aFe Twisted Steel Racing Headers - E82 128i, E9X 325i/328i/330i
Zero-restriction headers improve power and reliability on track
aFe 128i/325i/328i/330i N52 racing headers have been dyno'd at 16hp and 18ft-lbs gains! aFe headers are near equal-length, constructed with mandrel-bent 304 stainless steel tubing, TIG welding, and CNC-machined CNC-machined thick flanges for long life, easier installation, and durability. This cat-delete race-version features standard-sized O2 ports for factory or wideband O2 sensors.
The factory catalytic converter is very restrictive which robs a lot of horsepower and torque but works great for cleaning the exhaust gases. However, a track/racing car no longer needs the catalytic converter so removing it makes sense. Removing the cat also saves weight and eliminates the possibility of the catalytic honeycomb material breaking down and causing a total blockage.
Notice of Fault Codes/Check Engine Light - Using any Racing downpipe could result in a check engine light and fault codes, even with sport cats. Although we have heard of cases where no check engine light appeared, these Racing downpipes are not designed to meet emissions testing and regulations. Race software that is specific to your mods is strongly advised to better adapt your car to a racing environment, keep the fault codes from appearing, optimize power gains, and improve general drivability. Our Epic Motorsports Race software is strongly encouraged to meet all of your tuning goals.
