SOS told me late last year that they are not prioritized making these again.
Comptech, Top Speed and DC Sports are all good options and share the same profile. NA2 is always a good choice too. Pride V1 is also excellent. Pride V2 has fitment issues. I would talk to Adnan at AS Motorsport or Christian at ATR Parts. They should be able to get you what you need.Thanks for info.
I am based in EU, what are my options?
The NA2s have a very refined sound and provide a good power to noise ratio. A good set of aftermarket long tubes will provide the most gains but nothing that will blow your pants off. Aftermarket headers will sound the loudest. I use RF Yamamoto headers myself.Whats the current best availabile option for 95 stock car, I want more sound, but no drone, thinking about NA2 stock headers or going SOS.
Comptech will fit NA2 no problem, at least to 1999.There seems to be nothing for us NA2 owners though. Unless I change my whole exhaust setup which would be prohibitively expensive...
Didnt know these were actually available, thought everything Comptech was discontinued a few years ago.The Comptech 95-99 I linked will fit your 98. Call Shad and he can get you a set- no custom work needed!
Shad bought the CT assets so Driving Ambition is the new vendor for all CT products. As you know, I am a fan of their headers due to the absolute perfect fitment.Didnt know these were actually available, thought everything Comptech was discontinued a few years ago.
Also I'm looking at a real merge collector solution - currently using the old SoS set (newer one had a merge collector) with no ceramic coating, which was a mistake (also got a pinhole leak which I'm trying to get repaired...). RFY and such have a proper merge design but none of them will make headers for NA2 not even a one-off (I asked !).
As many have said there's about......
For any big motor build there isn't really a header made out there with larger ID pipes. The largest one was made by LoveFab. I've had a WTB ad for this set for a while now.
Headers I personally would not buy:
Headers I'd buy:
GT-One (old RFY design)
Comptech/CT/SoS/Cantrell (but only if I was FI)
What is your application? What's your motor spec and what header do you want to use?@RYU
Can you please advise. You mention here that the LoveFab headers are for big motor build. So you mean that the design is not good for a regular 3.2?
Was this set designed for 3.5+ L stroker WITH things like ITB or SC to make more power?
Will the design help/hinder daily use and occasional track time?

Asking for knowledge how a custom made header that is rare made by LoveFab would affect the powerband overall.
OK so im confused at this point... Seems that for the BEST Throttle response and Torque its better to leave the Stock NA2 headers alone?Both contribute to the restriction. The manifolds are the most restrictive of the components. The NA2 exhaust is rumored to be more free-flowing than the NA1, but we only know for sure that the NA2 NSX-R exhaust is freer flowing (it's a different part number).
I've used every combo:
NA1 + OEM Muffler
NA2 + OEM Muffler
Headers + OEM Muffler
Headers + Super Ti
I found the NA2 + OEM to have the best throttle response and low-speed torque, which makes sense since there is the most backpressure with this setup. Adding headers reduced throttle response, but added power/torque above 4,000 rpm.
What you really want is a header that gives you more low end torque, good throttle response, since few of us cruise down the street at a constant 8,000 rpm.
