Ok I just installed my full Arata exhaust and now I'm getting a little worried. After doing a closer inspection I noticed that the radiator is a little close to the headers. I didn't see how close the stock headers were compared with the new ones but this seems a little close for comfort. Here are some pics to show you how close they actually are from each other. Arata owners please let me know how this compares to yours.

Also I noticed that the headers after 2-3 minutes start glowing red. Is this also normal for the headers to do? Again I didn't notice it before with the stock headers but then again I wasn't really looking before.


Here are the pics of the headers/radiator

I would go with what BD says. Do you have a PCIII? I can't remember if you did or not. A remap might help also. Just double check the radiator mount, theres a little bushing on the tab side that might be out of place causing an improper gap. I can't wait to hear that bitch. How about I come to your place on Sunday to get the stands instead so I can check it out...
And what about the Akra?$$

Congrats on the Arata, I'm sure you will love it cause I've heard nothing but good about it...
