Post headers,weber carb, and paint

I have an 85 cj7 w/258 and t-5. I need a little more power at highway speeds and was wondering if headers will actually make a noticable difference. Also I would like to know what the cfm of the carter BBD is. Does the Weber 32/36 give more power while improving mpg like they claim? How much does the 38/38 affect the gas mileage? For anyone looking for rust protection, I have found a primer that is unbelievable. It is made by Rust-Oleum and is sold at Wal-Mart. It is called rusty metal primer and is a rusty brown color. I have used it on my 4-wheeler, tractor, and am now starting on my Jeep. I have never had a primer without a topcoat protect so well. It is also easier to apply and topcoat for me. For those wanting to detail all the small parts on their Jeep, get a Dremel or similar rotaty tool for the hard to get sandpaper to areas. It will save you some time and skin on your fingertips. Good Luck

Also, does anyone know of a carb that will work with stock air filter assembly? Will the weber start as good in cold weather without the hot air from stock assembly? Thanks.

I'm running the 32/36 weber on my yj, and it works well all the time. It provides such good gas flow, that I need to bump up my ignition system. I never had the hot air induction hooked up, so I can't compare.
