It is hard to tell what did what but the engine is transformed to me as the power is much more linear and the below 3k feels much more lively. I had the factory stage 1 which was good but much better now.

It is a shame we don’t have a tuner like the two options in the UK in the US

This would include a new, unlocked ECU as the standard one can only be reflashed with a MMC file.

So the $2k probably breaks down to approx $800 exhaust, $800 ECU and $400 air filter and fixings


Not exactly. The quote includes sending my own ECU back to MMC for a reflash. What makes more sense to me is $1200 for Stage 1 (pipes and filter alone) plus the components of Stage 2 with the unlocked ECU all in one go. Doesn't make sense to pay for the ECU twice. Am I missing something?

Here is a newbie question, how do you clean the wrapped headers?

Replace the wrap? Re-spray with high-temp silicone? Start with a dark color? Not much experience with mine yet but I doubt it will take a scrubbing. Not that hard to replace.

I understand one reason for the wrap is to protect the turn signal lamp from excessive heat, but is the only other reason to have it is for appearance?

And that's about it! I've tried wrapping the headers with different materials and abandoned all of them. It keeps the heat in the pipes when cooling them would be much better. Wraps were originally used inside engine compartments to keep that space cooler. They were not designed for external use. Mine all degraded over time, became brittle and came off in pieces. Getting wet occasionally probably did not help, either.


What's your mileage? Who cares. Is it practical? See #1. What happens when it rains? You get wet.

I've recently had my headpipes silver ceramic coated. Not real wild about their somewhat "blingy" appearance, but will see how they age once the weather breaks and we can get some heat and miles on them.
