Hey, wheres the Cobalt Addiction header! Thats what my 'Balt is rockin. Its great for the money, but I might switch out for another one later on. I just like it b/c it's collector size, and unlike SCDyne, it included all the gaskets I needed. Can't beat that. The Weapon-R header looks nice, but looks more suited for a 2.0SS/SC. I truely think that the CA header is the best one for us 2.4SS owners.

I have the ZZP header now. I like it..!! I banged on it a few times during installs and have a few little spots where the paint came off. The collector wasn't the most beautiful either.....it works though ;)

Well, Im more in for the all go and some show. So, looks doesnt matter in that dept. I like it because of the rugged look.

I just added the Hahn header, JBP, DC Sports and Clear Image.

I will update this whenever a new header comes out. :D

I also cleared up some picture issues. I guess anything hosted on .net doesn't work here. All fixed.

well, after alot of research, i've decided to sell my CA header and de-cat downpipe and get the Weapon-R long tube stepped header. However, i'm not gonna make the switch until I get the JBP tri-flow cams, b/c Weapon-R says the header is best suited to a car with high lift cams and a bit more tuned engine. So when I get the new header and cams, thats when im gonna get it tuned in w/ HP Tuners software. I'll let everyone know when this "phase 2" buildup commences in case anyone is interested in my header/downpipe. They've only been on my car since November, as I bought the header the week it came out, and the downpipe along with it. And like Doc, my header got banged up and chipped some paint on the install.......but how can you NOT do that! lol.

I got the GMPP Honed Header... The gains werent huge (my AFR is F(*^ed) but it did lean it out at lower RPMs. I got an overall gain of 2-3 hp and ft/lbs. When i get tuned it should get better.
