yes, without any headers, it will be almost like a e36 m3 which has the m50 manifold added. i think hp is close. With maybe less insurance.

Goodluck USNEM_128i & the1andonly with your decisions

Some of us here have the 128i for the next 3 years at least so we want more fun every day and have added all the things above.
My experience has been, wow the car feels like its breathing better & angrier at every mod. I will go test drive a 128i soon to compare how much has changed
