Thinking about headers install....
Hi all. Im almost done with my upgrades but i still have the torque arm relocation bracket and maybe headers.
the relocation bracket is easy but the headers might take me some time. i think i can do this. My question is: will any header work fine? I mean installation and functionality wise?
i was looking for something decent it doesnt have to be chrome. is ebay a good place to look? I was looking at these ones.

Most people who have gotten headers off ebay havent had any problems that ive read. I got a set of flowtech ceramic coated ones though. Theres a header install thread in this section. Id also recommend getting new spark plugs considering you have to take them out anyway.

Lol ok I will really think on doing the engine mounts too. Does these headers can be installed with stock cats and the stock y pipe? i currently have stock headers cats and y pipe and the the borla exhaust. If not I will like to have cats on my setup. Do i need to get these and have a shop weld them? Does the ORY pipe that hear about a direct bolt on?
I just keep reading about the car getting raspy without cats and i will like to keep them anyway. and lastly do i need to have a tune right of the bad after the headers? I had the mail tune from frost but I'm sure is not adjusted for headers. thanks.

frost already deleted the rear O2 sensor as far as I know. Does the cated y pipe has to be the same brand as the headers? Sorry for the questions but im trying to do this all myself as must bolt on as possible. thanks.

No they do not have to be the same brand however if you want to keep your cats you cant run long tube headers. and from what i hear the stock headers are just as good as any shorty headers

i see that cated y pipe sure looks nice. What is the benefit of keeping the cats besides enviroment? Will it smell more if you don't have cats?
I know an ORY will be cheaper but I won't be able to bolt on cats.

I got a set of LPP headers for 500 including the Y pipe!

yeah im starting to see that the Y pipe is more expensive than the headers that im looking at. I just dont want to have rasp so I will like to get cats with it. Can you buy an ORY pipe and put cats on it at a muffler shop? Can it be cut and the cats get weld on it?

hmm im also looking at the pacesetter with black finish. I really dont care about the finish but more about the installation and fitment. I can get those for $327 brand new. still not sure of what ory will i get but I want to have cats with it. Not sure if it will be cheaper to have a muffler shop make a ORY with the cats from ebay. I don't want to get rid of my borla exhaust.
