USDM models have a plastic splash tray and it is important. There's one for 06-07 and a different one for 08+. Both would need to be test fit.

As a grad in Animal Science, I can tell you right now that Hippos are pretty darn fast. So I wouldn't feel too bad Ty.

Also, free bump for a new header design, the header market needs a little more competition.

Ralli sport racing- don't forget to check the OEM front diffuser will clear these headers. Not sure if the US models have this but it is worth looking into.
LOL hmmmm AVO Power intake made for the EJ255

funny thing is, i have the avo power intake on my car. its not a bad setup. BUT, you still get all the problems that everyone and williaty has been talking about. one other thing that i dont really like about it is that it likes to bounce around a bit. maybe putting a few washers and changing up a few things might help but its not a bad intake all in all. massive filter. i would also suggest using a sock of some sort to keep a lot of the water out. it helps in big rainstorms.

here's the response i got from RalliSport..

"If all goes well, I should have a few production units available for purchase in a few weeks. The production units will be another month or two. As of now it looks like the price will be around $550. I may discount the preproduction units a little."

There is no way you are beating 350z's. The least powerful one still has 287bhp, and low 14 second 1/4. Did they know you were racing? And unless you are running high 14 second quarter mile times you aren't beating rsx s's , or gt's either.

You are full of **** Your 2.5i can't beat a Corolla Type S off the line much less a RSX in fact this 2.5i is the slowest car I have ever owned. The only bolt on that freed up power was the pulley and maybe the intake which has greaert detrimental effects in the long term.

ImprezaJake obviously hasn't driven any of those cars...
Anyways, its good to see that the 2.5i community is getting some recognition. You might find that using a cheaper quality metal other than stainless steel may yield you more buyers, maybe 409 like GEE - OTTO was saying. $550 is a lot to ask for for headers that do not surpass factory horsepower numbers. I honestly believe that most of the interested buyers are looking to get rid of the annoying honda sound. Good luck to you OP for putting forth the effort to find a solution

+1 cheaper steel would be nice and set the price low. People might paint or wrap them anyways.

Also a "cheaper" cat would cut costs down. It does not have to be specifically OEM double comb quality, just something that would not gives us codes.

Also, look at the other ways people can get UEL by going Borla Replicas and Custom or Rallisport cat-pipe. It will be definitely cheaper than $550!

Doubt it. Borla reps are $200+. Then add the cost of a custom cat, then the cost of a catback (probably). We're talking $800 on the cheap end. That's not even including the 02 extension, wrapping, coating, custom modification, etc...


that being said. +1 for cheaper metal. Anything to bring the price down. He could quite easily get it into the $400-500 range, and still get his money for all his awesome hard work.

Devils advocate here.
Cat back is separate from this product and you would get this regardless of your header setup if you chose to. Same goes for wrapping coating, and possibly o2 extension, which depending on your setup you won't need.

Speedy2racer and a2r Inc sell the headers for around 130 on eBay, pickup a new cat for 100 and any shop can weld that for you for cheap. voila. Less than 300 dollars and you have some kind of uel effect.


Don't get me wrong, I think it is great there is some product development going on for our cars, but there are always other options.

This may be a great direct and hassle free bolt on to help people achieve their goals. Ill let you decide.

Hm. Didn't really think of it that way. Good point.

Although, I think his market is "people who want growl, but just want it to bolt on". And in that sense, you will not be able to get an ebay UEL setup for much cheaper than $550 (because you HAVE to swap out other components in order for it to fit).

That being said, I'm excited for this to come out. And I hope he can squeeze it to the $300-500 range.

Wow, can't believe I missed this, they look very promising, waiting for final release price and date, etc etc.

Bigger question is, will these stop or lessen the dreaded sewing machine affect?????

When will there be a sound clip etc etc?

I have spoken to Mike via 5 emails and/or PMs about cheaper components. I think that S409 would lower the price over S304. If 409 is used then MIG welding it would yield a strong bond with little distortion. I think that it should be a thought but in the end a product that lasts for years is the top priority of rallisport racing. I think that many people will wrap or coat the headers (myself included) so S409 fits.

The one thing that SHOULD not be compromised is the Catalytic Converter. You can get inferior grade metals that will last the test of time but on a 06+ you want a catalyst substrate that will def last the test of time. MagnaFlow cats are not that costly and they work very well I am glad these will be used in the header.

^^ Thanks for the update, most interesting is that I might pick up a GREDDY TI-C catback and use the axleback with my uels, trackpipe and double resonated centerpipe. Should sound sick BUT eventually would like to change over to something more along the lines of what is posted in this thread. I do check my ebay uel's when doing my oil changes and thus far everything is okay but I know they won't stand the test of time.

The only sucky thing is that I traded all my oem exhaust parts to get the uel setup so if I get these down the line, gonna be missing a few components, but such is life right.

For the record, I have started looking into using 409, but so far it seems to be harder to find than a unicorn. Most suppliers say they "don't stock it, but can get" which usually equates to a special order mark up.

I planned on having a sound clip or vid today, but wasn't able to complete my functional prototype. The posted pics were of a rough mock up for fitment purposes. It needed some tweaking (assuming you want to be able to actually remove your oil filter). Also, I'm changing the secondaries from a 2.5" center line radius, to a 3" clr.
