The BMW 3-Series is well-known for its powerful, efficient engines; however, there is still room for improvement when it comes to power. The so called ‘back pressure’ or resistance that burnt gasses encounter in the exhaust system greatly affects your vehicle’s performance and power output. Specifically designed headers can significantly reduce the back pressure and add to the output of the engine. A performance header replaces the factory-installed exhaust manifold, which was designed with cost efficiency and underhood space constraints in mind. The header reduces restriction and helps push the gases out of the engine faster, thus allowing for more horsepower.

The improved design of headers over exhaust manifolds helps to lower the back pressure to a minimum, while special materials and protective coatings considerably extend their longevity. In addition, thanks to their different constriction, headers produce the so-called “scavenging” effect. It consists of individual tubes that all connect to a larger collector tube, that creates negative pressure to push all remaining gases our of the cylinders. In our store, you will find BMW 3-Series performance headers manufactured by leading aftermarket companies, including PaceSetter, aFe, Magnaflow, Agency Power, and Spec-D.
