I too am running the AE with the NJBT Header and I agree with Woodie, However I just ordered two of those headers, one for my RS4 3 and one for the other T-maxx I am building now. That header looks very similar to the cen header, and the price can't be beat. I think the AE pipe is an excellent pipe. BTW is it ported already? My headers wont be here untill some time next week. I know it will make a big difference on my RS4 cuz the header it comes with is junk. I will be doing some comparisons next week with the Duratrax and NJBT headers and I will post my results after I am done. Sorry I couldn't be more help, YET
Heres a link to a pipe review that I found very interesting
RGFarm the header made a HUGE difference, the longer the pipe and header combo the more low end power you will get, the NJBT has such a big offset I was really amazed with the difference when I put it on. Nitroboy, your right it does touch the a arm under full compression but it barely touches, it did melt a teeny tiny little divit in the arm NOTHING at all to be concerned about, and has not caused any other problems, no broken a arms, but I just ordered two of the duratrax headers, one for my RS4 3 and one to try on the maxx I am building now, they are only $11 at tower, the NJBT is about $30. Once I have tried the duratrax I will let you all know the results, But RGFarm I love that AE pipe, try it with a different header and if you still don't like it I'll but it from ya Check out the link I put on this thread at the top it really explains tuned pipes well l think you might find really interesting
So which header are you going to get? Maxxconfusion, It is probably like the cen, I will just match port it with my dremel to the gasket size. The NJBT is already ported, but if you use anything smaller than an 18 tooth clutch bell the NJBT will hit the shock If you are going to get the NJBT I would wait for the gen 2, it should be out real soon
I wasn't aware of a new NJBTH, what could they do different with it? I have it mated with an AE tuned pipe and I love it. You can really tell a difference when you run with someone who has the stock set up.
They are redesigning it so it will not touch the A arm, and will be usable with the pro-line suspension kit, where as the first one cannot be used with the pro-line kit. I spoke to them personally and they told me a few weeks and it should be out.
