Check out my new header. Its Racing Solution new header for the 2.2. Install went smoothly No modifications were required and everything fit perfectly I would recommend this header to anybody with a 2.2 looking for a shorty header.







Look how much of a difference there is from the stock collector


And it meets up with the size of the stock downpipe perfectly!



After the install I felt a pretty decent gain! And no noticeable loss of low end torque!
Now all i need is a LSJ down pipe!

THANKS AGAIN TO RACING SOLUTION!

I installed it yesterday 2/26 and so far no CELs.

I do not have SAI so yes it works for non SAI balts!

I really like it! Before i could feel the engine kinda choke at real high rpms but now its just a steady pull all the way to redline!

I'm guessing you replaced the bolts and studs. How did you remove them? I'm going to be getting a cat-back soon and so far all I've come up with is cut them off and drill it out.

No, Actually I just sprayed the bolts down with some penetrating fluid before i tried to loosen them. Everything went really smoothly

I'm pretty sure the primaries are 1.5 inches. I didn't measure them though.. and the collector is 3 inches. Pretty much perfect for the 2.2. At first i thought the collector might be a little too big, but the opening for the downpipe measures 3 inches! So it worked out great.

Daman...that header looks sharp! Why is it listed only for the 2.2?
Good question! I'm sure it would be fine for the 2.4!

That's what I'm thinking..but unless the manufacturer states that I'm hesitant on purchasing -- just in case they found something...there's always some little part just not quite right...LoL

Good news guys.. the 2.0/2.4 SS header has been redesigned so it will be stainless like the 2.2L one.. ALSO, the exit port is larger like the 2.2L as well...I'll be updating pics shortly

Oh yeah, the heatshield takes a little hand bending but it still fits over the header for that "stock" look!

You can only use 2 of the bolts though, the other bolt hole was in the stock manifold
