Could someone with the shorty header tell me if after they put it on their exhaust rattled as a result.

I am getting a nasty metal buzz when I rev it or the car is under load, my dealer says it is because of increased flow and it is just the exhaust resonating.. I think they are full of it. Could someone help me out???

It is resonation...I had it too...even with my Bosal
It is worse with a race header or shorty header/off road pipe combo.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Before you spend the money and expect the noise to be gone, what header did you get and which revision of that header? The 1st (& 2nd I think) Gen JBA's were missing a reinforcement connection that prevented that resonation. With or without a catback that resonation existed. Just some info for yah.

I have the focussport shorty header, it has the bracket that connects the single out to the block.
