I don't think you can really go wrong either way. I think that I did read somewhere that there were a few incidences where an OFH header cracked at the welds, but this was a while back and I have not heard anything since then. Perhaps someone else could chime in on this.

I chose the Tomei because not only is it proven to be a quality product performance wise, but I also like the visual quality (the finish, the welds, etc.). It was also in stock at a local shop, so that was the final deciding factor.

Here you go! You can ooooh, ah ahhhhhh all over it. SHINY!!!

it does look pretty!

If i do end up purchasing the tomei, do I need to buy the O2 spacer for CEL? or will the stage 2 tune take care of the CEL for me?

also is it possible to use the stage 2 tune made for OHF with these tomei headers? or do you just use the regular stage 2 UEL tune that came with the OFT?

Isn't it?!?!

The tune will take care of the CEL. As for the tune OFH, that's the beauty of it. The header designs are physically so similar that you can actually make use of the OFH specific tune. I know that people, myself included, have data logged it, and it runs without a hitch. I run mine on Ultra 94, as the tune calls for higher octane fuels.

So theres no point in me buying the O2 spacer right? I can only get 93 here in florida. I know the OFH specific tune is supposed to be more "aggresive" than the regular stage 2 UEL tune. since I can only get 93 would it be safer for me to just do the regular stage 2 tune to avoid putting to me stress on my engine. Im just gonna use it for fun Daily driving, I dont really take it to tracks or nothing.

Nope, no spacer needed, and you will be fine with 93, in fact, that's what I think most people run. Anything above 91 octane is recommended, though I have even read that Shell V-Power works as well.

Good to know. So essentially, a quality fuel above 91 Octane.
