Icon9 Need Help With Exhaust!!

I bought an OBX type r exhaust off of 2kracking.com and a test pipe, and i went to put them on and i realized that i needed a new down pipe too because of how much rust there was on the whole exhaust system. Basically i need to know what specs that I need to look for when buying new headers. Anyone know?

Re: Need Help With Exhaust!!

If there are no holes, I wouldn't worry about it.


If you want a cheap replacement;
Any cheap header like megan or dc is pretty much a shiny version of the stock header. You just need to make sure the header is for a base or SH depending on what you have.





Or you could dump a decent amount of money for a Vibrant, SMSP, or Hytech.

Stock is 2.25 I believe. I went 2.5 with mine, and it worked great with the OBX twin loop. If you have the money and want a bit of a performance improvement, I'd recommend upsizing. PLM is a cost effective exhaust manifold, and comes with a 2.5 collector.



Sound clip :)

What wing8806 said. In fact, go hytech replica with solid joint. Flex pipe is nice but a major weakpoint in the header downpipe. Should change it to ball joint connections if you don't want any vibrations from the engine, what is your goal? Test pipe isn't legal in many states.

I highly recommend a flexpipe for any car that doesn't have solid mounts....
