I just bought a crashed swift gti with 4-1 inox headers, (see photo)

I'm wondering if i should put them on my swift gti. I'm afraid i'll lose power at low rpms, I don't go past 4000rpms a lot of times.

Should i keep the stock ones or should i put this 4-1 header?

Thanks in advance, sorry if this post isn't where it should be

oh my oh my
You'r not releasing the awsome-ness of the SSGTi DOHC 1.3 16 valve engine if you don't go pass the 4000rpms
this head will bring you more joy I have both 4-2 and 4-1 header and like the long tube 4-1 header
Thats me........and I aften go above 4000 rmp and I think the car runs better up in that power range

Thanks for answering!
It's my daily car :P i need to have some great mpg with it along with the fact that i dont have any circuit near to go with the car and in my town i would be without license shortly :? , so i cant just think about going fast. I just want to make sure that i wont lose a "lot" of power in low rpms, and when i floor the pedal it will make up for putting these 4-1 headers into it

If you need a daily driver for low speeds . Then you know the answer. "put your stock on" And sell your header HERE =)

the swift is meant to be driven past 5500! think of it as a mild gsxr =) and you'll still have good mileage

come on.. if you shift at 6500, rpm's will fall too low after shiff if you use stock box.. rev it to atleast 7-7.3k :twisted:

i'm back on stock box and engine for only 1 week and i already miss my 4.92fd, torsen lsd and 210/340 cams :roll:
