Re: OBX 4-2-1 Header...
Hey guys , I was hopping you guys could recommended/ help me decide on a header for my first gen XB? I heard that 4-2-1 is better low/ midrange? and 4-1 is better high range? Also any word on ceramic headers melting the shift linkage? I would also like to get something that I can smog in california? If i get something with tabs to mount the heat shield, the emissions wont be noticeably different right? they just do a visual inspection? Any thoughts and input on all this, as well as brand/ part number recommendations (and explanations) would be greatly appreciated.
I THINK what I'm looking for is a 4-2-1 header with tabs for keeping the heat shield?
Also while i'm thinking of it, I've heard a lot of talk about installing pulleys for performance? what are the risks/ benefits/ recommended brands? I heard talk of balance issues or engine damage?
