This is a good set up for about 200 bucks, because it does have basic options unless you know your stuff about exhausts to mock up a turbo spec header out of this.

I am planning on building a turbo into my car still trying to line all the stuff up in terms of fuel injectors and tune mods and so forth but if this could hold a waste gate and section for a bolt on turbo.

add a GTX3076R turbo charger to this puppy and you pretty much can build your self a 300+hp car if the fuel injectors and cyl's can take the pressure and heat.

Add motor mounts and spoiler to them and you have direct power to the ground. well depending on spoiler too most people buy those flat ones and those do almost nothing for traction...

p.s. also did i forget if you have a DCT the fast sifting speeds?

I would suggest avoiding iVoid suggestions. /facepalm


OBX is a pretty meh Asian market brand that started out making/distributing clear taillights and spoilers if that tells you anything. It may flow better than stock, but what doesn't? You can bet that there was little to no real research done on flow requirements, they just tacked together some tubes that fit. They take cheap metal, throw on some crappy welds, polish/paint it, and put it on eBay.

In short, buy at your own risk, recoat it unless you like rust, and don't expect too much.

never said for them to buy it, also for 200 bucks a header company could just buy one match it up and make a better header.

simple as that so it is worth the 200 bucks and just because it is asian market, your going to shut them out?

dude a little sad... seems like the asian market is the only ones will to actually mock stuff up for cars....

plus what i was saying in terms of turbo and etc is my plan and i stated if you read it that i am still lining stuff up still clearly you did not read it....

edit: you need to see the potential to really love cars and be willing to do what others are not else why not just do what anyone else does and just go for cars that already have everything and stop hampering on the ideas of people.

Here's a simple truth: Asian steel is inferior. Was not being racist or anti-import or whatever you read into my statement.

New header option

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=285401
Focusboy confirmed that the FSWerks duratec headers fit and are a direct bolt on.. Why risk it with sketchy eBay products? Or a header intended for another car entirely?

OBX isn't *that* sketchy. Plenty of people have them (mk2 and mk3 owners) and most if not all have given good reviews, especially considering the price. The FSWerks headers fit, but they are intended for the mk2. OBX is now offering a header intended for the mk3 (see post #6).

OBX doesn't do their own r&d; they typically copy another company's design. I wonder whose they copied for their mk3 header...

Has anyone ever approached FSWerks about making a MK3 spec header, or selling a modified MK2 header that is extended that half inch to make it fit perfect... Seems like a small amount of R&D cost to bring a "new" product out. My .02

I agree with you're point completely, I didn't give it much of a read, all the posts that is. but i guess it's all about user preference. I'm in college so cheap = very good, well in some applications as least like this for instance, I mean what's the difference if it's installed correctly lol? My biggest pro would be for sensors to match OEM so as to not cause any ECU problems, respectively lol.

For one i could easily have proven him wrong about the metal anyways but I kept quite.... why should I waste my time... I am not here to fight I am here to share my ideas and just have fun.

plus using the old header they do fit but I believe there is flow restrictions because of the ports that are on the header connecting it to the block, they do not have the exact same ports.

Best thing in this case would be to buy one of these cut off the ports if anyone have a spare mk3 engine around to line it up get the measurements send it off to a company then have them make it simple as that.

lets say it was custom they buy the header the cut the ports off, Now in my case i would make smaller pipes for more flow towards a merging(bolt on) section for a turbo with a wastegate then have anything else from there go on simple as that... only thing you need to do is have the time and money....
