I've been a nabisco member since 2003 and I'd have to say.. 85% percent of the people on N/A are just throwing on exhaust and intakes and calling it a day.. which is precisely what you said, costly and no gains. At least a header like that will have a sexy exhaust tone. Lets count how many peeps on here shelled out over 200 bucks on an useless sound mod intake at some point...
Intakes and exhaust aren't completely useless. They do flow better than stock and will provide gains, especially with a tune. However an aftermarket header that flows the same or slightly worse than the stock unit seems like a complete waste of a couple hundred bucks.

As cool as it is to have the "boxer rumble" people should realize that the turbo cars make that sound for a reason, primarily b/c of turbo placement, and while it is possible to duplicate it (to a degree) on the NA cars it really doesn't gain you anything.
