    everyone is going to tell you porting your stock exhaust manifold would be the best option without consequences. Some will tell you the OBX header is junk because it cracks. Most of the people that used the OBX or forza header welded in a flex pipe and had no problems. Its all personal preference. I still have to put on my forza header :)

    Getting an after market header for a car that maxes out on 120HP without a turbo is a waste.

    agreed port stock header...

    you might even get more mpg out of it cause of pumping efficiency improvements

    from the front side, there are some lips in the holes, and in the down-back side when all the pipes come together, there is usually a BIG ASS weld mass thing in the middle, grind that down...

    IF by any reason afterwards you get exhaust leaks, weld on the outside, and grind some more in side then to make it perfect.

    I did my own sway bars, it not that difficult, but you have to drop the gas tank down to change the rear bar, but to do that you have to drop the exhaust. If you have a one piece aftermarket exhaust then I dont know how you can do it. But I had stock exhaust and I tried to unbolt it but of course the bolts just broke off, so I had to drill them out and rebolt it up. It kinda sucked but the new sway bars are awesome

    it's not hard. it IS a pain in the ass, due to the configuration. something as stupidly simple as changing spark plugs almost guarantees busted knuckles, even if your hands are little like mine.
