Just go with a header from Raven Re-Drives and 2" or 1-7/8th inch exhaust with high flow cat or off road if you prefer. Raven's site is at http://www.raven-rotor.com/

They have headers for the 1-liter and cams. I don't know about prices though. I see they have a 115hp 1.3 liter SOHC 16 valve engine also.

hey suprfly,

do you work for raven? my dad is an ultralight enthusiast so i'm familiar with the line and this pipe.

raven's engines seem to be designed for max hp at 4200 rpm and also have a much different application (i.e. constant rpm operation, max torque and hp without the constantly changing throttle position required of an automobile engine.) my experience with the pipe has been that it yields poor torque (no back pressure) at low revs and pretty crappy throttle response after adding a suitable length of pipe to the header and a muffler (which actually improves the low end torque.)

it is, however, a well made header and pretty nice looking. i'd like to see the hp and torque curves for the header from a dyno in an automotive application. driving a big fan blade is a much different load environment.

respectfully, richard
