e/i/tune people are getting close to 40whp. Not sure what you are saying tho.

40 from all three but would be nice to get 20 from each. What I'm saying it's hard to improve on perfection.

I would say this car gets good gains from a 2.0L engine for sure. A lot of cars would gain maybe 10whp from the 3 mods. This car is not as perfect as you think, ford could have pushed more hp out of it and that is why we are seeing the gains we are.

Hopefully someone does soon, I feel like I'm out of exhaust flow and I don't want to be the first to try one haha.

That mk3 specific header that was on eBay is sold out (obx). They had 2 in inventory. I wonder if the people who bought them are on this site...

If it was just a test to see if it will be bough, we passed. Hopefully they will make more :D

This header is NOT a direct bolt on! You have to extend the "down pipe" about 1 inch. We have done all this R&D about 2 years ago. I was the 3rd car with a header and the first one to keep it on there with no issues. I have been running mine for almost 2 years. You will have to get a longer upstream sensor as it is NOT recommended to cut the factory one. Research my posts as I gave an entire writ-up and part numbers. The sensor is off a 2008 Porsche Boxster and do NOT use the gasket that comes with the kit. Get the factory gasket as it is 100% better. You have to use a "j tube" for the deletion of the cat as well. It does not work 100% of the time. If you do not have the proper tools to check A/F ratio then you need to stop before you damage your engine.... This is a DI engine and it relies heavily on the A/F ratio to be correct. I would wait until Injected Engineering comes out with theirs as it will have a cat and will be a lot better quality.

Are you referring to the generic obx duratec at the beginning or the mkiii specific obx header later on?
