+1 on not going for China headers- at one of the races down Long Wharf in New Haven I saw a Mitsubishi leave the turbo and down pipe on the ground because an OBX header just let loose.
There are many options for turbo headers- I myself have a set of B&B's and they SUCK! Their customer service sucks, their headers suck, they just suck! (P.S I don't mean to insult any dealers, but the company itself sucks...) I hear that GHLs are a good bet and I know they heat very well. You could also go for a set of new or used SSI's with the turbo cross-over pipe and still have heat. If heat is not your thing, then try the Schnell headers that are offered by performance products, only from a different vendor.
Long story short- you are going to spend more than $2,000 on a new set of B&Bs or GHLs, and maybe around $1,500 (don't quote me on the SSI's) on the SSI setup if you want heat, If you don't need heat, you could try a set of Schnell headers for less money (I think around $600 from somewhere).
When I say this is one of the few times that I disagree with Brian it is one of a few- Headers on these cars make a night and day difference to me. If I had the choice between a k27 and stock headers or aftermarket headers (B&B, GHL, Schnell, etc) with a stock k26- I would take the headers. Now I'm not saying they are the best bang for the buck since nitrous, but they most definitely transform the car's attitude in my opinion.
