So I have the Tsudo fireball and the K&N Typhoon. I am looking at picking up the Tsudo headers but am wondering how much this will change the sound. I like the low sounding tone and am just hoping that this doesn't change it to an annoying rasp. Thanks in advance!

Noooo!! How bad? I assume you have or have had this setup? Do the silencers help at all?

from what you said you're looking to achieve, I wouldn't get them. I think the sound will really get to you.

I'd look into Dezod green header. Very low deep sounding tone, much less ricey IMO

all i did to my car was remove scuba tank and replace with glasspack style resonator and that was enough for the whole stock system to get a rasp at about 3500 rpm at WOT it gets a lil more raspy.

now just think how yours will sound with more air coming out the axle back

look at this video not sure of what the whole setup is but it give you an idea

I don't mind the way that sounded and I am not going to get a 6 cylinder sound from it obviously, but I just don't want it to sound rice. Like I said I currently have the Fireball dual catback installed and the Typhoon intake. I don't plan on doing a scuba delete so if it is going to be super loud and obnoxious then I am ok with that. If I put the silencers in will that help with the rice sound? Just don't want to wake my neighbors when I leave for work at 5:30.

you say you have a catback system so you removed your original scuba tank correct?


silencers do quiet it down but not that much cause the air comes out the sides of the silencer since you can completly seal the opening

The Scuba is really a 2-in-1 piece. It's the primary muffler, plus the second catalytic converter of the now-standard 2-Cat exhaust system.
That way, if you have a cat-less header, you still have a cat. Plus, it allows far greater flexibility for the final exhaust to get different sounds without being unbearably loud. The final exhaust piece can either amplify the sound, make it higher or lower, or make it quieter.
With the final exhaust made into a straight-pipe, the result sounds like a "classic" 4-banger (like a 60s British car or the like). With the header then changed, it makes it significantly louder, a bit more raspy (while still pleasant), but with a bit of drone at around 3,000 RPM (less drone just above and below that).
I mention that, as it takes the specific muffler out-of-the-equation. My B has none.

So, the header makes the exhaust system significantly louder and a bit more "raspy" in tone. If the muffler is a bit raspy already (as many are), it will be quite raspy.

Nope it's Travis.....but I am an architect and didn't leave the office until 1 last night and then was in at 6.....so I guess I will go with the headers and take the chance based on the above info. As long as it doesn't sound unpleasant and like some kid with a Honduh and a fart can. It's only 320 bucks (unless someone knows where I can find it cheaper) and if I don't like the sound I will just swap in a 2JZ......(or put the original manifold back on.) Thanks guys. As always this place is a wealth of information.

The amount of rasp depends A LOT on your aft muffler.

It has two mufflers so I am hoping that will cut down on the rasp.

I have been looking at the tsudo since that is the exhaust I have. I have been pretty pleased by it minus some deburring I had to do on the connections.

The only thing that concerns me is that I have heard of the bung for the o2 sensor being in a bad place and needing to need moved and rewelded.
