^^Exactly.

You need measurements of the piping in order to make a judgement also. Looks too stock to me.

because any company selling their stuff on ebay and not an online store doesnt have proper R&D of their products...

they probably used a tube bender to bend those pipes instead of it being mandrel bent...

i bet the welds are crap, and it probably makes you lose power.

No, because they don't know what fucking make a Celica is. If you want me to take a stock header, and chrome it for ya, I will, I've got spare time.

That's most likely what that is. Don't buy something if you don't have a dyno for it, and make sure that the dyno is authentic.

If you wanna save money, then do whatever the fuck you want to. You're not gonna see any gains though, and with some headers, you may lose Performance.

But if you wanna save money, then you'll get what you pay for.

Don't go asking people for their opinions and fucking say that they are wrong, just because you want a fucking pat on the back. I'd also look into a performance mod chip along with a Cold Air Intake made of PVC piping.

Butt dyno is not even applicable in terms of actual wheel hp gains.

No one has tested it 'cuz we're not gonna put no name brand parts our our car, especialy Performance parts from ebay. If you wanna be the guinea pig & mess up your car, knock yourself out.

BTW...why would they call it a Honda Toyota Header if both car makers have different header designs?

the answer is simple. do you trust some random guy on ebay whom is selling a header in which you know nothing about and will cost you $170.99??? to me the answer is obvious but this one you gotta figure out on your own
