Default kamikaze headers

does anyone know n y thing about these headers. if so does it work and n y problems. i know they eliminate the pre cat but still use bank 1 O2 sensor and still uses 2nd cat with bank 2 O2 sensor. bigjoshracing said must use mil eliminator on 2nd O2 sensor. i have heard rumorsthat kamikaze causes alot of problems. please let me if anyone has good reviews or if it is actually worth getting i cant afford rippmod headers.

Honestly getting any header including the RIPP header you will not be seeing huge gains unless you have done some serious mods and even then it is minimal. We dynoed a RIPP at only 3hp gain to the wheel. Kamakazi's I have heard no problems with on a Galant.

IMO if your only wanting to get a header for show purposes then purchase one and powder coat it.

Depending on the state you live in your probably not going to pass smog. Expecially in Cali where I am from. Not sure where you live or how hard your smog laws are. Non of the headers are smog legal.

thanks for your help. i ordered the kamikaze and taking to to my local custom exhaust shop. they have a way to make this all legal. they will install the header, a hi flow cat that acts like two cats and relocate my 2nd O2 sensor with a bung after this new cat. all this plus the proper piping i need. thanks for your tips it helped alot.

thanks, Jason (et2sub)

i know were talkin bout kamikaze and ripp headers...but i have a quick question about obx headers.. whether or not there is any modification involved for a 2002galant es.. it seems like the piping at the bottom is short? anyone knows if the 2piece obx headers are bolt on or need some modification? thanx.
