MMW header dynos?

just wondering if any owner of them ever bothered to actually dyno.. and posted them?

or has it turned out to be a bit of a flop power wise?

None of us have dyno'd it. I had planned to, but been busy with the e30 project car I bought. I'll eventually get to it.

i can't believe out of however-many units have been sold... as a POWER modification... not one person has thrown it on a dyno to see how much they got for their money (and time waiting)

heck, i can't believe that MMW hasn't done a dyno themselves >_>.. would sell more units.

wow you guys have expensive dynos over there lol

i dunno, i'd think paying $1000+ to get performance headers and install would warrant the confirmation they're even doing their job....

There has been confirmation. The OBX headers have been dyno'd and shown gains. Any time you delete a major restriction in the exhaust you'll see gains (cats). I can feel the car is faster. I dont need a dyno to show me something that I already know.

Yeah but these headers could be WAY more amazing and good value.. o be terrible and worse value

So because product x works well, product y must be perfect too? well fair enough then.
