How much difference would putting on a header > 2" exhaust > flowmaster muffle make power wise ?

I don't know power wise....but from what my friend said just an two inch exhaust makes a vast improvment in get up and go....so with the header it must make more power and better gas millage....as soon as i save up money and get a header and exhaust i'll let ya know

I had a doug thorney hedder on my 1.6 8v and I loved the power. I swapped the motor in without the hedder and then the following week went for the hedder and it made a vast inprovement in get up and go and I would recomend the thornley hedder to anybody. Dont get the pacetter hedder its crap spend the extra to get the thornley.

I have a Thorley Header and 2" exhaust on a 1.3L and the power increase is a few HP. The big advantage is it doesn't sound like a sewing machine anymore! :funny:

I did a Thorley header and 2 inch cherry bomb exhaust, a big difference noticed especially up in the hills. I also rebuilt the carb, put on a MSD blaster high vibration coil and was very pleased with the results, I got more power and torque.

Ya I dont know the numbers but any 5-10% change on a 1.3 is a big one. I know my 2inch with stock header made a big difference before I added a weber. I mean your not going to go screem down the highway, but still alittle bit more is a nice addition.

Honestly I will never go to a weber and that is a personal choice. I know the pros and cons. I rather save the money and get a 1.6 16valve in year or so...i would hate going up a hill and stalling...or going down the hill stalling...that would kill me unless someone would come up with a way to have a dual weber mounted both directions when one cuts off the other turns on? hmmmm nevermind too much work
