Hoping I can hose clamp the stock heat shield on to the powerbomb.

I did a lot of reading and research before I decided on a replacement pipe for my WR.
I'm going to be getting a new exhaust system, don't know for sure what, but my question is, is a titanium powerbomb header worth the extra $100 or should I just go with a stainless steel one. I know my stock titanium header dents very easily when the pipe is hot, will the titanium powerbomb do the same thing?
Brand names aside, it seems that the TI headers do fatigue and are prone to denting more easily than Stainless Steel. By comparison, the weight saving you achieve with a Ti header compared to SS is not worth the extra $ (IMHO). I agree that anything after the header is OK, be it carbon, Ti, Alu or SS. It depends on how much noise you want vs. performance and looks/fit/weight! - there is and will be atrade-off to some extent with these. I also went for the powerbomb but mated with a Q2 (a noise issue) - it comes with a PowerNow insert - the combo apparently restores mid to low end. While this combo may not be the best for performance, I think it gives good power gains over the stocker at only modest noise increase - still legal and wont upset the neighbours.
My .02 / Hope this helps
