damn, you got em first eh
Maybe, wasn't sure if anyone else got them yet.
I have an E-mail to Billy about the front 02 bungs, there is none.. lol:thepan:
It figures, the ones you need to have were left out..:hmm:
I will just drill out the headers and weld a bung in each Header collector if Billy says that is fine. If I remember right the front 02's were fairly tight up higher where they are now. Most likely have to extend the 02 harness on the fronts as well. I am just glad I like working on vehicles, well as long as they are new and rust free anyway.. haha

So there will be no cross over or x-pipe? Who made those?
The two small pipes, one with a converter and one with a resonator will replace the front pipes. You will still have a X-pipe center or Resonator center depending on what you have now. These are the updated Billy Boat Headers and cat pipes..

Now I'm interested. These look much better than the original design. More like long tubes. Are they the same cost?

Not sure about the cost but I also do like the fact that they are now true long tubes. A new collector gasket design to, bye bye leaks I would think. I will go take some more pics and be back in a few and post them up. I also would say that the converters shouldn't come apart anymore, held in place a lot better in this design. Billy also is going to offer a "off road" "not for street use" had to put that in there so not to get him in trouble.. haha "test pipe" to replace the converter pipe when racing if you want. It is going to be a very nice system now, I know I will be happy with it after I take the time to do the swap..

HDMLNIUM,

I can't believe there aren't any bungs right before the collectors on the headers. You sure you didn't get the off road versions???:hmm:

When I asked Billy, he said the O2 sensor harnesses will reach.

Doh on the extra O2 ports - looks like I need to get on the horn; mine should be here any day now as well.

I did ask him to do the flange like this for my set, so I hope he did them all like this as it will seal a hell of a lot better..:yup:

OK, I give. So what must we do? Is this a replacement for our defective headers? As in send back our first ones and he sends you these? Please let me know.

Hey Bill, those look good. Does he offer them without the resonators? I would imagine he would but why would you want the resonators? I don't think you are running them now. Let us know what you think of them once in place. I would like to get the same set up without resonators, I think.

CVP33,
I would say just shoot him an e-mail and talk it over with him, that is what I did. Or you could call him and do it that way.

Dan,
I am sure you could get them without the resonators if you asked for them that way. I hope to have time to get them on soon so we can have another track day..

Bill
