Does this just bling up the engine compartment or does it offer some performance upgrade?

Speaking from personal experience just adding the header is basically bling in order to gain any type of performance gain you must upgrade the entire exhaust system . I first installed a Magnaflow cat back then when I purchased the header I also upgraded the catalytic converter to one from Performance Autowerks and had the car tuned .

You have to have a tune to gain any power advantage, as the stock tune has torque and power limits programmed in. (The notorious and mis-named "learn-down" feature.) An aftermarket tune raises the limits to allow performance enhancements to be effective.

Tried to buy but only takes money orders or bank to bank transfer. No protection for the buyer. So I walked away. Is a legit part though.

If anyone is interested, I go through Siloam Springs 2-3 times a week. Would be happy to stop in and check it out.
