i know they are made for the e16 but has anyone made them for the ga16. and is it just me or is there a lot more parts for the e16? why is that?

also i am having some problems with my motor making a rattling noise only when it gets warmed up. it sounds like metal tapping about 10 times a second. and at low rpms it sounds like someone dropped a screw in the thing. any ideas?

Some people do have custom headers that have been made. As for commercial headers there are non to speak of.

About the rattling, its most likely the heat sheilding on the exhuast. Mine makes the exact same noise, im dremeling it off piece by piece becasue it is rusted to hell..

dude , its time for u to checkout ebay because believe it or not i had ur problem. i always saw headers for ur car but never mine. and they usually start at 60-75 bucks. this is NOT a joke. there are several companies that feature that header on ebay all the time. i can get my headers anytime from pacesetter , but im just not ready to kick out $180 . happy hunting on ebay!

My car makes a noise like you describe. It is loudest when decelerating from 2000 to 1000 rpm in neutral.

I was told by a mechanic who listened to it that it is a broken or loose timing chain guide. Another mechanic who drove the car and opened the valve cover says that it is a rocker arm that is rattling but that it is ok and probably not worth the labor of opening up the engine to fix it. I still don't know what it is for sure, but the car drives fine.

That's the correct thing the mechanic said to you that it's the timing chain guide that's crapping. I know because I'm about to purchase a 3rd b12 with the same problem, but I got news for it "CA18DET"...................Any ???????????
