|A header is very important to the exhaust system of your Volkswagen. The purpose of headers, or exhaust headers, as they are commonly known, is to help reduce the back pressure of the engine and allow the exhaust gasses to escape to escape more efficiently and a lot more smoother, thereby increasing your engine's horsepower and torque much more than just stock exhaust manifolds.
Headers are also designed in different exhaust ratios that range anywhere from low end to high end performances and it is important to know the difference when purchasing exhaust headers for your Volkswagen. If you are constantly driving in the city or are constantly pulling loads and want better take off because of it, then you will want to go with a low end torque performance header.
For those of you who are constantly driving at high speeds on the highways and by ways, then the higher end Volkswagen performance headers are what you need.
Exhaust headers are far more efficient than stock exhaust manifolds because the pipes that individually go to each cylinder and allows the exhaust gasses to escape more efficiently and reducing the back pressure in the engine. The pipes then come together into a bigger pipe known as the “collector”. Stock Volkswagen manifold exhausts do not do this. In a stock manifold, the exhaust gases from one cylinder build up pressure in the manifold and that in turn affects the next cylinder that uses the manifold and so on down the line, creating more back pressure and reducing the engine's torque and horsepower in your Volkswagen.
