Help I'm new

2010 Ls3. The plan is a Magnacharger system, not quite sure on the cam yet, Corsa Exhaust system, and long tube headers.
Question is are getting heads done worth it?

gains depend on other mods. of course you will see more gains with a cam or blower. but if its stock it might be a bit less. with my setup, im hoping for 20rwhp. anything more than that and ill be happy.

As to how much Hp you will gain with head work it just depends on the cam you use. Good thing about getting head work done you can raise your compression and go with a higher Cam if you want which will also help with the over horsepower.
