Welcome to the forum Ruben! Car is looking good, and looks like you have a good base for modding. Take a look around and feel free to ask any questions.

I've been following 2j for a while now, really impressed with what they do for our platform, I got in contact with them after they came out with the Medusa for the b15 and they sent me this:
Hey Matt,
we are working on a B16 version of the medusa. We are about 3 months away from releasing the preorders and the prototype. Stay tuned!

before proto says it will never happen

joe actually bought a b16
i have seen it in the shop

it's been lowered and 2 jr wheels fitted to it

these wheels will only be available to spec and ser b16s
and 5 bolt converted b15s, and 16s

lurking about
i saw them about to cut up the original medusa
but they stashed it between the cabinets when i came in
nice color

my race header took two years from this point so don't hold your breath

my turbo kit and all it's componebts were put together over several years
before the custom turbo service began

my panhard bar went thru a season of racing and breaking before it was released

the b16 plenum also two years in developement before available to the public for b15s

they are slow
but consistant

Barry, I think you need to ease off the 2jr koolaid.

Lets just remember 2JR is all about broken promises. Barry, you're the exception as you practically fund his shop/life.

He makes things happen for you.

viewtopic.php?f=136&t=7451

Joe is clueless when it comes to the b16 platform.

Sheesh that's disappointing, idk what to do abt a header then.. I don't wanna put that cheap Chinese shit on my car and have all those complications that everyone else has

ehh you will more likely have problems with a weapon-r header than you will with a cheap chinese header.

I think ElCapo might have a Nismo header for sale that was modified to fit on a B16. Look around

i need to buy a b16
lol

lets try to put this in perspective please

i admit i baited proto
a little action on this site doesn't hurt

but my real intent was simply to warn you
i don't think [based only on my previous experience] that header will be available by christmas

i suggest you do what i did

i just bought a well made, used , chinese copy of the DC header
Image

had it theremal painted
Image

used it for 8 months till a real header was available
Image


BTW
though i was in on the developement of the race header
and the prototype was assembled on my car

i was actually one of the last people to get one when they actually came out

A M2 or megan header is fine. You wont have to worry about anything if you install it properly with the ecl eliminators etc.

The WR header is the only issue. The bong placement is incorrect and confuses the ecu into limp mode.

I have a WR header on my 2.0 with zero issues for 4 years now. Their header is quality. Unfortunately in production for the spec header. Someone messed up.

just some supporting info from
2k2SpecV
I cannot confirm this,
But I did read on FB that Joe had something ready or in the works, regarding a header for the B16. Also Joe is soon going to focus his attention on producing parts for the B16s, I think maybe after the B15 Budget turbo kit.

i was also told that the b16 is next
as proto has confirmed
i have a special relationship with joe

this IS the inside info

Man I'm having such a hard time finding a header for my 2012, I too contact 2J and they said "early 2016" they'll have it ready. So who knows what that literally translates to...

obx can be good quality steel if not the best design

i used the headers [yes, there are two] on the vq
and used the 60mm catback for many years [ss] no rust or broken welds

there is a big
BUT
no or little performance gain
8 hp for both on mine [vq]

and to test 2js outrageous claims
on back to back weekends , over many runs

i ran the 60mm catback vs their 2.5" side race exhaust
on the na qr with a dc [like] header

if you wish to see the results i'll post the time slips and photos

there was a 4mph diff on average
in the 1/8 mile alone

so they look good for years
have fair sound
and good construction [in my experience]

not much thought went into performance
imo

thats just my individual experience, with one set of headers and a single 60mm SS catback utilized on two engines
limited at best

the header by itself should be good construction
could you post photos, inside too
thanks

sometimes the fitment may need a little help

i agree
a good looking inexpensive
and mine were reliable
