There seems to be a shortage of 323 headers on eBay. I shall do some investigation.

What's the suggested aftermarket highflow CATS?

For those going with Headers .... what HighFlow CATS did you go with? Recommend? Clearance problems? As I've lowered the car a little with suspension mods.

You're in Florida dude, don't worry about the cats. But if you really want to, PM AdamBath, he recommended some, but I forget what they were.

ok i have a question is there any way to set these up (some kind of cats, etc.) so that i won't get a SES so i can still pass inspection. I would rather not have to deal with mesing around with O2 sensor to get them to pass the obdII because there is no sniffer in mass.

Shark won't do it. You'll need a custom tune like from Active Autowerke, to trick the computer into thinking the O2 sensors are reading correctly.

Actually, come to think of it, you might not even need it with the racing cats. I'm not sure.

Adam? Care to chime in?

some clarification from "Ivan"

Yes Fran You are right!
I'm sorry . Yestoday, I picked the same short harf from our stock by mistake. You know they very similar.
The angle, the size of single hole flange are different. also the diameter of outlet pipe is different! you can see it in attached pictures ! B RIvan Ying


It appears that Ivan has headers if anyone needs them...

he's got those pics backwards, the 325/330 header is labelled 323/328, and vice versa. the longer ones are 325/330 headers, not the shorter ones.

Hey adam, I noticed you live in plano. Do these headers cause any problems with emissions in texas?
