SSR Owners,

I want to introduce myself. I own a business in North Richland Hills Texas. My business name is Header Systems. We're a new start up (March 2005) and we're gearing up to market a line of performance horsepower enhancing products for a wide range of late model vehicles.

Currently we market Dynatech SuperMAXX systems, and Diablo Sport Predator flash programmers.

Give us a visit at http://headersystems.com and make use of the phone number on there, we're ready to make you a deal on a set for your SSR. I just got 4 new SuperMAXX systems in yesterday and I can ship starting Tuesday.

I would appreciate any feedback on the website and whatevery else you guys and gals would offer us. Our goas is to put customer service right up front and build around that. So we're prepared to offer some bargains.

Look forward to seeing your visit on the website.

Also, don't forget to register, we are giving away a FREE SuperMAXX system on August 31st, 2005.

Best Regards,
Chris Adams

PS We take all major cards, you can send me a PM if you're interested in finding out what price we'll sell the SSR system for.

Member Discounts

Scott, that's a great idea. I actually just joined the forum as a Supporting Vendor tonight and I need to put somthing together on that. But unofficially, just for now, I'll offer SSR forum members a 10% discount off Retail prices posted on the website at http://headersystems.com

This is something that I'll most likely do on a permanent basis, I just need to put something together on the website to publicize this.

Thanks for the idea Scott. FYI, the deal I've going for the SSR systems that I've got in stock, if you're in the market, I think you'll find hard to beat.

Ok, I'll bite...

What is it about long tube headers that makes them unacceptable to CARB? (California Air Resources Board)

Yes, same question as Beer100. Why won't long tube headers work in CA?

I could understand if you take off the stock cats and don't replace them, but the Supermaxx headers are available with or without the fi flow cats. I bought the ones with the hi flow cats from Header Systems, and Reese assured me that my SSR WILL pass an emissions test. (Although I know CA emissions laws are tougher than in either GA or TX).

I'm going to also speculate that given the way OBD II is legislated to work, if your car won't pass an emissions test, the check engine light is supposed to light up and the VCM is supposed to store the relevant diagnostic codes. If the light doesn' come on, you should pass an actual emissions test shouldn't you?

Unless the CA emissions testing says you are in technical violation just by replacing the stock cats, because you are replacing stock emissions equipment with a part that does not currently have CARB approval? Is that why? If so, that would require the inspector to be able to identify the fact that the cats he/she is looking at are not stock, and that seems unlikely.

I think the long tube is just flat illegal. It will not pass a visual even though it would probably pass smog. It puts the cat back out of the original position. It is a bunch of hog wash. The K&N Air inductions system is still not legal. The only diff is you can put the stock one on before testing. To hard to do with the headers.

The Racingbeat FAQ pretty much spells it out. If a company is willing to pay for testing, and that testing shows no increase in pollutants. You get an very specific exemption.

In the couple of converter exemptions I looked at, there was specific wording that prohibited the vendor from making the claim that his cats were high flow, or in any way enhanced performance over and above a stock converter.

edit: You are right though, as long as GM keeps selling vehicles with cast iron exhaust headers. There is no way an inspector will miss the difference.
