I want a turbo just for the noise it makes, I could care less about the power it gives me. But I can't spend 8K on a noise haha.
The header is good, the "S"-pipe is for bragging privilege. If you decide to do both, do the header first and after evaluating its value, then do the "S"-pipe. That way you'll be able to tell what the "S"-pipe actually brought you.I have been thinking more and more about adding a weapon r header and S-pipe to my setup... the reviews for a header have been great from everyone.
perhaps after the airbags.
Just come to South Carolina . . .I'd like to add a header and/or change the stock muffler but am concerned about passing smog.
Since I've yet to run my 2008 through DMV, I can't be dead certain. However, I'm expecting my loss of the pre-cat to be a minor issue given the continued presence of the main cat ("scuba"). The choice between axle and cat backs basically effect only the sound. Choose whatever you prefer, but it's highly unlikley emissions will change as a result.Doesn't the stock header contain a pre-cat?
For those who have to worry about it: how will you pass your smog inspection after you install your header?
Also: does altering/changing the stock muffler affect your smog inspection? I read on another forum someone was arguing the stock muffler added "necessary back pressure" or something like that.
