Default Re: 3SX Headers Are they worth the price?

Bang-for-the-buck is kind of subjective, but it may be worth it IF pursuing every possibly pony... if your DR750's are ported, then you will want to port the manifolds too.

I wrote a review here:
Review: 3SX TD04 Manifolds / Headers and 3SX Turbo SS Braided Coolant Lines <<

There are many threads for the GCTech unit if you search (3SX is similar in design)

GCtech header VS Stock-real deal test <<

GCtech Td04 OEM Header DYNO results <<

^^ Read those with a grain of salt as they are NOT 100% equivalent.

To answer your question: IMO, it is only worth it if 1) your stock front is cracked and no desire to repair/replace and/or 2) aforementioned gains. There are a few high HP 3/S pushing stock manifolds.
