the link for the part: Stainless Racing Header Manifold Downpipe Exhaust 05 10 Chevy Cobalt SS ion 2 0L | eBay

it's surprisingly good quality with the welds and came with everything needed to be installed to stock catback or after market 2.5" installation was very easy, the threads on bungs on the header and dp threaded to the stock sensors no problem, only issue i had was since its a long tube header the new placement for the first o2 sensor was now to far back to be reconnected so my builder had to cut and solder high quality wires to extend it about 2" other then that it fits PERFECTLY obviously stock heat shield will not bolt up to this, the v band didn't not come with a gasket that kind of bummed me out but for the price cant complain other then that the dp and header gaskets were higher quality then expected. obviously since its a catless dp my car got louder, if you like loud then its perfect if you dont then id suggest adding a resonator to your catback, power wise i cant give you exact number without a dyno, but it definitely pulls better up top in 3rd and 4th gear and definitely gained low end torque due to the 4-1 design noticeable when in 5th gear at 65mph it picks up alot better while accelerating still in 5th, boost was not effected for me it stayed at 12psi, my supporting mods are custom cai and custom 2.5" catback with twin loop muffler. so far i say its worth the money shipping was fast and packaging was nice. but the true test of value will be the test of time i will re-review this header after a few months. hope this helps. fell free to ask any questions if you fell i left anything out.

No gasket needed, a little anti-seize can be good on the v band and bolt threads if you ever want to remove it though. That is a hell of a deal for any header, let us know how it holds up

I've had the catless ZZP longtube on my car about 9 months and the sound will mellow a little once some carbon builds up in it.

So it didn't line up with the 02 sensor?
How much was it off by? I'm considering buying this right now but don't want to have to mess with that lol.
