We can offer both versions I suppose, but the new Green headers are a pure hit on every platform we have developed for thus far.

I am not going to lie here. Quality is something we strive on. These are all made in house, right here in the USA and not over in China. The problem is that so many have become so fixed on price because they have become accustomed to being raped for China crap that when it comes to quality American made goods, it becomes "well it costs too much."

You always get what you pay for. There are few exceptions to this rule in life.

This is especially true with such a raw product as these headers. Material, labor, R&D, profit, customer service. It basically comes down to material cost, human time, and profit. Whether or not they are "expensive" really depends on what you're comparing them to and what specifics you are considering when you make the determination of their value. I hope they are affordable for me, but it sounds like if nothing else, they will be made with pride right here in the USA. Looking forward to the next update.

Can we get a dyno with a catted vs a non catted version of your header when its all finished and maybe a sound clip. I know it is more work but it would make me happy.

I've been shopping getting custom made headers in my area and am very interested in these. Cats are good for me also. Wow can't wait to see these.

Can't wait for these and definitely don't mind the cats if you see its beneficial. Won't have to worry about emissions as much or at least know i'm not hurting the earth lol.

It's not like the NA cars that are going to be getting these headers w/o cats will be laying down 5 sec 0-100 times.

Why do you want to rice out a nice car?

Who says its rice? I have headers and they are wrapped tight, they added a little growl and some rasp at really high RPM's. When cruising I do not even notice it at all.

And if Dezod makes them with thicker walls and nicer mating flanges then it will be better than the crappy ass ones I have on now.

Man, some of you guys can't draw inferences very well.

NA cars (IS300s) aren't that fast in the grand scheme of things...never will be. Taking the cats out shows no significant differences in power in their other headers, just added noise, very smelly exhaust, and added other expenses.

Why do you want to make a bunch of noise and not be doing anything? That's rice. How many Civics do you see with these loud assed exhausts on them, giving the motor hell, and a guy on a bicycle passes them?

If you want to do that to your cars...that's cool just like all the other guys who you make fun of that are doing it too.
