Any One Tried To Remove The Butterfly And Shaft That Is In The Stock Header? And If So Any Numbers On The Hp Scale?

The side where the cables connect to the valve, the shaft is only kept in place by to spot welds on the headers. Problem is, to reweld the Ti if you do loosen it there to remove the shaft. You cannot remove the butterfly as a whole, as the headers get smaller toward the back! Only option is to drill/ grind it out with something! But then you'll have a 3mm hole on the inside of your headers that need to be blocked up!

I just planned on tapping the hole and sticking a plug in it.

With it dissabled, the valve is open. I wouldn't think it would be worth it to go to all that trouble to possible ruin you exhuast, for IMO nothin. If you want more HP, go with an aftermarket.

Or bust out you cat. and take the cables off the deally under the rear seat.

JMHO. :mrgreen:
