Default GPMOTO header -> Awesome

I was recently talked into getting rid of my Cusco headers for a GPMOTO one instead. At first I didnít really know what to think or expect. I spent a lot of money on the Cusco, and I didnít want to get a newer (Cheaper) header for something that I did not know would give me any gains.

After thinking what I should do, I decided to just bite the bullet and ordered a GPMOTO header. After all if I didnít like the header, I could always just sell it.

The day came where the GPMOTO header arrived. When I opened the package it looked beautiful. I had it thermal coated, and everything just seemed perfect inside and out. I really love how the up-pipe is built on. Lord knows how annoying those up-pipe leaks are.

The install went on superbly fast and there were no fitment issues whatsoever. As soon as the last bolt was tightened, I was ready to test it out. Right off the bat, I noticed the tone of the car had changed. And my car was actually quieter (I like it quiet, it doesnít get me pulled over by the police as much). I finally get it onto the street, and I was absolutely amazed at the difference that the GPMOTO header made compared to the Cusco header. Mid and top range power was a huge difference!!! It seemed like the turbo spooled faster, and just everything seemed to run smoother. I still cannot get over how great this Header is. I highly recommend anyone looking for a header to purchase the GPMOTO header. You will be happy you did.

I just want thank Dynamispeed for providing a superb product/install service and GPMOTO for opening up my eyes to this new power. I cannot wait to see what this header will do once I get that new turbo =)

Thanks,

a new dedicated GPMOTO follower

mods are: Cobb stage2 ecu, PDE dp, GPMOTO header, tanabe hyper catback, Samco IC hoses, GPMOTO shorty intake and some other niknaks

Did the GP Moto header completely eliminate the boxer rumble?

How do I contact GPMoto? I have searched Google ect. with no luck. I am very interested in a twin scroll turbo upgrade that GPMoto is rumored to be involved with.

yep contact ashley@dynamispeed.com


as for the boxter rumble.. i did lose some deep sound... but wasnt too bad. i sorta enjoy this sound more for a couple of reasons. Car isnt really loud anymore, cabin drone isnt as annoying, and i cant stand getting pulled over for too loud exhaust... thanks to california police.

he has a sound clip up with the header... right click and save as HERE

Yeah, the reason I asked is because I downloaded the sound clip, but wasn't able to play it. Extremely curious as to how true of an equal length header this actually is. The boxer rumble completely disappeared after I installed the Maxim Works header on my car. So now, my car just sounds like any other 4-cylinder car.

in that clip, it does lose the boxer sound, though it is slightly noticible. the sound is higher pitched, not as deep and rumbly, more honda-esque.

I have noticed on every car that I've swapped aftermarket headers onto, whether turbo or n/a, that the exhaust note gets higher pitched and raspier. Correction, only when swapping stainless steel headers.

My car sounds extremely Honda-esque now.

You dont get pulled over as much? haha, thats funny Shane... you need to stop speeding on the freeways.

We need to meet up one of these days so I can check out the headers. It looks like an nice setup, and I'm curious as to how it sounds.

I had one on my car...it may not sound like a Honda necessarily, but it does not sound like the WRX you're used to AT ALL. I didn't know how much I liked the rumble of the stock manifold until I lost it.

Also I lost ALLOT of the boxer rumble wich im LOVED.

I was told that it does give ALOT to the wrx since its a 2.0 not a 2.5 . Ive seen good gains in WRX.

TurboXS stealthback, Blitz Nur Spec Muffler, Samco hoses, TurboXS short intake, Cobb stage 2 reflash and I added the GP Moto ceramic coated header last week, it made a nice difference.

I'm going to dyno it this saturday, so I'll check back to this thread to post #s

I installed the GPMoto last year. I ended up going through two that leaked through most of the slip joints. I ended up returning it. They sent me a welded header, all the slip joints welded shut. The power compared to the leaking headers was outstanding. But in the end I returned the welded header too. The pipes were rubbing against each other through the RPM band and made one hell of a racket. They lost their adjustment being welded. All the current GPMotos are welded to prevent the leakage. The cost of them came way down too. As long as the one you guys get are welded, I wouldn't worry about it. If the slip joints are not welded, listen for leaks, I bet you have them. Unless you have them coated

Sean at GPMoto was awesome, give him a call if you have any concerns. No problem with the company or the welded product, but it was one hell of a hassel lasting over 6 months.
