Default $449 MadDad(TM) Velocity V2 Header/Uppipe Pre-Order

OK guys,

I've been getting PM'd for the last serveral weeks with folks waiting to be able to reserve there spot on the non existing pre-order list for the revised V2 Velocity Header/Uppipe. Well here you go. First off, be aware that I dont suspect we will have these shipping until the end of July, maybe even slightly later due to additional new projects/parts being shipped at the same time as these. As is the case with every group-buy/pre-order we've ever done, you WILL NOT BE CHARGED until we ship to you. You WILL NOT be notified before you are charged so be sure that you cancel your order if you needs/requirements change prior to shipping. We will post to this thread with significant updates, such as the boat left, the boat arrived, tied up with customs....you get the idea.

To recap again, the MadDad(TM) Velocity V2 Header/Uppipe is a significant upgrade to the origonal MadDad(TM) Velocity V2 Header/Uppipe that we have resold for the past year. The unique uppipe incorporates a velocity stack that helped maintain low-end despite the origonal designs 48mm bore uppipe. For the new V2 we had a new velocity stack uppipe done in 45mm to increase the low end torque and make for faster turbo spool. We have a car heading for the dyno on the 25th of this month with it's 48mm uppipe being replaced with the 45mm so we will post results as soon as we have them. We're quite confident the 45mm uppipe will yield excellent results over the 48mm.

The other significant change for the V2 is the incorporation of an EGT bung(not an 02 bung) pre-fitted for the most accurate EGT gauge readings close to the exhaust port on cyl.#4. This will make installing your EGT gauge as simple as installing a boost gauge and save you the expense of taking your header and having a local shop drill and tap your manifold after the fact. Having this done at the time of manufacture is a much better solution since the header is then fully deburred and cleaned better than what you would get an an after-the-fact EGT bung install. The fitting is 1/8NPT but you can easily adapt this to what ever you need with an adapter. The pre-order has an option to add a MadDad V2 Rx or Ti series EGT gauge to your order for a silly discounted price as well. Hey, you might as well make use of that EGT bung.

The Pre-order is only $449.95, plus standard freight. This is the only time you will see it at this price. The revised resale is $599.95 The last customer that had their header tapped for an EGT bung, it ran them close to $85. Going through quality stainless steel is more work than tapping the factory cast manifold which is softer. Figure that cost the your saving and you will realize just how great a deal this is. If you don't already have a catless uppipe then the deal becomes borderline silly and should be an absolute no brainer, but even if you do have a catless uppipe, this $449.95 deal is still the best header deal in town, period.

The Pre-order is limited to 25 sets and I have a feeling they will sell through rather quickly. We have a number of resellers coming on board in the 2nd half of 2006 and the rest of our incoming are reserved for them and for standard resale pricing units so order now. With the revised uppipe and EGT bung we think this is the best unequal length header choice around. I'll post some customer dyno charts from the origonal design soon. With the new uppipe we can only expect a nicer curve.

The photo shows a final production ready V2 Header/Uppipe. The inlet pictures show the EGT bung and the velocity stack in the uppipe. A complete 5 layer metal gasket set is included as well as uppipe studs. We also stock extra 3 bolt uppipe gaskets if ever needed.

Is there an 02 AND an EGT bung? I can't tell from the overall picture, is the EGT bung in the header or the uppipe? Is that it in the bottom left of the overall picture? Thanks!!!

These pics might help.

There is an OEM EGT bung in the uppipe, which to be honest we are considering removing prior to their production schedule. Why? Well there is really no need for the factory uppipe egt in a catless uppipe so removing it will help flow slightly. We would of course include the resistor fix with every order if this change occurs. I'm waiting to hear back from our manufacturer as to whether it's too late or not to make this change.

There is an 02 bung in the collector but that is for the factory 02 sensor not an EGT. Every header has the 02 bung. The EGT bung we put in is nice and close to the exhaust ports where an EGT bung should be for the most accurate results. Putting the EGT in an uppipe or other location further from the exhaust ports will only yield lower EGTs and give you a false sense of where things are really at.

Some folks have PM'd us about being able to purchase just the 45mm uppipe, which will of course work with our origonal Velocity Header, GT-SPEC, Vibrant Performance or TOMIE header/uppipe combos that use the 3 bolt uppipe. I will be getting an extra dozen or so. I don't have pricing yet, but those that bought a Velocity header from us will obviously get a better deal than if your buying it for another brand. Gotta take care of the loyal MadDad(TM) customers. However, we'll price it right for others as well. It seems folks are quite receptive to the changes as we've already got hit with a few orders.

Unequal lenth and will retain full boxer rumble. I'll post a clip of my car with the origonal design from last year. The mainfold for the V2 is the same except for the additon of the EGT bung so the sound characteristics will be very much the same.

A full 5 layer metal gasket set and uppipe studs are included. You will need some 14mm bolts/nuts to complete your install.(for the uppipe).

I say if you can, please remove it (and include the resistor fix)! If you can't, then "oh well" because I already ordered mine!

I have mine ordered. Been waiting awhile and bugging you by PM.


And, I also vote for no up-pipe bung if at all possible.

I've got a friend who was wondering if this header/up-pipe combo would work on his 2006 Legacy GT

Thanks

We have some of the origonal design on the 2005 LGTs. I don't think anything changed exhaust wise on the 2006 for the LGT, but I'll double check. Should be plug and play though. I'll post back later for a definate confirm.

Well,

We were a little late with our request to X the bung in the uppipe, so we'll look to supply a plug with the header kit so you can plug this if you like. Also, we will be including a bolt set for the 3 bolt uppipe. In the past bolt/nuts were not included for the manifold to uppipe, but they will be included with all the pre-orders. We got a ship date of mid July, which means we will see the shipment at our door mid August. If your interested in this deal I would place an order soon because they are going fast.

Is there a drastic difference in power/spoolup between the coated and uncoated parts?

Rich,
what do you figure shipping to be and where can we get adapters for different EGT probes (Defi, GReddy, Omori, etc.)?
