Need some help...

So I see someone found a way to out new headers in our mk3 but what's the Pros and cons of doing so? Is it easy for a novice mechanic ? Or should I take it to a shop?

Pros better flow and more power

Cons:
probably sounds bad
I'd recommend it with a tune
There isn't a header made for our car yet. F2 fits but is slightly short.


Wait for injected's header
