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?

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 ???????????
