Default Anyone with Cobb 2.5 and borla headers?

Like the title says. i want more power, but i don't like lag. will the borla headers add enough mid range power (i know that its supposed to add top end) that i won't miss the few 100 rpm earlier spool?

has anyone with this setup dynoed their car?

I hope you like your new headers.

I have Borla headers on my 2.5 but I don't know if I am a good person to ask.. As of lately with more and more stop and go city driving, the lag is starting to get to me. Probably with the turbo more then the headers, but when I installed the headers I didn't notice much of a lag incrase at all. And the top end was nice. Get em.

The gains will be nearly identical.
