And I've been reluctant to talk about power, as it is very subjective without proof, but as the car has been adapting over the last few days I honestly do feel a bit of increase. The car pulls hard, harder than I've ever seen it do. Makes me more excited to get the AA tune done.

LOL!
Nice! I bet it pulls harder! That tune will really bring it into it's own.

What I love about the headers is that you think the pitch/volume the exhaust is creating has peaked out at 5k or so and will just progressively get louder as you head towards redline, but in fact a little after 5k there is a drastic increase in both of those things and it screams to redline... Or at least mine does. Could have something to do with the leak on one of my midpipes. All I know is the leak at the head is gone as of last night and I'm looking forward to joining the (properly finished) club along with Dane. haha
I'm curious to hear the difference between these headers with the PE and with my CSv2. Videos just don't do these headers proper justice. Too bad you live on the other side of the continent.

All the videos remind me of an old school M6. They all have a bit of rasp at full throttle without sounding flatulent. I like!

I have some drone but it isn't coming from my headers so I guess I can speak for him. There shouldn't be much drone. I know cats quiet everything down but these headers don't create anywhere near as much turbulence as the OE ones do because of how much time they have before they meet at the collector. Everything after the headers is what is gonna effect how much drone you have.

I know what you mean. The best way I can describe it is it sounds like an aggressive tearing noise mixed into a sporty exhaust note. I love it. Haha

All I can say is: HOLY SHIT!!!!! The video doesn't do them justice. Dane's car is insanely LOUD! That growl progressively turns into a screaming monster wanting to get out! haha
Now, time to start searching for headers. Thanks Dane. hahaha

Yeah, I honestly would have preferred for him to weld a flanges to the adaptor pipe so it could be easily swapped out for the stock ones, but I told him to do what he was most comfortable doing. I don't have any pics right now, but he clamped the adaptor to the headers, cut off the flanges on the midpipe and welded the adaptor to the midpipes.

Yep, everything is stock and fits pretty much perfect from what he told me.

all the vids with Headers & PE sound too loud for my taste, may be that metallic rasp.

Hope you guys like it to live with it for a bit

It's definitely loud, no doubt. I might try an x-pipe or something eventually. The noise in the cabin is great though imo... I like noise though

Not for another year and a half plus. I just recently went through smog.
