Default SE-R Header Y-Pipe?

Instead of paying $270 for a racingline y-pipe, why can't we buy the ebay Altima SE-R header kit for $135 shipped and just use that y-pipe. Then you still have the header pieces if you ever wanted to do a full swap.

Default Re: SE-R Header Y-Pipe?

Many folks have gone that route. The difference is a bit more time for the install in the headers. Its not like a 100% direct plug-n-play.

I posted a thread on it where Grimmax installed his and thats what he had to do.

This is the clearance and why people shave their Starter just a bit.

Here's some good info on it:

Yes... more work involved.

If you guys want to do any header mods, etc... please please please do it the right way and get what's made for your car. Going through cheap routes will cost you more in the long run. That also goes for any mod you do, period.

Yeah 100% agreed. Most shops have never done these type of non-direct modifications and end up taking more time than usual and also missing some things.

That's what happened to Grimmax where they didn't weld his EGR correctly and he ended up having to go back and forth.

Now if the person installing knows what they are doing... then everything should work out ok. But other then that I would recommend going a route that is a direct swap. Yes, it costs more but at least you know it will 100% work directly.

Default Re: SE-R Header Y-Pipe?

I was just wondering about the y-pipe section. But after staring at the two y-pipes side by side, I think the SE-R y-pipe will only work with the headers it comes with and probably won't bolt up to the stock headers.

In that case...No its not a direct bolt-on with stock headers. You will need to install the SE-R headers as well.

I assumed you were going to install the whole set.

Screw it, I'm going to get the HFPC w/y-pipe from racingline if they ever have them in stock again. I'm getting a very large overtime check in a couple weeks. That way I'll bypass all the headaches and surprises.

Damm man I got all excited about this.. But like you guys said if it is gonna cost more problems and headaches in the future then it's not worth it. Guess I'll just be going the same route with the hfc and y pipe combo. With install that's about a G in total correct?
