Do you guys want me to see about adding a rear o2 sensor in the cat pipe? The o2 won't stop the ses lights from the cats though. We use high flow cats that still trip the SES light.
Just got done installing my headers/catless mids I bought from you last week. They are bitchin, Huge power increase without a tune. my buddy backed up when I opened up the cutouts lol

FYI, the catless pipe adds some tone, I wouldn't exactly call it raspy but its louder.

No problem, just added the American Racing X-pipe to my exhaust setup. I have an appointment on the 06/06/2014 to have everything installed and tuned. Will try my best to have a before and after video to show the difference with the exhaust.

thanks for the support guys, I'm glad so many of you like the headers. Let me know if you guys want me to change/add anything to them. I'm up for making them how you guys like them. (as long as they make big power) No tri-y

Are there dyno charts comparing the 1 7/8 vs the 2" headers on the same car?

I'm curious if any low-end power is lost with the 2" primaries.

None. ...Which is why I went 2" right away rather than upgrading later.

The 2 inch made more power and torque everywhere in the RPM range than the 1-7/8th and the 1-3/4th. And likewise the 1-7/8th made more power and torque everywhere in the RPM rang than the 1-3/4th. But it is becoming a popular thing to say that the 1-7/8th headers have more down low power and torque even tho data has shown otherwise. The ONLY downside to having the 2 inch headers is that some of them have fitment issues.

This only happens in Honduh's and subaloosers!

I just installed my tsp 2"headers and I love the power and sound is sweeet but Im one of the unlucky ones the steering driveshaft knuckle is hitting one of the primaries. I tried putting a dimple on it with them installed but I think Im going to take it off and dimple it unless one of you guys can give me another idea i already heated it with the mapp torch and tried a prybar I almost got it but not quite still I think theyre great

2" is the way to go in any combo. Bolt Ons on up!! For someone to suggest that they will make you loose lowend power vs a 1 7/8 header is cow manuda! My car has ran them both and I went faster with 2"! And they are the SAME PRICE! You can't beat that.

Adding a merge spike and rear o2 bung on the 2" can only make them even better - keep us posted.

I just bought a set of these Thursday bolted them on Friday and everything went well just made my car louder than I thought but other than that they are good!!!! But one thing I cant seem too understand is the O2 senser deal cause I unplugged the ones that goes to the top of motor which I think is the upsteam then I unplug the ones that was down steam close to trans I was told that I was suppose to get a extended cord to plug in the O2 senser but the ones I got goes to the back ones not the upsteam like I was told so I plugged up the back and didn't use the extended cause the stock stuff was long enuff.....

That would be great if this could be added. I'll be ready to order then.

No, you'll see your gains higher up towards the top of RPMs.

Your supposed to remove the rear O2 and keep the front o2, the extension adapter just gives you more room to play with so you can tuck the wire away from the headers. I've heard stock wire reaches when you unclip it but how close is it to your pipes?

I'm not sure about extension plugs either. We didn't use them on mine and just unplugged the stock wires from the harness at the body
