Search "OBX bellow" for a weld-in bellow joint and pick your size. I couldn't find the pre-fabbed flex-pipe he was talking about, although there was a cat-delete pipe for $60, but it didn't have a bellow joint.

Also, PB blaster. Spray it on the night before you want to work on the car, and let it soak in until you work on it in the morning.

my bolts came off easy as butter and mines an 04 although I would of had to take my motor mounts off and rock the engine forward to get my old one off but i just yanked the motor and trans out time to rebuild.

After the cat does everyones oem pipe have the bolts welded?

You do realize it is a header, singular. It annoys the shit out of a lot of people and it sounds un educated and ricetastic when you say you have headers on your 4cyl car simply a header.

Now say it with me.

My car has a header

Help Obx header install...

whos the ricer now? ;)
[/quote]

not me, I dont have any ricey shit on my car and if you call a nitrous system ricey you just called so many pro street cars ricey. I guess a clean sedan with work done is ricey. Cosworth must be a ricer part company right?

IMO your a dumb ass with a small dick compensating with your turbo, we understand.

record is 167 and they went with a full build, no turbo 3=no where near 200hp
[/quote]

I don't think thats the record. In the past we have had an n/a car that has reached over 170whp. Currently there is one person who recently dynoed at 168whp without building the motor.

id like to see that dyno.

the cars been around for 5 years and every serious build is here, there is no secret mods or special set ups.

:lol: every teenager with their first car comes in a claims a huge build, never seen one.......it amazes me how kids are blowing up sub 150hp motors and still thinking the car is made for more power. fully bolted you wont get 30 hp its just the way the car is.
daddy didnt buy you a fast car.........
