Have had a few requests for sound clips of the Cargraphic race headers paired with the factory PSE.

Enjoy

And there we have it! Another successful group buy in the books. Thanks everyone who participated, and took advantage of the great deals we were able to pass along. Everyone should have received tracking yesterday for their inbound headers. Please post some photos and reviews once they are received!

Thanks again,

Wray

Bought mine from you last October before this latest group buy. I had mine coated at Swain with White Lightning, headers and cats. Then painted them with Rustoleum 2000 deg. high heat paint, using their 2000 deg primer and flat black. took about 2 cans of primer and 1.5 of flat black. I followed the instructions on the can where the painted parts are baked in an oven at increasing temperatures, 30 min hot, 30 min cool, at 250, 400 and 600 (my oven only went to 550). Didn't emit much smell, no smoke, during baking. I installed using Stage 8 bolts for header to cylinder head in 25 mm length except for the 2 passing through the bracing bracket and used 30 mm on those. This provided almost identical thread engagement as the OEM bolts considering the Cargraphics flange is quite a bit thicker than the OEM. Probably wasn't necessary, but I'm moderate OCD, so humor me. Yes, they are installed on my BS, don't have the GT4 any more, but same-same from header perspective, I bought the GT4 primary tubing OD version. Took my first drive last night with stock ECU tuning, only about a 15 mile drive. Definitely noticeable increase in torque below 4,500 RPM which is what I was looking for. I have PSE, and as far as I could tell the sound level was same as OEM headers at cruise and small throttle openings. But with pedal 3/4 to the floor, the sound is noticeably louder above 2,000 RPM and at 5,000 and above sounds awesome. I love it. I didn't buy for sound but the change is all good as far as that goes, IMO. FWIW, you don't lose more than 0.5 lbs per side compared to OEM headers if you weigh all the brackets/bolts that go with each.

Thanks to Wray for his support through the process, I am a happy BGB customer .

I will keep you in mind when we plan another round! In the meantime if you can't wait, feel free to shoot me a PM and I'll see what we can do.

Great write up, Mark! The coating turned out awesome, and should noticeably reduce engine bay temps. Glad to hear you are enjoying your sport headers!
