That's what heat wrap is for!

Zuess I heard you have to make modifications to this header to make it work, did you have to do anything special to it?

That's one of those things that even if it doesn't cause damage right away it would be a long term durability issue if there is not sufficient clearance to prevent the lines/ hoses from being damaged by the heat.

It might be ok now, but there was shielding over the stock manifold to protect the other under hood components for a reason.

Well then they had better get wrapping, its still completely exposed in those pictures minus the heater coolant lines which were already wrapped.

I believe they could be re-positioned and maybe protected with a sleeve (heat resistant). You need less gap between them than you realize once the car is moving, but more is better of course.

I just care about hearing it. Who cares about the video quality?

I just do not want to have to wear ear plugs to work like I did my old 2001 Focus with a long tube and Magnaflow exhaust. I had a long tube and Vibrant exhaust on a Protege 5 and got the resonance under control with two long glass packs as resonators. Of course both of those cars have no where near 12.1 compression like the 2012 Focus...

I'm interested in hearing this as well with the header, body because for under $300 it should add a nice power increase.

In for sound clips!

If we only had tuning, I'm sure we'd have headers already developed for the Mk3.

I'd be interested in hearing a drive by video. I plan on doing this when we get tuning.

The dyno video from Focusboy58 is not bad as far as sound goes. It is just the interior resonance I worry about. I could give a about it coming out the rear. :-)
