Default New Pipes

Picked these up yesterday. Unequal length headers and catless up-pipe. They were sitting in some guys garage for the last few years. I'm not sure the brand, but I'm told they were bought at GRD.

Crappy cell phone pic.


I going to heat wrap them before I put them on the car. Should I try to clean or polish them up a bit? They are stainless steel and got a bit of bluing and discoloration going on. I'm not worried about the look, more about preventing corrosion especially with the wrapping. Any advice?

Dont bother with cleaning them. Wrap is a good idea though for a turbo application.

Nope, worse actually. Just can't seem to get the car out of the [email protected] range. Next I'm probably going to get a wideband and some tuning software and see if that can finally get me into the 13's.

I hear that wrapping can trap moisture and lead to rust, anyway to reduce or prevent that, or is that just a downside to heat wrap?

I've heard of it happening but i always have wrapped the cross over on my headers and haven't had a problem. Are those headers stainless?

I've heard that headers take away the distinctive "boxer" exhaust sound, is that true?

Excellent. It seems like its more of a possibility than a frequent occurrence, and ya these are stainless, so hopefully they'll last.

Supposedly equal length are good for a little bit more power too. Its amazing how many people would rather lose a little power, than lose the boxer rumble.

I think I figured out what brand these headers are. After lots of comparing pictures, these look exactly like the GT Spec V1 headers.

I'm 95% sure this stuff isn't "ebay brand". Its at least 4 years old and discontinued, so it was a little hard to identify, but I'm pretty sure.

Nice, did you just remove the butterfly valve and keep the rods, or did you plug up the whole thing? I'm still debating whether to remove my TGVs or find a nice TGVless manifold.
