Hi guys, i would just like to know what type of header design would you prefer and why?

below is a common knowledge about this headers.

a 4-2-1 header is better for a close to stock engine because it holds mid-range power while a 4-1 makes the majority of its power towards the top of the rpms.

it greatly depends also on how you use your RAV so give us your opinion...

Well, if you are on the Expressway you will need the power way up there. It really depends on what type of driving you do. Using your RAV4 for Drag Racing doesn't really make any sence. You might ask why? Well, looking at the Acuras, Mazdas and Hondas that have Drag Racing in mind. RAV4 are made for the outdoors. Fishing, Camping, and Hunting etc. You ajust the header for the type of driving. Outdoor driving needs a lot of torque. Especially if you are in the mud alot and uphill roads. River crossing also need torque. A good short header can make this power.
