Hey everyone.
Has anyone used or know someone who has used chikara headers? I have a friend who said he would trade for my stock plus cash and was wondering if anyone know's where the power gains would be.

Thanks!

I have a chikara header and it rusted up pretty badly after a year but it works. I'm thinking of getting a ebay header next.

I bought one for my friend, he told he got a small increase in performance, but the build/weld quality is plain horrible, as is the painted finnish that burns out after first startup. Then it'll rust out. IIRC flange holes were not too well aligned either.

I agree with others, stay away with that crap and get yourself stainless eBay header, you'll be much happier with it.

I say if you're going to go out and buy a header make it one worth your investment. Now maybe you're not trying to make a whole lot of power out of your car, which then I guess a ebay header will be fine. But if you're trying to build your motor, get a good header.

i got a spare chikara header (no downpipe, but you can get one made for $20 at any exhaust shop), i'll seel it to you for $30 if you real want one that bad... if not, i suggest you go to k2motor.com or eGay. its the best you'll get for cheap but new headers.

Oh k, i take it as bad headers. Haha, thanks for the heads up before i made a move guys!

I also got a no brand intake, that i definitely felt the power increase. i dont care if its no brand, i got it for FREE!! :]
