curious to know if any one has pictures of the headers from a 30v V6... maybe someone has replaced their headers and took pics of the old one? any help is appreciated.

Those look awsome. To bad they are so much $ or would get them. Do they make a pipe that will just replace our cat?

I know the 12V guys saw gains just by boring out the TB and smoothing out the intake tract and MAF, and I think it's very similar, if not identical, to 30V nonDBW cars. If they saw decent gains by increasing airflow, I would think the stock exhaust manifolds aren't a huge restriction.

If you can't get more air into the motor, what's the point of freeing up the airflow out of the motor?

i bet these would be fully realized with a supercharger.

12V or 30V... how do you know without tearing into the motor? vin number maybe? I have asked this before with no positive answers...

from my understanding the factory exhaust manifolds are prety well designed... the biggest benifit would probobaly be weight savings, i would think?

You have a 12V, the 30V I think didn't start until 98.5...

shoooooot! i thought so too cuz i was looking around and i looked at my valve covers and they are relatively skinny... figuring there is only one cam in there=12v :[ that is sad... i wish i would have know that before i bought the damm thing, thats alright though... i'll spend less money on the engine :)

If your motor looks like something out of Transformers, then yes, you do have a 12V...
