So if these headers require a special tune, which they will not offer for any other SC kits, then really these headers are not available to ~90% of FI owners.

Wyatt, I'm not sure what you do not understand. We already discussed this over pm and responded to one of your posts on our threads, yet you are posting in every one of threads the same over and over again. We can tune FI application's and have done many but due to reasons already explained we only tune Active kits remotely. We have told you we can tune your car but you will need to bring it to us. We have had cars brought to us from Canada and all over the states. If you like please have your car sent to us.

Very interested to see how the catted version compares to Euro headers. Most of ARH's products are absolutely top-notch, something I'd gladly install in any of my vehicles.

Considering this is both a header and section 1 combo, the uniqueness factor of the design, and the price of SS Stepped V1s, I have a feeling this will be priced to be made from unubtainium. So eager to see the results of this. Hopefully the pricing wont be too far out of reach.

That's more detail than (and somewhat inconsistent with) what I was told by PM. And I suppose that's why I was posting, to get more of a response (and I didn't see the other reply). All clear now.

Here you go:

We weren't ducking your posts. Although not the most popular policy by Frank it's one he had to make. Tuning a FI car remotely is a lot more involved for him.

...if that makes sense..

In for dyno graphs and sound clips. I love me a good looking set of headers.

I must ask.. How does one squeeze these through a tight space and mate them with the head? Getting two-piece headers through from underneath can be a PITA if the angle isn't right, and I can't imagine getting these in, especially with the integrated sec. 1 and car on jack stands.

I can't be the only one that tried to replicate that noise by saying this aloud. ...I have no idea what that is supposed to "sound" like hahahaha.
