    I would encourage you to go test drive a Lexus LC500. I looked for a "supercar" for almost three years. There was no way any of them excited me and when the cost of ownership and reliability was factored in, not one of them made the grade. All the Aston Martins failed miserably. Very few owners drive them a lot. They simply wait nervously for something to break and then check their bank account to make sure they have enough money to fix the problem. All the Italian cars are the worst. The German cars are ridiculously expensive and British cars, although somewhat appealing, are Old World Technology gone backwards. It was an easy choice that if I wanted a really beautiful British sports car, a 1966 E-Type roadster would be great except for the fact that I already owned one and know what a headache they are. But, at least they have the looks. Then one evening parked in front of a restaurant a car popped into my field of vision and the sight of it brought me to my knees. It was a 2018 InfraRed with Toasted Caramel Interior Lexus LC500. Tavarish, quit screwing around with all that used junk and at least go drive the LC. It does 0-60 in 4.4. It sounds better than any Aston Martin ever produced. It handles fantastic. The fit, finish and styling will knock your socks off. Once you drive one, you'll be hooked. And....the best part is the reliability. No more gouging on parts and or labor because these cars are built so well. Go drive one. You'll see.

            The increase in HP would be so low it wouldn't be noticeable. However, the note change is so drastic of course it going to seem faster. I've built literally hundreds of custom exhaust systems and installed just as many aftermarket units. Every customer has the exact same reaction. That system may of increased RWHP maybe 15~20HP. Maybe. Every aftermarket system claims their system is better than brand X by 20 points. If you are shopping for an aftermarket system don't bother with HP numbers. Look at the quality of the unit. Pipe diameter, mandrel bends, stainless steel, plated or stainless hardware, quality of welds etc. That's what you want to look for. I've been building systems for 30years. There's not much I haven't seen or built myself.

                              Gr8 bolt is totally unnecessary. Literally any mild steel bolt is more than strong enough. As for coating, go with galvanized as it's a far superior coasting, unless the bolt is touching stainless steel, which will cause galvanic corrosion. Source, I test fasteners for a living.

                                            Quick, balanced feedback buddy: do your homework before shooting these videos. You use a lot of incorrect words or terminology that takes your credibility away and make you sound less intelligent than I believe you to be. Things like "let me show you the procedure" - you didn't show a procedure, you described a thing, so don't use that word incorrectly. "Not the highest of the end but who's counting" - there's no counting the high end, something just is or isn't - so don't over complicate your sentences just to make them longer. The "catalyzed O2 - not sure what it's actually called" - find out what it's ACTUALLY called, dude!

                                            Listen, you're a likable guy which is the reason people keep watching your videos. If you want to be successful and make a name for yourself with the likes of DeMuro or Hoovies - invest in a little preparation, avoid making silly mistakes that take your credibility away and offer your audience intelligent insight that they can use - or you'll never make it to the level that you aspire to.

Headers provide an individual channel for each cylinder, and the length of each channel is precisely tuned so that, at a specific RPM, the velocity of the gas from cylinder A will create a following lower pressure area for cylinder B to exhaust into, thus promoting better chamber evacuation on cylinder B and permitting more fuel and fresh air to enter the chamber. This is very closely tied to engine RPM, so an engine builder should really dig into the specifics of each header design to determine what range they are most effective in. I seem to recall that a good header design would increase exhaust gas scavenging by about 10%, so the effects are not huge; on the other hand, they're cheap.

Then it clears up. That is the first sign of valve guide seals are getting hard and brittle,( going bad ) looks like this could be your next video. Keep them coming man good stuff

                                                                                          I believe an exhuast manifold collects the gases into one tube, each port just branching into the tube at the nearest point, whereas exhaust headers are made with one tube for each port that are all the same length and funnel together all at a point. The idea being that headers have better performance due equal length which increases savaging and doesnt suffocate the last port.
