track bodywork and exhausts

So I'm doing my homework on exhaust fitment, before my wood craft armour bodies track bodywork arrives, and it seems like it'll be a tight fit. I've already bought some heat shield to throw on the fairings.

I'm running a stock exhaust system, with only a m4 gp style slip on muffler. Is this cheapest, with doing it right thing to do? cut the back of the headers off, and weld a connector pipe to the muffler and get a power commander since theres no back pressure w/o a cat?

I've heard several people talk about grabbing a set of 03-05 headers, any input on what thats all about?

thanks.

05 headers has no cat. So you'll get a little gain on HP, kind of like a cheaper full system.
















btw got 1 for sale too

i think you're over thinking it. i have an 09 r6 with armour bodies race fairings and a stock exhaust and there were no fitment issues at all. none...

nope. and, my advice is this; don't bother. the problem is if you paint it with exactly the stock paint, you will likely pay double what the fairings cost you. my paint guy looked around and got a paint that was "close enough" and saved me a shit-ton of $$$. even in direct sunlight, the best i can do is tell that there's no metal flake in the race fairings paint.

if you do the same, you'll be happy you did. i'm a TOTAL perfectionist about goofy things (like paint) and i was worried that it wouldn't look right. i was very happy...

Re: track bodywork and exhausts

o5 headers gave me fitment issues in the front so I just had to cut them down a bit. This is with optimals.

no worries. i'll check with my paint guy and see what he used. it may be a day or two before i get back to you on that, tho.

as far as the windscreen; there is a tab at the bottom of the stock windscreen that isn't notched out on the race plastics. so, you either need to notch the race fairings or grind off the tabs on the stock screen to make it fit right. the aftermarket screen i got from puig does not have the tabs, so it was a direct fit. also fits on the stock fairings without any problems...
