HO headers on renix?


Recommended Posts

heard somewhere u can put HO (91-93) headers on a renix. just wanted to make sure before i make an expensive oopsy.

 

It will bolt up but the ports won't match.

 

Run the HO head too ;)

 

Not necessarily true. It may depend upon the manufacturer's design, but Borla's HO and Renix headers appear to be the same besides the EGR.

 

Renix on bottom, HO on top.

I may be wrong. :doh:

 

It is the intake that doesn't match.

 

Sorry.

 

I used to think the same thing. I had always read that the ports were in different locations, but never paid attention to if it was the intake or exhaust ports. I just always assumed both were different and never paid much attention to it until I had the HO and Renix Borla headers side by side and noticed they looked exactly the same.

 

I will also say that I don't know if this is true for all brands, only Borla that I know of. I don't remember the specifics, but I think it was Jeepcomj that had clearance issues between one of his header tubes and the intake manifold he was using.

Yes, the Borla header has known clearance issues when using the 1999+ intake manifold, but correctable by grinding some off the manifold.
