However, like some people on here have pointed out, if this header is used with the straight back collector then the cat section either has to be made up or get the header and cat section together from Moore Performance. On the other hand, getting the whole combo would still be nice because these two pieces of the exhaust will be worth it because of the craftsmanship that goes into each header and cat section.
If I remember reading right, any catback will be able to bolt up like a 2.25 or 2.5" and then a 3" if so desired with an adapter.
If I build the engine I am thinking then I would definitely like to buy one of these headers and most likely the cat section as well. It won't be for higher end power just low and mid so it would be perfect
some well thought-out feedback there. Thanks!
What if we were able to drop the price of the header/midpipe/cat combo to something close to the better headers on the market? Yes, the header won't just "bolt up" to a stock cat section, but as mentioned, the flow will be vastly improved.
- no heat shield rattles from the mid pipe section
- no wafer thin/rusty donut gasket flanges.
- high-flow vs. low-flow cat
- stock cat section can be sold for its platinum to recoup some $
