Question about header fitment...


Recommended Posts

My mechanic is installing Dansk headers on my '01S. He's concerned the heat from the header will melt the plastic undertray (which covers the underside of the motor), due to the minimal clearance (about an inch). For those of you already running headers, have you dispensed with the undertray, or found that the heat hasn't been a concern?

Thanks,

Well, my headers have only been on the car for a few days, but one of the header pipes on each side is right against the bottom of the pan support brackets. No melting yet. What's going to happen down the road, first long ride, who knows. I'll keep an eye on it. If I see any hint of melting, I'll cut a clearance section out of the rear corners of the pan, rivet a fabricated stainless steel mount extension/support to it, and re tighten the mounting bolts. Problem solved. The headers are worth it.

Watch that 3/4" oil line above the driver's side header. On my '03 it wound up real close to the header and looked like it might even hit against one of the tubes. I wrapped it in a $30 heat guard material I bought from Advance Auto Parts, and zip tied it back away from the header.
