    does it fit in an engine bay though. Looks good but really extended.

    I agree, it seems almost unneccesarily far from the block... how's it dyno compared to others (or have you not had the chance).

    he wouldn't go thru the trouble to make and have it not fit.

    his 1st header he made almost had 11 hp over a after market header

    both look like a direct copy of the an-r.com designs.

    bah, both headers won't clear in my CRX, my mount kit sits the motor a little closer to the front of the car than most other kits. If I get my tractions bars, then maybe i'll hit you up.

    That collector is a pipe flow annalyst's nightmare, but looks good overall. How did he size the pipes? Did he do any pipe tuning of sorts, or just copy an idea that was already in use and modify it for himself? just curious, not bashing on your friend of course. I can't be overly critical, because I have no idea how to even weld yet. next on my to learn list. props to your friend for being a cool enough guy to make you a header. now you just need another sheetmetal master friend to fab you some nice front fenders to cover those big slicks. :)

    he is going to school for automotive engineering so i think he did everything for a reason... also he runs a crab setup on his eg and he talks to people like bisimoto i am sure he knows whats up

    I'm just saying that there are better ways to prevent flow reversion, which is the reason he stated for doing the collector that way. a properly designed venturi would easily take care of the flow reversion problem, but I'm glad he is going to school in that particuar field. Like I said, I wasn't knocking him, just saying from an aerodynamics viewpoint, coming from someone with a background in aero, that pipe flow at that collector will be a major bottleneck in his design. I'm sure he'll find that out when he hits his fluid dynamics courses. But good job so far. I wish I had a buddy that would make me headers. I'm jealous :)
