Ok guys here are the pictures. Like I said before when I first installed them I think these headers gave me the biggest performance increase compared to Volant and Corsa. First night I drove with them I accidentaly spinned my car in an intersection at 2a.m lol. The first time I held the stock manifolds in my had the first words that came out were WTF...







And I figure I throw in a picture of the whole engine compartment.

Nice pic's Marine. I see what your saying about the comparision of the stock exhaust manifolds versus the high flow headers. The difference in the bends is amazing. The headers direct the flow thru smooth bends instaed of straight out and then back ( 90% bends don't allow smooth flow.) Damn I want a set. How do the cats differ?, are they lighter?, Can you see less constriction.
Details Marine! I'm like a crack addict in need of a fix. Any estimation's on HP or torque figures............. I need a drink!............... Goose or Jack?
Allmost forgot, do they have anything available for the wires situation or is what we got the way to go........:alchi:

Well I seen so much of a difference that when I come home I go about the same speed when I make a right turn in the main inttersection and after I put the headers on I did the exact same thing and accidentaly turned the car sideways because of the added torque. I think puthing on the header with some iridium spark plugs and a exhaust from the cats back is the best way to go. I forgot to take pictures of the stock Cats I will do so tomorrow. The High flow cats are about half the size of the stock ones. About price you have to wait for Petroraimondi come back from the Sema show to make the price public. I just picked up the Eiback Anti Roll kit and will install it tomorrow and after that I am going to put on a 13.1" Brake kit and 3 piece wheels.

Looks to be a tight fit in their. How long an install and I'd love for a couple shots of the undercarriage showing off the exhaust.

put her on a dyno and hit us back! :thumbsup:
I will wait for Pietro to come back from the Sema Show and for my new plug to be in before I put her on the Dyno.

Wow Marine!!!That's tight quarters.:eek: I remember Pete saying it takes the better part of a day. Did you remove them from the bottom of the car or the top?
They can only be removed from the bottom.

I suspected so. Did you have access to a lift or were you on your back?
Doing it on your back is possible but I wouldn't recommend it. Mine were harder than usual because they were Stage 8 "12" point bolts that had some retaining clips.

Well guys I am headed to the hobby shop to install the Anti Roll kit. while I am at it I will take pictures of my custom corsa exhaust.

I took some great pictures of the headers and cats from underneath the car when I was installing the Anti Roll Kit. Here they are

Look at the Perfect Bends they don't restrict anything.
