I'll put it to you this way. The powerlogs sit right between stock manifolds and good headers as far as performance goes. You will feel and here a slight improvement with PEM or powerlogs. The front is really all that needs to be done. The back is much more open then the front. It'* a good first step and cost wise not to bad, perhaps $150 or less when your done. You will also be able to sell them when you go to headers. Changing your front manifold is about a hour job, perhaps more. Exhaust work never goes as planned, trust me I know, I've done a few and even the easy jobs are a pain. Get extra beer, and close the garage door, otherwise the local kids will here some colorful words.
