Default Headers

Hey everyone. Anybody ever put a header in their PT? I once did it in a Type S Acura coupe I once had. It gave a nice kick in the butt. If so, what would you recommend. Thanks.

as long as it's a n/a... yes.

if you're trying to get as much power out of your n/a as possible, then yes, you will want to get it. but do be sure you get the good stuff - don't want that ish breaking...

If, as your signature would suggest, you are talking about a GT, you can't do an aftermarket header. The turbo is integral with the head pipe. If you remove the factory header the turbo housing comes with it.

Thanks for the info. It's hard not being mechanical.

now... you can, mind you, get the exhaust/turbo manifold ported, polished, and coated with ceramic... and while they're doing that you might as well get your factory turbo ported with a larger compressor wheel ----> read SST.
