No Shabsta had the same mods done as Noel at the time. He made the same power as Noel.

I meant he doesn't have the same mods any more :). But I guess he shouldn't make less power than he did originally anyway.

Shabsta's decatted and done some stuff to his car I think. Rickylee would be a better option, his car was, and still is, stock as far as I know, it should at least give an indication if the TRB dyno is still behaving the same as it was.
Actually i have two mods. ABP Fast Track setup, which apparently gives me about 5kw more :lol: and the MUGEN badges apparently gave me another 10kw :lol:
Bwahahahahahahahaha

I dont mind taking my car then, if you guys need me to.

You can if you like.
What we want to see is if their dyno is reading the same as in Feb.

@Chris, where would vtec typically come in with a race header.
Neo's torque curves looks like its going in opposite directions between 3k and 5k rpm. Points to the header to me, but best Ricky do a power run. Though who knows, he might get more now with colder temps, but i guess ambient correction should cater for that right?

Gonna do a 3rd gear run and send it to Chris to double check. As for Ricky I can arrange for a run at TRB for R150 on a Saturday morning. Let me know!!

On a stock car the vtec point should be around 3800. With a header it actually gives the low cam more power so vtec is best set around 4200-4500 but if you are not make more power it will cause the dip.

Hi All , i have had dyno runs done after every change i have made to my car , Run 1 : stock with 63mm mandrel bend pipe made 196 bhp.
Run 2 : add custom made cai 210 bhp . Run 3 : add flashpro and Map calibration ( thanks again Chris ) 220 bhp , i will try and dyno this weekend so we can see for sure what this header has done for the car , would have done it sooner but still trying to get the dam thing to fit properly . the dyno i use is a dastek and the tuners have no reason to play with the numbers as they have done no work on my car . will keep you all posted !

Has anybody asked the guys if they can group cylinders 1-4 and 2-3 together?

Do they also offer a full stainless steel system with a single exit setup?

How much for the whole system from header to outlet?

I am seeing a different manifold builder next week. I'll post some pics of what they offer. Should be much better though.

That sounds good! I've got the Megan Shorty header lying at home along with various other parts but no point installing it if there is something better at an affordable price. Does anybody know of an exhaust builder in SA that can do a mandrel bent system? I've got a press bend system in with the single outlet and although it sounds great it feels like its stealing power above the 6000rpm mark!

You can buy the bends and replace the crushed bends in your current exhaust. They are about R90 for 63mm 90 degree bend.

This is my header that Chris Bosson (Bosson Performance) built for me from a full on TODA PDF spec page. R.I.P Chris :closedeyes:

All bends, lengths, diameters and the rest is identical to that of the TODA. I picked up considerable gains with it compared to stock! :cool2:

45mm primaries, 50mm secondaries, 55mm to 60mm taper, then 63mm collector which flows into a 63mm single exit S/S system :evil:

Give me comments and views guys!

Dude I have been waiting to see these.

No thats how you copy a header. Nice smooth bends and clean welds.
Also the pairing of the cylinders are correct.

I can see that care and time was taken to build this.

@Chris: he took a whole frikn week to built just the header alone! I was going cold turkey after 3days of waiting!

Difference metal wise is that this is S/S 0.7mm whereas the TODA is extremely light inconel 0.2mm. Inconel is scarce and very strong, like that of titanium, hence the high price of the genuine TODA part! :)

I would've liked the TODA but hey... my pockets aint that deep yo! :(
