I recently was going to purchase headers, but my dad said something about them not being good for your car? He said something about it being bad for your engine and cutting its life short. Is this true or are they fine
thanks

nah dude get em. It may be worse for the environment if anything, lol. They are straight pipes and remove 2 of the factory cat converteres but u still have the main one on your y pipe. My header is sweet and will open up your car.

They could be bad for your car if there is a leak causing u to lose power and if u mess up the o2 sims when u transfer them over. Also, you will get a check engine light causing u not to have traction control. This however can be remedied by an O2 simulator from o2simulator.com. I have had the sim for over a year and over 10k miles and it rocks. It is around $40 bucks and easily solders into your car's ecu.

Hope that helps.
