I got asked if my car was 4g63 swapped once, though to be honest it does sound like an evo with the longish tube equal length manifold.

I have read much about header types and the equal length always was interesting but often impractical.


Performance Header for 1989 1999 Miata MX 5 NA 1 8L Equal Length 2 Pcs Vband | eBay
Bought one. Second roachy-est header I have ever seen for any car. Comically poor fabrication, alignment and material. Oh yes, the design is completely wrong. No point in testing it. When a Maxim, Maruha and RB are within a few hp of each other, there is no way this thing would get close. Even if I am wrong (I'm not) and it actually makes power, I would not put one on my car if it were free. I'd be too concerned about significant portions of it falling off and killing some poor driver behind me.

For sale if you want it, make me an offer.

^^That post confused me.

Why is there an oil filter on the exhaust side of that motor...

Ahh, must be an intake manifold...

Wtf thats not a BP.

I have learned my lesson the hard way from buying Ebay junk headers (OBX and another), NO more, NO way.

I stopped trying to figure out what these people think looks good. There is nothing more beautiful then something engineered for pure function IMO.

That header is probably being built for a car like this



*yawn*

I like cars that do stuff

Equal length header means that the length of pipe that each cylinder exhaust gas travels prior to the connector is the same.
