Correct. With cats, she made great power. Without, we would expect to see another 3-7% power increase. Not to mention this is on an auto trans. Manual gains would see more for sure. The auto trans eats power for lunch.

With cams and some tuning, these would REALLY light up for sure.

You're right. We should have. Again, this was a prototype and things where not pristine to begin with.

The cats are fully functioning OBD2, 49 state legal cats and should easily pass emissions tests in just about any state except CA.

We are working out the details for an intro pricing.

The cats have a 5yr/50K warranty from the manufacturer.

Pricing is just about complete and it appears that we have come in higher than where we wanted to, but the quality and performance of these headers speaks volumes for themselves.

Regular retail will be $1313.00, the intro Group Buy pricing will be $1125.60 for the Green headers. Link to reserve a set at this pricing is below.

I have had some PMs and emails.....I want to clarify a few things here.

1) You can not have quality without a price tag. China offers the price tag, but lacks HARD in quality.

2) These are all made, designed and tested here in the USA. Be proud of where you live!

3) There are other brands that offer inferior parts (laser cut machined flanges, mild steel pipes, formed merge collectors, 2 bolt flanges, no cats etc). The Dezod headers offer CNC cut flanges with gasket traces, stainless tubes, v-band connections and high flow OBD2 cats). I urge you to check out companies like PPE, Bisimoto and a few others to see their header prices. You will see we still come in VERY competitive. (AGAIN, not dogging any of these companies. They all do excellent work for their niche markets, but comparing raw material quality, we are superior)

4) Let's face the facts. Some mentioned Magnaflow, if you where to buy the sub-par mangnaflow stuff, buying BOTH their header and y-pipe to compare apples to apples, you would be around $950-1000. We are asking a few hundred more LIGHT years of fab quality, parts and performance.

5) Superior design here. We make the same and more power WITH cats than China made headers without cats! Good ol USA wins again! We also have appropriate O2 locations, EXCELLENT ground clearance and better fitment and install than all out on the market.

6) Lastly, we understand not everyone will buy these. These are a premium item and if someone wants an item that is uncompromised quality, then this is your set of headers, hands down.

Dezod about hits it on the head with this one:

Once you hold this header system in your hands and look at it compared to anything else. You can instantly tell the build quality. The welds are phenomenal! The runners inside the ports are smooth, fitment is great! Did i mention how light this entire setup is compared to stock? I still have my stock headers and y pipe in the garage. I would be willing to weigh these and have Dezod post how much their Green setup weighs.

Want more pictures of the Dezod Green header installed on my car? I can do that if needed.
