Question megan racing header/lower exhaust manifold

Just looking for anyone's opinion on the megan racing header/lower exhaust manifold? Good results, bad results? Difficult installation? etc.

It's a good price that's for sure. I have no 1sthand experience but I've heard good and bad. Installation shouldn't be too difficult if your somewhat mechanically inclined.

Yeah me to, haven't used one, but i've heard good things about Megan products, usually good quality and fitment... i'm not sure if the Megan manifolds are equal-length or not, but FYI, if it is then you will lose some of the rumble from the exhaust, it makes the sound smoother, but whatever i don't think the sound change will be too much, or that you'd care either. just saying

hey i have the megan racing header, dp ,and catback. i like it but i just put the header on the only problem is you have to hammer a part of the frame to make it not hit. and i have head of people blowing the welds at the collector. but you cant beat the price.

The Megan Exhaust Manifold is unequal length and you will need to modify your subframe to get it to fit properly.

I believe someone else mentioned it and I have read that you have to hammer at your crossmember or something to "make room" for it.

To me it would never be worth beating my car to "make room" for something like that. But I suppose that is just a personal preference.

the metal you hit out of the way is just the metal left over from when then made the subframe so i do not think it is very structural imo.

No hammering for the BPM. Agency Power also makes a nice header..but I have not had a chance to test fit it yet.
