We are testing a standard 4-1 merge collector, but given the quality of the OE header we do not expect to see much improvement with this configuration. The Tri-Y is expected to give a fatter torque curve, but the install may become a little costly as a metal cat will be required.
I figured you wouldn't see much gains with new headers as the stocks are already pretty efficient being they don't have cats welded into them like the 46.
