I was thinking bout getting a header for my 02 WRX. So far I have a SR30, DR500 FMIC, STi Injectors, MRT UP/DP, B&B Cat Back, ECUtek, and some other stuff. I was wondering how much power I could pick up off of a header. Would I see quicker spool? My friend said he got better gas mileage with his HKS header. What header would you pick?
Thanks, Frank

Spoolin,

Were do you live in Spring Hill? I live in B-ville. I heard you blew the tranny in that car.

Go with the GT-Spec II. I just installed it on my and you will spool quicker. It is the only one I have seen many good shops back and actually say you will get a HP gain.

you ask where i live in spring hill but you heard i blew the tranny????? hit me up with a pm and tell who you are. btw i didnt blow the tranny, i just slipped the clutch a lil too much and with all that power and a stock clutch once it slips it doesnt grab :)

i had heard that i would lose a lil bottom end but gain alot on top. i saw where someone had dynoed the GT Spec and got like 15 awhp and some have dynoed the HKS and got like 25 awhp.

did you notice any lag with it? if so how much? did you dyno the car before and after to see what kinda power you got from it?

if you got the money, i'd say go with the Cusco 4-2-1 header. I love how it works to allocate more low and mid range power. Gives an awesome OOMPH to the lower power ranges, sacrifices a bit of top end power, but the performance you get in the lower and mid ranges is worth it

The new maddad header seems awsome, its a replica of the tomei header made by the people that make the tomei header, it also is said not to reduce the bottom end.

when you guys say you have good results with a header are you talkin bout peak numbers or curve? has anyone had any experiance with invidia, cuz i heard from a friend that those are pretty good too.

I noticed more low-end power/torque... before the turbo kicked in... :cool:

I saw you post over on nasioc that you had a problem with reading the charts from the header shootout. . .which I still have a headache from. I just sent an e-mail to the 'numbers guy' from that to see if he still had the core data. . . I'll update this if I can get that information.
