some time.
Expect about 15 H.P. gain for long tubes. You will get a check engine light unless you have a tune to ignore your cat trouble code.
