after 6 hours of hell, my headers are finally on. that was really frustrating, especially since most of the work was done at night in the cold. well anyway the car really pulls at low rpm's and the note is significantly louder. maybe i'll do a write up but not tonight. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

oh yea they are HVE 4-2-1 headers.

I own a 91' Hyundai Excel and so far I all I have is a K&N Filter and an Aerospeed exhaust. Does anyone know where I can get a header for my 1.5 liter engine?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

lol, beditone did yours make a whistle sound at all? i asked one person and they said they did but it wasn't as loud as i say mine is. i'm trying to figure out what this is, i'm guessing exhaust leak but i'm not completely sure yet. my car sounds like complete ass with that high pitched squealing noise. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>

Thanks Rudy...I was told the 4-2-1 headers are really good for low end speed but not that noticeable at higher revs.

Hopefully it aint long before I get mine on! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Then following that I am looking at getting a better muffler...anyone got any suggestions?

Hmm, Squel... Thats screwed, Did you replace the gasket on header? Did it seem damaged at all? I can imagine that squel would drive you crazy. Lemme know how it works out.

i did replace my gaskets but with original Accent one's...it dampened the whistle a little but not completely if you want it gone completely you have to go with aftermarket gaskets that are thicker then the originals<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
