Yep, yesterday I wrapped my F2 header

Befo'


After



So I took it for a test drive today, the engine seemed to run a little smoother and had a little less mechanical engine noise.

You know how when you pop the hood a blast of heat hits you?
Not so anymore [:D] I had to stick my hand out to feel any heat [:D] [:D] [:D] I'm pretty freakin' happy

Oh, and here's the custom CAI that I made, it's on my parent's '03 Subaru Forester. Exhaust is a little deeper and louder, the engine is much more responsive and it has noticeably more power. It should get a little better MPG now too.
I spent a whole $12 on parts from the hardware store [wrenchin]

Not to shabby. Plan on wrapping my new F2 header as soon as it gets here. Taking advantage of this new price drop.

header wrap is a must! how much did you wind up using? I used almost a whole 2x50" roll on my OBX

Looks great! An entire roll of 2x50?! Wow. I only used about half of that. Though I think its cause the primaries on the F2 meet so soon so your wrapping the entire thing much sooner than the OBX or Cosworth ones.

Oh and just by looking at that before picture of the header. F2 did get rid of the stepped version. I can actually see where it steps out in that picture. Mine is the same diameter all the way down. Interesting.
