YES, anything that doesnt give the car only 4 inches of clearance... Ive had to replace mine twice now because of dips in the road or bumps.

It's doubtful you'll find anyhting better than what's on it now. I'm assuming those who have "bottomed out", have lowered their cars? I've never hit mine, with stock suspension.

There aren't any headers out yet. Not sure if we'll see any. The only downside to our header is possibly weight. The design seems solid enough, but since it's double walled, it's quite heavy!

I smacked mine on a curb when I was about to back in the driveway on a stock suspension. I hit it so hard that the header, 02, and cat had to be replaced. They needed to have the front lip be a little lower.

A racing header that elimnates the cat would be something that I'd buy if they make it.

That would be a pretty long header, why dont you just go for the FC ORP?

P.S. NEVER bang my header and I have scratched my small plastic bumper piece quite a few times.

i've hit mine hard enough to slice the o2 wires off......but that was a little airborne fun
. I do hit it on speedbumps regulary and i can hit it in driveways and parking markers too. Stock suspension.

i've smacked the header once, and put a small gash in it, but it was my fault.

I slightly scraped/dented the header on my SVTF just from parking blocks thinking the tires would hit first like all my other cars did
.Anyway no true damage done but I learned to avoid pulling close when parking now.Several jetters have dented their headers because it sits so low on the SVTF's.

As far as performance headers go I don't think they are out as of yet for our cars but I could be wrong.

If you ever need a tow, make sure to get flatbed - cause that how i got a ding in mine. No problems here otherwise ?
