My new daily driver was bought with a 'crack' in the exhaust, up near the manifold. Turned out it was almost as cheap to replace it with a header as it was to buy new stock parts, so you can guess what I did... :)
Engine compartment :)puke:):

Crack in exhaust (at weld):

Broken piece (the only part that was still connected was <1cm 'spike' you can see - you can also see that someone tried to use JBweld or something to cover it up before):

Stock exhaust compared to new exhaust:

I've still got to get the stock studs out, and then get the new studs in, and then I'll get the header mounted & everything back together... :) Then I can get her inspected & registered! :woot:

The rest of the exhaust will stay stock for now...

[edit]: Yes, I know she's dirty. I've got to get her legal first...then I'll get her looking more presentable... :)

What in the world? I still can't figure out what that bar going over your header is for!
That is the pulse air injection manifold.

It distributes air into the exhaust to reduce HC emissions during deceleration.

Wow, Those are some nice looken headers.. I just got mine at summit raceing, WHICH IS AN AMAZINGLY EASY AND CUSTMER FRIENDLY company to deal with... I HIGLY recommond em,

But my header was just a pace setter, and much to my surpise once i turned over the engine and the smoke cleared i had a very ugly looken header. The paint peeled away and it looks old.. Thats what you get for not getting a nice chrome one or cermanic one.. I didnt realize it would do that.. Live and learn... but i was only like 120$ so i cant bitch too much and the downward peice goes clear to the cat.. so replacing the exhaust shouldnt be to hard..

However the header didnt come with one of those nice sheiled gaskets like yours do to protect my spark plugs.. and of course the factory heat shield is no longer an option.. so should i worry? I just kinda firgured if it wasnt shipped with the header then it wouldnt melt my spark plug wires..

Yeah, it's gonna look really outta place in that dirty engine compartment.

I hope to have the install done tonight, so I'll (hopefully) post some good news & pics on Monday... :)
