yes I know right away you guys are going to tell me to get RIPP or some other $500+ dollar header. I don't have $500 laying around just for a set of header... this is going to be my next upgrade before spring comes around. here are my options. which ones the best/better. *KEEP IN MIND THAT I DO HAVE A MUFFLER DELETE ON THE OLE 4BANGER... I DONT WANT TO RUIN THE SOUND*

Megan: just seems to replace the stock header and leaves the stock Cat on (no real concerns with it) (pretty much bolt on)
http://www.meganracing.com/product_detail....337&catid=8

OBX: replaces the stock cat and puts in a "race pipe" (my concerns are what other exhaust modifications will I have to do with this and how will the sound change with no cat?) (not sure if bolt on)
http://www.erzperformance.com/OBX-RACE-HEA...-p/obxmit-6.htm

RS type or Megan (the guy doesn't know, says differently in two different post) (hes selling an RS type exhaust but claims the header is different but in a different thread he stats that "gs, gt, gts? I have a megan header and a rs type exhaust for sale. Exhaust has maybe 1 month on it, headers never installed." (only concern is what is it?

You have a 4 banger..you aren't looking for a "set". (IMG:style_emoticons/default/finger.gif)

If you don't want to ruin your sound keep your cat.

but OBX removes the stock cat and straight pipes it? I don't want it to sound bad. id like to know of an idea what it sounds like. heck for all I know it could sound better!? that's why I want to stay with Megan so I keep the Cat. whats your opinions?

If you have emissions testing, you will fail with a header.

I've always wanted to try a 2000 fed spec eclipse manifold but they are hard to come by.

Buy the OBX and a cat. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dunno.gif)
Make your cuts on the downpipe then weld in the cat. A shop shouldn't charge too much for the weld if you don't have your own welder.

I think I have read that if you install headers you will need to put in a spacer for the o2 sensors, I think a guy from club 3g use a spark plug fouler for the auto store in the HELP section

I live in Iowa. Fuck emissions testing's (IMG:style_emoticons/default/finger.gif) but buying the OBX sounds like a much more hassel and more time I have to mess around with shit. sorry but im still leaning more towards Megan

Are you installing this yourself or are you having a shop install it for you?
If you are taking it to a shop they would be able to put a cat on the OBX.
Instead of a cat you could have a resonator installed in your system if you are worried about the sound but you would still have to deal with the CEL.
Are you going to get a tune for it?
