Default Megan Racing Header

i want a header. Actually I want to get rid of the uppipe cat and be done with it. How is the Megan Racing header? I've heard megan racing stuff is crap and "for civics." Anybody have any opinions on their header. Because i like the one piece design.

Thanks

P.S. I don't need to hear "keep the stocker"

A friend of mine got the Megan "header-uppipe" all-in-one and it went on rather well. The only part that was a slight pain was getting the uppipe to the turbo mounted had to jimmy the turbo around to make it fit on good with out leaks.

All-in-All I would buy the header my self but im happy with my stock one.

I have the Megan Racing one-piece and I like it. The install was a PITA b/c of its one piece design. One issue I had was with the EGT probe bung. The probe wouldnt tighten up so i had to put a bolt in it and do the resistor mod. Oh well.
For the $275 i spent on it, I think it was well worth it especially since it comes with a one-year warranty. It also pulls alot harder top end, and the boost comes on stronger. It seemed to shift the powerband higher in the RPM range. If your into drag racing you'll like it. If auto-x is for you, you probably will want to keep the stocker.
Some advice though if you get it:
Wrap it: Wrapping each runner separately until the collector made it perform the best for me. Unwrapped, it dissapates the heat too quickly and makes the car feel slower and take forever to spool.

FYI wrapping or tapping headers for EGT probes usually voids that warranty anyway, ie Borla.
