You can get the both Vibrant and OBX headers on ebay all day.
MSDS also makes a header for it.

Every vendor I messaged about the vibrant header said they were discontinued and every vender said the obx was out of stock. Can you provide a link for the msds? Also will the vibrant header for the 2.0 fit my 2.3? (Part number 2541)

Vibrant: Vibrant 2541 4 2 1 Header Fit Mazda 3 04 08 2 0L | eBay
OBX:
With cat delete pipe: OBX Exhaust Down Pipe Cat Delete 04 06 Mazda3 Mazda 3 | eBay
Without cat delete pipe: OBX Racing Sports SS Exhaust Manifold Header 04 09 Mazda 3 Mazda3 2 0L 2 3L New | eBay
MSDS: http://www.msdsinc.com/exhaust.html

I don't see why the 2.0L header wouldn't fit the 2.3L. As far as I know both motors are externally the same.

I appreciate it, I believe I'm going to go with the vibrant due to them having the far best reviews and quality. Hopefully it's just a direct fit still lol

What are you trying to achieve.... if its more power you will see almost none... and if its exhaust tone i would replace the exhaust before id touch the header... why = messing with the header can cause a little torube with the o2#2 sensor that can be worked around but its a pia

Boosted baby....

BOOSTED

Right now I have a borla cat back exhaust with an APS short ram intake. I'm going for more tone. Plus a little more torque and horsepower
