To my knowledge the header should fit and clear the oil filter fine, BUT it may come pretty close to your hood. what looks like a flexpipe that comes with it won't just bolt in, but you can probly cannibalize it and incorporate it in.

thanks anyone have any experience with these how close to the hood close enough i should worry about burning my paint or having to heat wrap it would this header stand up to being heatwrapped, what about ceramic coating anyone know what that costs?

just do a search for Camry header. The OEM one is already a tubular manifold.

Yeah i know it is, i was thinking about getting it but i dont want a cat there, i wanna do a catback with an high flow aftermarket cat, so i figured this would be better than gutting the cat out of the stock header or having to pay to get my exhaust shop to hack the cat off and finish the tubular header from there.

financially I think you would be better off using the OEM manifold and replacing the cat with a high flow one. Keep in mind a cat really doesn't hold you back much unless you're FI. Also the OEM manifold is better construction it's held to manufacturer standards to last 100k+ miles. Most aftermarket products have a built in life span I've noticed. thats why people tell you to pay good money for good parts.

so should i take the stock cat out of the header or is it possible and just put a cat in farther down the exhaust or would that mess up the exhuast flow having a big empty chamber in the exhuast i can see that messing up teh flow. Let me know guys anyone else have any input?
