It's the AV6 version of a header. Since the exhaust manifold on our engine is cast into the head, we don't have headers. The exhaust goes through the casting and immediately into the first set of cat converters. From here a new pipe starts and merges with the other bank of cylinders. This pipe is commonly known as the "j-pipe". It is inefficiently designed and restricts airflow. No large scale manufacturer will produce a improved version for us AV6'ers, so a few brave souls went out and got one made on their own. I currently am looking to get a stock one to get a template made to have a local high performance muffler shop bang out a few for everyone.

yes you can. you can just get a custom j pipe built with those exhausts hooked up to it. if that's the case, you can probably get one built for around 300 ish from MAZZ

Hey as2222, I like your single exhaust setup! looks clean. I am just wonder how did you go about to do the J-pipe? When you merged the pipes from the header, did they have to be equal length when the pipes come together? Somebody said this is important. What did the folks from MAZZ think about this?

Uh, search like, 4 posts above this one.
No one has proven that the equal length is necessary when asked before, but I feel it could be for sound/resonance reasons. Then again, after viewing what Honda did with their wonderful "pinch" technique at making the J-pipe in the first place, I wonder how important it really is.
