"Ice breaker" post.

Shipping: The LT's arrived very fast and were packed as if Fedex planned on throwing the box from the truck as they drove by without stopping....needless to say they were well packed ;)  10/10

Appearance:  As seen in previous pictures the header look very nice and appear to be a high quility peice.  I chose the merged collector for the slight advantage they provide. The ceramic coating is nice and adds a little bling to the bay. 10/10

Installation: Install was very straight foward and the best part about it was BOTH headers were able to be installed from above.( I didn't need to remove the starter or motor mounts)  The passenger side was an extremely tight fit. I needed to remove the valve cover and as soon as the planets were in perfect alingnent the header slipped in. The driver side had more room to easily slide the header into place but the merge collector came in contact with the tranny tunnel and prevented the bolts from all linning up. That was nothing a small hammer couln't take care of. (NOTE I DID NOT have to hit the firewall, just the tranny tunnel) after I put the header back on, I noticed there was not enough room above the vband to get the clamp on. (hammer time). I had no more issues after that.  I would rate this process a 7/10 but the fact that both headers went in from the top was a huge bonus for me.  And it should be noted that my steering shaft, brake booster, and ABS are not in the car at this time so i don't know how those parts will affect the install.  8/10

Performance: It will be a while longer before my car is running so someone else will have to chime in here. But I have no doubts these bad boys will perform as designed.

Overall experience: I'm very happy with my purchase and would like to personally thank Philip & Spoolin performance for the quality products and top notch service they provide. 10/10  :cheers:

Now for the pics...

Here you can see where the driver side merge collector comes in contact witht the tranny tunnel.


This pic shows the lack of clearance for the vband clamp.


Here you can see the beat up tranny tunnel. Large circle on the right is for the collector, small one on the left is for the vband clamp.


Here is the header installed after the the beating.


And now a view that's more pleasing to the eye.






Sorry for the crappy Iphone pictures. When I find my camera Ill get some better ones.

Got the Spoolin Performance headers roughly fitted. I will have more detailed pictures in the next few days. These fit nice and tight to the bottom of the car. There was little clearancing needed around the gas pedal area on the drivers side. These should not interfere with throttle pedal travel. I did need to clearance the tranny tunnel area where the collector is located. I still might need a little more there.

The passenger side needed more work. I basically needed to clearance up to the old AC drain tube hole. You can see in the pictures the remnants of the hole, and it gives a good reference as to how much room you need to make. The headers seem to fit very nice.

All of this was done with a mock up block so fitment is not quite exact yet. I will have more coming soon, and final comments when I get the real engine and transmission in the car.

Phil does great work and is a great guy! Back when i was 16 in my Honda days he helped me out massively with my janky turbo manifold and downpipe, beadrolling my I/C pipes, and welding me a dumptube for a great price. I'm glad he's now part of the v8rx7 community.

Ok ran into a little problem, I have the original Hinson Kit, the one where you had to give them your old subframe, I got my passenger side header in to problem quick and easy from the top. I can't get the driver side in, I have tried from the bottom, from the top, removed the valve cover, nothing seems to work! Is there something else I can try short of removing the head and installing the header then put the head back on. Help!!!!

what does it hit on the way in >?   and how far is your car lifted off the ground ? sometimes you need more ground clearance to really manuver the header in.
