header questions
I searched this a few different ways and didn't quite come up with what I was looking for so here goes. I'm in the market for some headers for a 330i ZHP the only company I really trust is Doug Thorley unfortunately they have nothing for a 330i.

I found some on bimmerbrakes.com for $255

found a set on ebay made by "top speed pro-1"

And the AA headers for $1100.

are the AA headers worth $800 more than the rest of them? I need something that deletes the cats. does anyone have suggestions of headers? or even a full system that removes ALL the cats/resonators?

Search for Kpeng's thread on headers. Bimmerbrakes headers are great and they're about to come out with equal length headers for 330's, GL :thumbup:

If you want some catless headers, sit in the classifieds section and wait for a set of Technik Gen3s to pop up. Expect to pay close to $800. These are going to net better gains than anything out there right now.

If you need to go a little more budget, go BimmerBrakes. They are actually working on a set of replicas for the above mentioned, too.

If you need to keep cats in the car, go with Magnaflow. Small gains, but you'll stay legal.

Do not pay $1100 for AA headers.

Early 2013 is the ETA on the new headers...

Bimmerbrakes headers are great!! Just my .02 I'd stay away from eBay unless u got a shop preset to possibly help with some shitty welds and bad bends

i'm thinking of going with the bimmerbreaks headers. how can I stay leagal in CA? do I have to add cats downstream or can you pass smog with using stock exhaust back w/o cats? also what o2 sims would i need. thanks for any info.
it would be going on a 02 325i auto.

if youre in cali i cant imagine the headaches headers would cause. its not worth it at all if you live where they do emissions testing.

Finding cats that woun't set a CEL will also be a challange.
