Do you mean in bad way? No. It actually helps the engine breathe better.

Im worry to reduce the engine life coz the headers somebody tell that will be ( hot ) then this increase engine temperature .


So am worry about the headers .

Headers actually decrease temperature due to better flow unlike the stock restrictive manifolds.

But let me ask you this. If your so worried about performance mods, then why are you buying a vehicle WITH all of these mods?

The only modification I see that may cause concerns down the line is the aftermarket air filter, only because they require more to maintain than a stock unit, and carry a slightly higher risk of complications as well.

With me, the primary concerns are not that the modifications are there, it'* why they are there. Most that modify their vehicles typically use the car under extreme conditions, such as for racing, which requires further scrutiny regarding condition.
