I've been reading things on headers ever since I got the car in 2014 but never quite pulled the trigger on one apart from that used gutted stock header.
My requirements were and are still:
- No rasp. I absolutely hate raspy exhaust.
even a tiny bit of rasp, like in this video
Could a wrap avoid raspiness? Well, I'm not a big fan of wrap either... apparently they deteriorate the exhaust quicker.
- EL preferably
- Best correction of the torque dip (yes EL is not the best for this...)
- Least heat in the engine bay
- under 1000$
- Something that makes the best out of the OTS tunes


I really thing the Ace Header is too much... 1600$ + 1000$ tune + customs taxes 500$... I'd rather go FI at this point.
In French we say, we can't have the butter and the money for the butter (don't worry, I am Belgian, not French).

I'm not in a hurry so I might want to get a used one.

The problem is, with the GT86 is that, you don't want to throw too much money in it since, for 10k more, you can easily a mid-engined, 6-cylinder beauty from Stuttgart, if you see what I mean...

Regarding the maintenance, I'll replace the serpentine belt this weekend. I'll keep you updated, for those interested.
Have a nice day

I feel like my overall car's behaviour has changed with the new oil...
Is it me or could it be possible that the differential oil has an impact on how the rear of the car behaves?

I feel that, overall, my car is now kind of 'blurry', I feel now that there is a noticeable transition when the transmission is under load or not. Especially with the diff. The rear of the car becomes kind of 'wavy' if that makes sense for you. Like if the dampening was softer when I release the throttle.

Could that be possible?
Overall I feel like the car is heavier. I will see if I get the same feeling with an empty tank. Might just be the fuel moving that creates this effect.
