Got mine at Versus Motorsports in Phx, AZ for $140 new. But this was over a year ago. Probably freed up a few ponies to the crank midrange... made the car breathe better.

OK,... well if your friend can find a better quality header for the GA-motor than Hotshot, please let us know. We would be very interested, especially individuals like Michael Young and Mike Kojima. :D

I just installed my Focuz Header, and If any of you have questions about what you need to do to put it on or to take the old ones off, just send me an e-mail or something

I'm a rookie at working with cars and it was suprisingly easy. The only problem I had was being stubborn and tryin to take out the old header all in one piece, it seperates for a reason. Make sure you have some kind of spray to loosen the bolts though. I will work on some sort of lil write up thing later on tonite. The only problem I had was with one of the O2 sensors and it not lining up properly so i had to undo it from the rear and then align it up first. . .i have pictures and i was sorta anal about taking pictures. I dirtied up my digi-cam pretty good, but it was worth it.

What about power increase? Exhaust sound?

this may be weird, but the sound is actually much quieter now when i'm cruising at 50-70 MPH. When i gun it it makes a beatiful noise :)

Power has definately increased lots! I find myself putting less on the gas and still going a decent speed :)

I definately reccomend it.

My header did the same thing (Focuz). I think it has something to do with it flowing more air, or the way the exhaust manifold (now header) is bent. My header seemed to quiet down my intake as well. I agree about the power increase.... not sure if yours is an automatic, but on mine I gained mostly in low and midrange of the powerband, which an auto needs.

how much does this header cost again. do you people who says it sound quieter do you have an aftermarket exhaust to? this is what i want, more power and less noise. i don't want the ricer sound or the deep performance sound i want it quiet so i can hear my 2000 watt stereo (when i'm finished with it)

i got mine for 185 with shipping and all from a friend of xtreme. I was happy, I do not have an aftermarket exhaust(yet) and the rice sound is exactly what i was trying to get rid of.

THe FOCUZ header has definitely made my "buy soon" list. It doesnt seem to be half the problem Pacesetter and OBX have been around here.

I still would rather have the Hotshot but.... U all know how that goes

With my dynomax setup, you can barely hear the exhaust at 60mph or even going 40mph. The only times you hear it are at idle and full acceleration. Even during the acceleration my custom CAI makes more noise inside of the car. Outside the car I think it sounds good. Take a listen at my website.

Anyone have dyno's or anything with the Focuz headers vs. hotshot? Are these only for 95-99 or also for the 94's?

Where does the power start coming in, about where do you feel the torque pulling the car? I'm wondering because I'm going to have my 3,200 stall in my car soon.
