i have the hotshot headers and am very happy the power increase is very noticable but you have to extend the second o2 sensor and mount it behind the cat otherwise the check engine light will come on, the stillen is also a good company and im sure that they perform equally as well, but i have no personal experience with them.

You'll have to modify any header that you buy right now. No one has a B15 specific header yet. Hotshot is working on one, but I think it will be a little while before we see it because of the O2 sensor problem. Since the o2 sensor has to be mounted on the mid-pipe, it will be difficult for hotshot to sell the header as a "bolt-on" part.

both headers r good, but either one of them have it specifically for our cars.

stillen has a 4-1 header and hotshot has 4-2-1 headers.

if ur gonna be dragging, i would suggest 4-1 which is good for top end, but u'll loose alot on the low and mid end.
with 4-2-1, u'll gain more mid end for street drivability and top end, but not as much as 4-1.

Hotshot is the header for the street and NA applications. The Stillen and AEBS are more suited towards NOS applications and road racing.

STILLENs new headers are an improvement over the previous 4-2-1 setup. You still get more top end power without the lose of any low or mid. That is why STILLEN doesn't offer the 4-2-1 anymore. I have the 4-1 Header and haven't had any low or mid range power lose.

4-1 without low and mid end loss? that is impossible... did u dyno it before and after? or do they have a dyno sheet.

there will be too lil back pressure with a 4-1 during low and mid end to create the hp and torque.

(sorry if i sound redundant)so you have to relocate the second 02 sensor after the cat..... does that mean that you mount it right on the mid-pipe?????... i need to know so I can get the stromung before my header comes

i see..... makes sense... i guess hotshot will just be sending the header with the sensor to let me do the mod myself.... hey

Jo$h..... did you ever end up getting the stromung mid-pipe.... are you running your headers with the mid-pipe now??

oh...... and thanks for the info :D

i think im going to go with the stromung mid-pipe w/ the stock muffler to keep it sleeperish....... but i want the mid-pipe to maximize air flow...... cant have it stop after the header... might as well keep it going :D
