Anybody knows if the GA16DE headers would fit the GA16i? Some people said compare the gaskets of the two engine, but I think the gasket for the GA16de is one piece and the gasket for the Ga16i is two. It looks very similar if you look at the manual. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks guys!

If you're really hung ho, pull the exhaust manifold off and see if the DE gasket fits the ports. Thats all I have to offer. I also think a Under drive crank pulley for the DE could be made to work. You guys should start hitting the scrap yards, spend some time tearing stuff apart and making some comparisons. Just my thoughts.

I agree!

I agree the GA16DE and Ga16i pulley is pretty much the same. I would like to get the header first coz its a better bang for the buck and then the pulley later on.

I remember a guy a few years ago, that had a B12 wagon who had Hotshot modify one to fit his car. I doubt they made a jig of it, but it may not hurt to give them a call on it.

I've installed my B13 Pacesetter Header more than a year ago and it is doing alright. Yeah it did made power especially with exhaust and intake combination. A Hotshot header should make even more since it is the best header made for the GA16DE. Forgot to mention that I have a GA16i not GA16DE, but it fit. You will need to modify the EGR pipe (extend it) and install a second bung for the AIV. I did not install the AIV. It did not make any difference or any problem at all. There a few more members who has a GA16DE header on their B12 GA16i.

Me too! It was a pretty easy thing as well. The HotShot header mated to the block fine but the crossmember btw the front bumper and the back of the engine bay needed a little (read, hammering a flange flat) modification. I also noticed improved gas milage, but maybe it had to do with needing to gun it less to get on and off the highway...
