Search "j-pipe".

Other than that, as I have said before, Comptech is developing a J-pipe for the Acura TL - it should fit ours. But to the best of my knowledge, nobody is developing one specifically for our car.

I agree with the welded thing, but check out these bad boys... I wish they would work. Somebody sure thinks that they would... Prob. not a honda owner:

Those would fit 6th gen AV6's.

But on a side note, it is my belief that with simple modification to the lower half of those headers (ie, cut the flange and weld on one that would mate with the cat coming of the block), they would fit. It would be reletively cheap, but I can't afford to try it and have it not work.

Comptech and OBX share the exact same design for these headers as well.

Actually, the exhaust manifold (header) is cast as part of the cylinder head itself...... there is no welding involved.

That is true. Yet people keep asking for 7th gen. V6 headers. There are no headers and there will never be any. They are not possible. Doesn't anybody ever crawl under their car to check things out, or at least to change the oil? You'd notice how the engine is made if you did!

What you see is the hard work of about 20 engineers and technicians, who have been working on their own time for more hours than I can count to help make this dream a reality. This project would not have been possible without the help of our partners on this project:
H&R - custom dampers & springs
Toyo Tires - Toyo RA-1 race tires
NRC Aerospace - wind tunnel testing (http://iar-ira.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/aero_3.html)
Prototype Racing - custom header & a-pipe (deletes all 3 cats)
Roush Logistical Services - event transportation & support
Acura A-Spec - ground effects
Keihin - technical support
Comptech - lightweight flywheel (from CL-S), street cat back exhaust
Brembo - technical support
SPC - adjustable camber ball joints & links
Progress Technology - custom adjustable rear sway bar
Goodridge - SS brake lines
