Still working on it Mike. It is usually snowing after work these days. I'll see if I can get them up over the weekend.

I installed the HED#39800 hedders from Summit racing, $119.95, two bungs for the O2 sensors $ 3.00 , and a new 2 1/2 aluminumized exhaust into a Y pipe , dynomax ultra flow muffler, and the pipe out the rear- all for under $125.00 dollars out the door! I also ditched the collectors that come with the Hedders they are reducers to a 2"pipe. You will need to angle the pipes at the collector about a 30 degree angle to clear the cross meember any good muffler shop can do this. This is probably one of the biggest money to power ratios you can do for $250.00

Thanks Todd! What are you tryng to do to me? Don't you know that I made up my mind last week? Now what, am I going to have to start all over? Do I need headers? Of course I do! Can I do it for as little as you seem to have done it for ? Of course not! Does that Matter? No.
Oh well Here we go again.
Honey, You know that money I saved by not changing my whole exhaust? Yes Dear. Can I have it back? PLEASE!

Todd, did you have to do any modifying of your headers when you installed them? Those look like a very good deal, I am just worried that they're not quite a direct fit.

Thanks!

Mike, Janspeed Headers are thicker than the Headman.

We did the Headmans on a friends 95 D90 along with Summit Cats and I wasn't impressed with the quality of the headers.

So do they make headers that will fit the defender? If so, do you know the part #?

EM473SR I think. I'll have to double check tomorrow. I just got set for my 95 DI (3.9) and the part number is EM472SR.

I'll find out tomorrow morning and let you know.

Here's a pic of my headers (DI)

Another pic

I think the flanges are 15mm thick, I'll have to double check.

So are they on the 90 and how do you like them. Would they also fit the a '97 4.0? I don't think the engine size is any different (somebody correct me if I am wrong). Did you need to change the whole exhaust or did it fit right to the existing down pipe? How about some pics with the headers installed.

Is there a US distributor for Janspeed? If so, who is it?

We had the HH installed on the D90. The Janspeed headers for the D90 is a different part #.

On the Janspeed Headers you need to weld on the cats and use your existing Y pipe. We are looking into using an 87-88 xmember so that the cats sit above the xmember and not below.

I'll get some pics of the Janspeed headers installed on a 91 RR, I don't have pics of them on a D90.

Daniel Chapman will be installing them on his 4.6 powered Disco in a few weeks, I'll let you know how his install goes.

Personally I wasn't too impressed with the HH.

BTW, we import the Janspeed Exhausts.

I am not understanding the cats, if you use the stocker y pipe why would you have to redo the cats? Is that if you use the different X member???

The Janspeed headers will not line up with the stock cats and y-pipe.

Take a look at this pic: Headers

I see, I cant figure out what modifications must be made to the stocker system, did you reuse the stocker cats?

What do you guys think about this?

I emailed Janspeed UK with a question about thier headers on a 94 d-90. Here's the response I got. Do you think the reason she said that they will not work with the cats is becuase of what JohnC said, they just dont fit??

Quote:
Enquiry: I am looking for more information about exhaust headers for the
above listed truck. Prices, availability, US distributor, etc. Thanks!


Response: Thank you for your recent enquiry. We can supply Janspeed mild steel tubular headers but these are only suitable for use on a non cat vehicle, does yours have cats fitted? Also they are designed to be fitted with the Janspeed system so modifications would be needed to fit to your existing system.

Unfortunately we do not have a US distributor but can mail order any parts over to you.

If these sound as if they may be of some use to you please let me know and I can then work out some prices for you.

Kind regards

Lisa

Right, you need to weld on the cats. It is possible and it has been done.

We get the Janspeed exhaust thru Scorpion. Scorpion is a distributor in the UK for Janspeed and since we distribute for Scorpion here in the US we can get anything they carry.

Bradlee, do you know how much the headers are from Janspeed shipped to the US? Just curious.

I haven't found out how much the headers are direct from Janspeed UK yet. I'm waiting for them to email me back with more info.

How much can you get them for, John?
