I am trying to find an MCS header that will bolt
to stock exhaust, and is NOT "for offroad use only".
Also be California smog legal.
I know MiniMania has a header but it is "for offroad use
only". London Stainless also has one, and it's $1300. They
don't say its use. There is mention of BMP on this site,
but I could not find anything in BMP web site.
Battleship Grey Metallic/B/B MCS
with every option known to man/BMW
less CD changer and NO car problems.
no header on a obd 2 car is legal but if you get a header with a cat it will pass emisions but probably won't pass the visual test no matter you don't have to smog your car for the next 5 years. If you are intrested i have a supersprit header with the factory cat so it would be direct replacement no cutting or welding and you could put it back to stock whenever you wanted. I paid about $700 for the headers and if you have ever priced the factory cat it's about $1200. I'm sellig it both for $700.
Just under a £1000 + fitting so say £1200 on the car as a guestimate at today's prices. I'm of the belief that the manifold will be more tuned towards the 210hp conversion than another system, back box's are irrelevant IMO but manifold's are were gains can be found.
