Yesterday at pick n pull I discovered an Ebay 5SFE chrome header in a 5th gen celica. So for $30 I took it home to test it out.

Here is the results:

Since I have a CA spec car, I mounted both o2 sensors. No CEL.

Unfortunately I snapped the lower right exhaust bolt :( so I'm using a bandaid approach and used a thick metal S bracket and torqued it down with the bolt that holds the coolant pipe below the exhaust manifold. Seems to hold just fine and no exhaust leaks that I can tell. I'll have to most likely drill out the bolt and retap it.

Haha probably. Don't you have an aftermarket exhaust?

Mine is still stock except the header and the chrome tip I welded onto the existing muffler. I'm going to do full stainless steel 2.25" back someday. I'm putting my car out of DD status as soon as I pick up my A4. I'll be able to pull the engine out then. My plan is to use a late 90's 5S Celica long block with the 3S intake manifold to keep it simple.

Sorta. I'm using the stock gen4 3sgte exhaust manifold and downpipe/cat, then a full 3" exhaust from there all the way back to a Magnaflow street series muffler.

Seems like a pretty neat find.

I see all of these claims of how loud their cars are, but no sound clips. I DEMAND SOUND CLIPS!

I know it gets stupid loud with headers on there. I have a magnaflow all the way back and it makes its 3x louder.

Was doing a sound check to see how well my cell phone records sound. Unfortunately I never made a full one, so this is all I got. Haha
