the stock cat is in the header. so no... it won't really bolt up.

looks kinda weird though... not sure what that is supposed to fit.

It does look similar to the HKS turbo headers, but that flange on the end is kinda weird.

there is no way that header would fit up to a stock 04 cat section. And even if it did, that would mean that it would not fit your car as the header design completely changed in 06.

I'm sure it will bolt onto your motor. whether or not it hits the oil pan or xmember (could be for a turbo car) I'm not sure. I can pretty much guarantee that the rest of the exhaust will have to be custom unless the selling includes the rest of his exhaust.

Even if you put a cat in there somewhere, you could still throw a CEL. No cats will definitely throw a CEL.

Does it look like it could bolt up to 07 cat section?

like i said before, one of the cats is in the header.

That header is pointing towards the side of the car. The stock header finishes pointing towards the back. So it wont bolt up. There is either a piece missing or it wasn't intended for a 2.5i at all.

it will definitely NOT bolt up to a pre-06 either.

google 2.5i exhaust and find a diagram. you'll see what I mean.

Negative. There is only one header on planet earth that bolts up to your factory cat pipe and it looks like this:

That header looks like it will fit 02-05 if its a mirror image.

Lol good ninja edit. That's what I thought when I saw it. Doesn't really make sense though...

Yeah, got ahead of myself there. But if it's not a mirror image I don't see how it works clear anything on the engine like the oil pan

If the image is not mirrored, the only thing I can think of that might use a header like that would be a conversion header for a westfalia or something...
