On my friends Nissan....they are so rusted it pathetic....and he has only had his car for 2 years or so. It can't be too different on a 5th gen can it?

well, im not sure, but i think the primaries are the same size as stock, so the flow is not increased by much

people dont hate because of how they look, well some do, but in performance wise they are just a tad better than stock, so for which spending that amount of money is not worth it, spend a lil more and you can get greddy headers that actually work and look sexy.

I've used dc's header on my lude before.... It sounds good under heavy throttle. I had small gains in the mid to upper range of my power band but it was very minimal.

Nine never rusted so I cant comment on that.... I do agree that its a waste of 3-400 bux though..... if you don't plan on doing too much to the lude then its an O.K. buy.....

I just want a good header to compiment my head and call it a day.... *shruggs and leaves the room*

tel all you need is 2.5'', that's what I have and you're doing a similar build. Remember you do need a certain amount of backpressure.

I am thinking about going with a Vibrant header. It is a Mugen replica.

you won't see huge numbers from many bolton's period. you have to tune your motor to run with the newly added parts. This is where engine management comes into play.
