My biggest pro would be for sensors to match OEM so as to not cause any ECU problems, respectively lol.

The difference is the following:

Chinese metal is typically inferior. The chemical composition of their metals is not the same as ASM (American Society of Metals). What they will call 304 Stainless Steel will be different from the composition of what US 304 Stainless Steel would have. This will result in any of the following: Softer metal, rust prone "stainless steel," insufficient thermal properties (weakened/softened by heat), and it could also work harden from vibration and crack.

On the fabrication side, welds could be inferior both in appearance and integrity, filler metal can be inferior, penetration insufficient, etc.


It is experience with seeing these kinds of things that has lead me to the conclusion that I cannot afford to buy cheap, because I will have to buy again.

Bump, any new takers on the header scene lately? I saw one members build thread with the obx header and Porsche extended o2. Just curious if anyone is in on deck for the batters box.

Early 2015 I plan to do a header and exhaust on my car, hopefully theres some intake manifold swaps available too. I really feel like these motors are way detuned from factory.

It would be convenient for members who haven't done their cat backs to do it all at once. I'll be a while on this mod but look forward to reading up on the progress.

Yeah, I'm still on 100% stock exhaust. Not sure how I want to approach it though.
