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.
