I have bought a set of Megan Racing front upper strut bars and they are great, big bang for the buck.

I recently got a header of eBay, cause I was leaking from the header flange to the precat pipe and in the flex hose part. I am about to go turbo so I bought a cheap header I won it on eBay for $19.00 well $45.00 shipping but still. Bolted up with no fabrication and it looks and sounds great. Why pay $$$$$ when I am about to rip off the header anyways.

As for the Megan Racing header if it is as good quailty as their strut bars, you'll be happy with it I'm sure.

I recommend if you are only getting one piece at a time to hold all the exhaust parts unitl you have the complete set up then install it, otherwise your looking at alot of cutting and welding probably rusted bolts always round off or you have to cut them. I had to cut all three of my cat bolts and bang them the rest of the way out then replacing those bolts with stainless steel bolts and nuts. Good luck

p.s. my Lude is a non SH also

The headers definatly fit, but since you have an H22 engine you should probally do as others said and just save up for the whole thing. You won't see much of anything from just the header, that's what the H22 guys say at least.

everything should bolt right up no problems, whether you do the cat first or the header or the exhaust. all of them utilize flanges which means bolt on application.

which also means rusted bolts and a big headache, just hold on and put everything on, that way everything will bolt on just fine and you won't be wrenching off bolts and having to cut them off due to too much rust.

invest in a can or 2 of liquid wrench or wd-40 and start soaking the **** outta all the nuts and bolts. It all depends on how much time and energy you want to invest, if you are buying the next part in 6 months or a year, then I say throw it on now....(-:
