Nice write up! Pretty cheap mod. I wish I didn't live in Cali. Can you explain what part you had to cut for the midpipe section. I am curious to know how this is different for the 96+.

Ant runs the 96+ midpipe on his car. It's a direct bolt on for 95's, so that part doesnt change depending on the year.

On the stock midpipes, they go all the way up into the engine bay to meet the short OEM manifolds. These headers are a bit longer, so they extend out of the engine bay. Basically, in short, the OEM midpipes have to be shortened, and then have custom flanges welded on to meet up with the new headers.

Ant, correct me if i'm wrong, but this is how I understood it after you showing me

So for the 96+ do you have to take out the cats or any of the O2 sensors for the headers to fit?
