This is a Gauging Interest Thread for a Group Buy on the ExoticSpeed header FOR THE 2.0L and the 2.3L now!. I called them up and setup an account as well as discussed the product and after alot of talking, we are ready to have a GB to save you guys some money.

-100% Stainless Steel Construction
-4-2-1 Design
-2nd O2 sensor anti-fouler (to prevent check engine lights)
-Extra O2 Bung for aftermarket widebands (for tuning if you want to use it)
-2.5" Collector Pipe, perfect size for aftermarket cat-backs
-Bolt-in, no modifications, just like stock.
-Save weight compared to stock and Gain HP (most dynos on the forums gain 10-15whp)
-Replaces first cat!
-High Quality TIG Welded

Pic:



We are also giving a special offer on our M3M straight pipes when you buy a header! Replaces second cat, made for use with aftermarket cat-backs that clamp on the stock cat. Ie Borla, magnaflow, mazdaspeed, etc.





GI Pricing (ONLY HAVE 10 UNITS AT THIS PRICE!):
Header Only: $350 shipped in the USA (can ship to canada, will be small addition)
Header and Straight Pipe: $435 shipped in the USA (can ship to canada, will be small addition)

Looking to get 10 VERY INTERESTED people on the GI list. These units are in stock and ready to ship, so once we get people on the list that are SERIOUS, we can make this happen. A few back-up people would be good, in case a few back out. If we get another 10 interested, I can do round 2, but only 10 at a time right now.

Thanks!

Re: GI: ExoticSpeed Mazda3 2.0L Header!!!!

I wonder if it's possible to join the GB and go and pick it up for myself. I'm 10 minutes away from their shop.

Makes no sense to ship it out to you guys and then I get charged a excess fee for shipping it back to it's origin.

They are drop shipped ;)

I can shoot an email asking about the local pick-up though. Where are you located?

Strato- It will sound the same as any header, mainly the vibrant, since its a very similar design, except WAY cheaper!

This is an awesome chance to get a Great piece at a great price!

These are different from the F2 in that they don't have any cats (meow). the F2 on sale right know I think is the only one that keeps a cat. This Exoticspeed one is very similar to the Vibrant 4-2-1. Performance wise I'm guessing that the Exoticspeed one will give you more power since there will be less restriction with no cats, but it's also probably illegal with no cats not that that's a problem. ;)

He is referring to the Thunder header, the F2 is similar to this one, and deletes the cat.

This one deletes the cat, the thunder replaces with high flow. More power with this header. Yes, Direct bolt on. It mounts to stock exhaust or any cat-back that replaces the stock, no problems there. I think there is a walk through on the boards, but Im not sure where, I will have to do some searching.
