So I picked up a pair of DNA Motoring Headers of Amazon.
Yes, I was very skeptical and yes they are very cheap and most certainly not a Figs Header.
But I've read a few previous threads that mentioned them and for the price (even if they didnt work out) I was willing to give them a try.
I noticed several threads discussing the requirement to bang in the firewall to accommodate the 02 Sensors. (Much like the Megan Racing Headers - which I believe the DNA Motoring headers are the knock-off of)
I just wanted to provide an update that they must have Revised the bung location because they were practically plug and play. The most difficult part of the install was getting the old headers out because of the Y-Pipe Flange hitting the bell housing.
To that note: I did however, have to basically loosen every screw of the throttle body but eventually the header came out all together.
I mated the DNA Motoring Header with a Megan Racing Y-Pipe and Apexi N1 Catback.
- Past 4K and the car just screams. Definitely not street legal.
I did want to point out that I used a "L" Bend Anti-Fouler for the Post Cat 02 located on the header manifold but not on the Y-Pipe o2 Sensor and have been running successfully without any CEL.
- I wanted to avoid an 02 sim kit as much as possible.
- Here in Wisconsin there are no visual inspections - as long as there is no CEL you pass emissions.
Just thought this kit may be of benefit to anyone looking for a budget set of headers in states that dont require or perform visual inspections.
DNA Motoring Header: $114.00USD
CNT Anti-Fouler Kit: $17.99USD
All-in-all total header and anti-fouler package installed for: $132.00USD!
Took about...maybe: 8 hours total?
