Headers and Cat

Yes the put that in there to protect their warrenty. And over time it will contribute to the early demise of your headers. How much time does it take. I don't know. And it would be unpredictable to try and figure out. And the point I was making before was what would cost more changing the headers every 5 or 6 years or changing the cats way more often. Maybe once a year? At least move the cats as close to the collectors as possible and hope for the best. And remember to fab some heat shields under them to help prevent fires if you drive on dry grass of in a field for instance. The shields top and bottom would also help keep heat in the cats. And I would make them so they kind of covered the collectors too. Thanks Bill
