1-OE was a simple manifold/dump system
2-headers (or manifold even worse) had primary cats built in

Either scenario replacing these by a tuned set of regular headers would yield big gains.

Taking a set of OEM headers with no cats leaves no room to be gained on the stock engine. Add 150hp then I am sure there is room for improvement.
