Make sure that you also get a down Pipe too....when you get your headers custom made.

Draxas does not have a header for the 2.3. corksport i believe still sells one and you can get one from GT Spec....thought both of those headers were designed for the 2.3 and just happen to work for the car.

there are no headers on the market for the 2.3 worth getting at this point i'd say. F2 is looking at starting up their header again after SEMA this week. i'll be meeting with them today, so i'll have more info later.

there still should be some kind of tuning for the car before you get into stuff like that. youd be moving or eliminating the emissions stuf and need to tell the computer whats going on

tuning for a headers isn't really needed too much, not to the point that you should buy it before or with a header. bolt-on's typically will work fine without tuning....those being I/H/E. though you can gain more from tuning, tuning after the fact before future mods would be fine.

since the stock header carries pre-cats, and isn't metered until the main cat, the would be no issue with the headers and CEL if the stock or aftermarket cat was utilized correctly.

what about the autoexe header sold at corksport?
[/b]
they are quite expensive and designed to fit BOTH the 2.0 and 2.3. i don't think anyone has been willing to drop the cash for these yet, i'd like to see someone do it though.


I talked to Ricardo of F2 yesterday, and begginning of the year is what's expected, i'd guess Feb or so given design as well as fabrication. just an update from my side.

has anyone talked to pacesetter about producing a header system? some of the headers that they produce already looks somewhat similar to the 2.3l header dimensions. maybe they can produce something? what do you guys think?

anyone can produce something, but most don't see this market. shoot anyone you'd like an email, that's all it takes.
