Question PPE Long Tube Headers?

I am just wondering does anyone have any input on PPE as a company? Have they produced quality parts in the past maybe someone might have some first hand experience from working with them? I am asking this because as you can see from the title their headers have been calling my attention and I have seen some nice photos of the product other than the prototype mess they had up on their facebook a while back. Any info you can help me out with I will greatly appreciate and btw idk if this is of any use but I am looking to run FI's catback with whichever LTH's I get whether it be FI or PPE.

PPE makes great stuff. They have a lot of experience designing custom headers for sports/sporty cars (e.g., last gen Celica GT-S, MR2, Lotus Elise, etc.).

Those of you on here who are getting to know me, should be getting the sense that I am no stranger to R&D projects where the goal is bang for the buck.

I was involved in the R&D, production, and sales of the 7th gen Celica GT-S header, which was the only header for that car to ever demonstrate solid gains, and we kept the quality high and the costs low too.

In short: For years, everyone whined that there was no decent header for the GT-S, so I contacted PPE and got a project in motion, which turned out to be a great success (insert Borat picture here ).

I will be testing out the fit and gains for their header on the 7-speed in due course with independent dynos -- stay tuned.

If it doesn't make power I won't have anything nice to say about it. That said, given PPE's history, I'm confident it will perform as advertised.

Will post lots of dynos (already have baseline runs posted in the South East Region thread -- see here Proven Power Dyno Database Thread ) and details once this gets rolling. Probably within next month or two.

Thanks -- I won't forget. I hope to get moving on this project within the next month or so, so look for a new thread sometime in September.

I won't promote anything that doesn't make power -- I couldn't care less about bling or labels -- I want products that deliver bang for the buck and will hold together over time. In the past PPE has done an excellent job based on these criteria.

Dynos, datalogs, and road time are what I look to in making these determinations... rest assured that if I get a set of headers, they will be tested and evaluated in detail.
