One ticket was for a cop who said she PACED me at 90... However I never went over 70, she was under the bridge at the on ramp I got on, she heard me gas up fast and that turned her head my way, if this was my other OEM car, I would never had gotten her attention.
I would have added a stealth muffler to your system= quieter for you & the cops.

grayzx35speed I have this as a replacement for my cracked stock header but you NEED a tune. The header has no porys for the pzev and you lose the cat.

VEGAS I have the OBX header, i like it, i used it on my 2.0l then my 2.3l when I replaced the motor and it will require a tune, you will loose your CAT and I did get both AT and MTX flex pipes., I wrapped it with fiberglass.

I have the FSwerks CAI and FSWerks Stealth exhaust, its loud only when I get on the gas

Look at this link, usually when the post up stickies like this they don't put up crappy stuff on there, hence why the obx header is up there.

JoshInHisFocus92 A lot of people go with the OBX header because of the price, and the gains on it are actually very good as well. They replicated the Cossie headers, with very good welds and craftsmanship. i've seen em first hand and I was very surprised. The only thing I would suggest is getting better gaskets, (like 12 bucks or so from fswerks or a performance shop) because the gaskets that come with 'em aren't the best besides the the header it self is the best bang for its buck, and you also get both flex pipes atx and mtx, so you can sell the on you dont need for a couple bucks to pay the shipping lol. But you can't go wrong with those headers.
and remember you still have to coat the headers or wrap them. And a tune will defiantly be a must sooner or later.
