eBay headers

Quick question, looking at aftermarket eBay catless headers, got a buddy who can make a simulator so no codes.

But if I leave my rear cats in will it still pass a sniff test?

The only ebay headers are OBX and they do not fit right. The collector section runs right into the engine mount. It requires heavy modification to the header or the engine mount. You don't want to weaken the engine mount.

The headers for n52 e9x and e82/e87 are as follows
  • Supersprint - the most expensive, sound has been an aquired taste
  • MMW coated headers - great sound reviews
  • ARMASpeed stainless steel - priced competitive, no English reviews plenty videos

Also,
Magnaflow Direct replacements for manifolds with catalytic converters. Prob better flow than stock but no where near header gains

IMO MMW is going to be a lead supplier once he's "done" with everything. SS is just too much for everyone's $$$, I wanna wait for a part out. Even if MMW is taking the time for "R&D" at least he's stepping it up.

Also I know MMW is ceramic coated, but are they stainless (SS) underneath? Or were you referring to SuperSprint.

Regardless what price ARMASpeed quote, you still need to factor in the Ceramic coating cost ( assuming you can coat Stainless Steel).
