Header works pretty good for most. If no egr bung then you will get a cel. You can have a shop weld in an egr bung though for pretty cheap. Otherwise you would need a tune to turn off/bypass the egr so as to not get a cel. The svt header does flow better overall and the material used is better than the obx but you may not notice the diff. That shorty header pictured doesn't do much.

No, it doesn't matter if you have an automatic. If you run a straight long tube header without a cat it is going to be loud as Hell. More obnoxious than anyone would probably want to have it. And cruising at highway speeds will make your ears bleed because of how loud it drones on.

/\/\This. I have an 18 inch Magnaflow resonator in place of the rear cat and a Borla muffler on the rear. I only really hear my car while either gassing it or going through the gears. Even then it's not that loud to me. Much quieter than the long tubes and Magnaflows I had on my Mustang
