I will let him know of that issue and hopefully he will have a fix. I think he wanted to make it one long header with no flange in the middle. While this makes it slightly more difficult to install there would be no issue with it hanging. I don't want to speculate too much on the design yet as we are just trying to gain interest. This guy seems very interested in making a product for us so hopefully this happens.

BTW this header won't even work on my car so I am doing this for the community. You guys know me I'm more about MPG then HP . So I will only continue to try an make this happen if YOU people want me to. So everyone keep posting in here if you want a new header.

OK his theory right now if I understand what he said correctly is this. One piece header and down pipe then a gap between that and where the stock exhaust starts. That gap can be filled with an aftermarket cat with provisions for O2 sensor or a test pipe and defouler for the not so enviro conscience.

Doesn't seem to be any real way to utilize the stock cat unless it's made similar to the OBX but then people can just buy those if that's the design they want. This one will have longer runners with smoother transitions all creating much more HP.

did you ask if we got an option on the downpipe size?

No I did not. This guy has been in the business for awhile and everything he makes puts more power to the wheels across the entire RPM range. Bigger piping is not always better and he will know what is best. I can make a suggestion though if you want. There will most likely be no options as he probably won't be building several different styles.

I can honestly say there is much more interest on this forum then any other ones I've posted on. I don't want to join any CUBE sites so if anyone is a member of a cube site please post this info.

i mean even with the crappy obx header my mileage has gotten better and looking at the stock one the way its squished in spots to fit its retarded. By the way would he like a stock header to work with for an idea?

i have been absent, but just came across this thread... the OBX header is a piece of crap, i swapped the flange on my cats to adapt to the header (i live in CA) and it has been nothing but trouble.... why dont you just talk to your friend about doing a high flow cat? anyways the design of the OBX is flawed, the collector is just pieced together and looks like crap... if the DC header never comes out i might be interested...

You may still be out of luck in CA as if makes room for a CAT don't you guys need to retain the OEM one? I don't know the laws out there. This one would fit an aftermarket CAT with a spot for an O2 sensor.

I think out best bet is to have him design this in a way to leave room for a common size and flanged aftermarket CAT. He will sell the header with the CAT, test pipe or with nothing. This way all the headers are the same no matter if you want to go with a CAT or without.
