Do a little research on how a turbo system works.

Well it looks like it uses factory manifolds , and those headers replace the manifolds.

They will work, but the question is how much improvement will you get

I've been doing a lotta research on this tbh but My question is more about whether or not these headers are compatible with the kit

That's what i picked up from what i've read on this forum but i'm yet to find someone who has this setup or knows if these headers would work better with the kit vs. stock manifold

Any aftermarket shorty header will work, and flow better.

Yes you will see improvement, but just know its like 8 hours or so to install headers.

So is it worth it to you?

The headers are already on the car but i'm itching to go back to stock manifolds because of how much they ruined my exhausts tone (i got motordyne). That's why i'm trying to see if it's actually worth it to have the headers with the turbo

So, one thing to keep in mind... all headers will technically fit but depending on the primary runners routing they can cause clearance issues with the downpipe, I installed DC headers on my car, had major issues getting them to clear the downpipe... had to do some serious "massaging" with a hammer. My buddy installed Megan headers without much issue, I think there was a little difficulty getting the crossover pipe back on though.

That's what i'm worried about tbh. i'm already having slight figment issues with the headers and my exhaust setup (motordyne tdx2 & ART t-pipes).. since they're a bit longer than stock manifolds, they're kind of pushing against my exhaust (Y-pipe and mid pipe are not perfectly aligned because of that). That's why i'm tryna figure out if that's gonna be an issue with the down pipe that comes with the PL kit.
Thanks for your input btw!

Yeah that's inevitable, but the headers make it even worse lol idk could be my taste.
