$800 Surprise!

I was under the hood looking at my Brake Fluid container and happened to notice a plate on the header. A little rag wipe revealed "Vibrant Performance". A quick Google search reveals I have an $800 header!! My investment in this car get more gratifying each and every day!!!

LMAO! Might be a tad bit loud, since the car didn't come with the OEM headers.

I checked a couple sites. They really do want that much for them. Couldn't believe it either.

maybe for both the header AND downpipe. but the lowest i found was 500, which means they probably get wholesale for about 400

Could have been a trade in, and the dealer didn't know. Now you know there is custom stuff done. Like Xxen said, you have no idea whats been done to it. Need to datalog it and send that info to someone who knows what to look for.
