I'm thinking about getting a header and high flow cat to go with my custom cat back. However I'm not sure it will clear my skid plate.
Is anyone here running Borla style (I'm probably buying some replicas) headers with a primitive front skid plate?

I'm pretty sure it will clear in the front, but I'm worried about the rear of the plate by the collector.

Thanks!

you'll have to make some spacers for it to clear.
I was running obx headers with a subyxteme skid place and make spacers for it to clear. Or take the jacking plate off and put some washers in for make clearance

Thanks! I'm already running two polyurethane spacers to keep it from vibrating on the oil pan. Were your OBX headers EL or UEL? I'm worried about rubbing at the back of the plate near the rear collector...
In the pic where the pipes come together and mate to the track pipe.

I have prosport headers with a Subtle skid plate. I had to add spacers to keep the skid plate from rubbing.
