    Dinan Header Question

    I am highly considering purchasing a Z8 in the next few months. The first 10 or so Dinan modified cars seem to have mixed reviews as well as discussions of possible damage to the frame from the installation of the headers http://www.bmwz8.us/forum/upgrades/d...issues-80.html. One such car is for sale on Hemmings.com. The advertisement for this car discussed Dinan "second generation" headers https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds...8/2097958.html. Was this Dinan's attempt at an appropriate solution to the first generation? Any words of wisdom would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Joe

    I am not sure if I am answering the question but the second generation headers were prototyped on my car and no body/frame modification was done to the car to fit these headers.

    I love them. You only hear them under hard acceleration (I still haven't installed my free flowing Meisterschaft mufflers).

    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car

    That will be a very well set up car, and should provide massive amounts of motoring fun, especially on the quiet open back roads of SoCal.
