Headers or no headers

I am new to jeeping. I have a 2012 wrangler 2 door V6 24 valve. Long ago I used to build motors and headers were a pain in the the butt. I am planing on running duals and replacing converters. I am wondering if headers a worth the pain this is something I drive everyday. Looking for opinions.

Not worth it at all. Same goes for throttle body spacers and "power chips". Dual exhaust isn't going to get you anywhere either. Except maybe made fun of by fellow Jeepers.

I'll make it easy for you. You can't put headers on a 2012+ with the pentastar. The exhaust manifolds are built into the engine block.

hmm interesting, exhaust manifold is cast directly into the head.

So do you just keep factory exhaust? Looking for a recommendation?
