I知 back!

Earthquake repairs all done, house is looking okay. While dealing with this, I ended up going metal on metal on my brakes, the cars seriously took a back seat to home repairs and recovery. That said, I have new stoptech rotors and hawk pads due in tomorrow. I have a question though. Can anyone tell me what header this is? I知 not trying to go turbo, just a very, very mild upgrade. I see pics of it everywhere, but can稚 see in enough to see if it痴 a turbo header or just an aftermarket upgrade. Maybe someone can school me on it? I love the clean look of it and since it looks close to stock, I might be able to get it past the smog nazis here in commiefornia. Thanks a bunch guys and gals!!!

There are several versions of the shorty header. They provided almost no actual improvement. Better off going with a SVT header & CAT conversion. This is not a turbo header.

Not sure on the rules in CA but you have not modified the emissions or any of its devices with this header to should be fine.

I was reading about that, however, smog laws are constantly changing and getting worse here, leaving a lot up to the techs decision to pass or fail on visual. I figured with the shorty I could tack up some small brackets to hold a heat shield, we値l see. On another note, these just came today! So excited!!!!

Oh, smog check tomorrow and then I can put my intake back on. I also need to sort out the muffler. It developed a rattle around 1800-2300 and at idle. Really, really annoying.

Oh, I知 also going to post a pic of my engines current height in the engine bay. I look at a lot of under hood pics and I知 seeing a trend, the trend is, every engine sits lower in the bay than mine. I知 using the coolant resi as a visual point. Everyone痴 seems to sit about 1 1/2-2 inches below the joint on it (from molding the resi), mine is even with it, maybe a little higher. Engine mounts are new as well, clean car fax on her and zero front end damage (nothing looks bent or cracked/twisted.

That痴 what I figured, but to have that big of a difference is odd. Not to mention, several custom jobs on google image search, super clean bays, they are sitting extremely low.

My guess some of it is perspective. Color of parts in the engine bay, angle of the pictures, and what mods they may have can make it look drasticaly different if you not using an actual tape measure to measure stuff.
