Merve - in your situation I would find a way to transition the headers. Is the flange thick enough to machine a shallow transition?

To get big power out of these engines you need flow. Any bottleneck or mis-match will be less than optimal. You may not feel it but you are leaving something on the table.

If you are targetting throttle response or reduced lag then smaller primaries will promote greater velocity at the cost of top end power.

Do you have a copy of Corky Bell's book? Great explaination of how this works and how to design an optimal exhaust system for your needs.
