I've been waiting a long time for this. Should be going on tomorrow with my Hytech replica header.

big box. Yayyy. Lemme know how you like it man, I'll probably be deciding between this and the Thermal unit down the road a ways.

Re: I can haz exhaust?

Yes, it's a WS2 exhaust. Yes, fitment is excellent. It's super quiet, especially on the interstate. However, unless you've got balls of steel, I wouldn't recommend getting a Hytech replica header. This has been the worst experience I've had with exhausts in a looong time. Everything started pretty good today, snapped a couple rusty bolts with my man arms, the hangers slid off nicely after a bit of oil. Yup things were peachy. Even the old header came off without much of a complaint. I forgot to take pictures of the dismantled crap because my phone was in the car, which happened to be on the lift. Fail on my part.

The real bitch came when I started installing the header. Sure, the first piece bolted on like a charm, but the two pieces for the secondaries suck. Hard. First, they don't clear the crossmember, so you gotta notch it. I used an air chisel and then a BFH. I cleared it. Then came to sliding the little bastards on. That's a pain. About a 16th of an inch after you start them, they don't want to go anymore. Luckily, there are eyelets so you can use allthread and bolts to pull it together... at least that's what I think the idea was. The 1/4" allthread fit (except for one deformed eyelet), but you can't get a nut on it because the nut hits the exhaust tubes. Even if you did get a nut on there, you can't get it with a wrench. So eyelet placement = fail.

So... At this point, I get them situated through liberal application of force, via a deadblow hammer. Next, comes the collector. It went on fairly easy. This was a relief, big time. Unfortunately, there's no oxygen sensor bung. Lame.

Last, we have the test pipe which was included from the guy I bought it from.

*Now, in all fairness, I can't blame him for the next part, as it worked fine for him. I just wanna get that out there.*

Here's where the fit hit the shan. There are two oxygen sensor bungs. Great for an OBD II car, not so much for me. Second, this thing is like six inches shorter than I need. This is pretty major, considering I'm working in a Volkswagen dealership after hours to get this done, and there's not a single bit of material I can use to rig this. Long story short, I use a die grinder with a cutting disc to cut the test pipe before the flange, send my buddy to AutoZone to get some 2.5" pipe and clamps, and some other small items. After a bunch of time, I get the new pipe section over the flanged section's piping, and use a random Audi exhaust clamp to get everything situated. I have yet to close the open sensor bung.

I'll get more pics tomorrow, but today, I'm done. I'm tired, I smelled pretty bad before I hit the shower... and frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

Oh, and my phone sent one set of pics, I dunno what kinda bullsh!t it's trying to pull not sending the second set.





lol. My big noggin is in this one.

Re: I can haz exhaust?

I think you might have just sold me on the WS2. How quiet are we talking on the interstate? Like, stock quiet?

Re: I can haz exhaust?

Until my cruise control punched it up an overpass in New Orleans, I couldn't tell any difference from stock. However, once I hit 80, all hell comes to life cause of the leaks and vibration from the header/test pipe. In VTEC, it is louder than stock. Noticeably. It's not loud though, as far as I can tell. More noise was coming from under my seat than from the rear of the car, if that means anything. I'll let you know once I get everything situated.

Re: I can haz exhaust?

I also lol'd when I opened the box to find that the exhaust pipes are purple.

Yeah, I double posted. What, do you want to fight about it?

Re: I can haz exhaust?

Yes. It's like a graphite color, but in the light, it looks purple. I swear. It barely looks purple in the pics, and in some light it doesn't look purple.

Re: I can haz exhaust?

Hmm. Soooo now onto a more serious topic. With the HyTech Replica and the WS2, you're gonna have to get a 6" pipe to fit between the downpipe and exhaust piping?

Re: I can haz exhaust?

Eh... I can't answer that. This test pipe looks like a custom piece. A custom pice of sh!t really, but that's not the point. I don't believe the header comes with a test pipe. The exhaust is just as long as stock. It's not a product of the exhaust that screwed me.

Re: I can haz exhaust?

I'm more angry about having to go and find a way to notch the crossmember even more while the header is still attached.

You knew this was an issue when you bought the damn thing.

Re: I can haz exhaust?

The thing is, I notched it. Only one of two things is possible, and one thing is certain. Of the possibilities, I either didn't notch it enough, or my motor mounts need to be replaced. The certainty? This header is a pain in my ass.

Re: I can haz exhaust?

Okay, so I put an old oxygen sensor into the open bung in order to seal off that massive hole. Aside from one of the primaries or secondaries having a small leak (and causing a whistle under a load), this is by far the quietest car I've ever heard with a full exhaust. I'm gonna keep this header for sure now. I swear this setup is quieter while cruising than my stock setup was. Under a load, the engine is louder than the exhaust. You still get a little bit of "aftermarket" sound satisfaction while accelerating, and you definitely hear a little rumble in VTEC. I'm super satisfied. Once I fix that header leak and notch the crossmember a bit more, it'll be perfect.
