I state this as someone who was years past owning an Accord when the Bisi products came out, but as a layman what I never understood is why these "custom made, $1,000 headers" were still not a bolt on design. The Accord dimensions were well known at that point with many companies making products. They should have been bolt-on at that price-point.

But what do I know, I'm just a lowly peon.

CyborgGT is cool... so far.
Richard did the NC Miata review and loved it. Plus, he's secretly American and would totally go for the CTS-V muscle car. I think James would criticize the Caddy for its cheap take on luxury, at least from that period, as well as its Nurburgring-tuned suspension.

And a stock exhaust would bottleneck a real performance header, making it a complete waste, so why would you expect one of any brand to bolt right up? They're race headers, and race exhaust systems are typically custom.

I dug up the original group buy thread.
The header Bisi sold was marketed as a “street version”, compatible with PS and AC.
I agree that there’s no good reason that “street version” shouldn’t have been made to bolt up to an exhaust. Especially if it was a custom piece (which was absolute hooey.)
The slip joint was cheap, and allowed for a greater lack of precision. If it didn’t line up exactly, it flexed a bit.

And I’ve also criticized my cadillac’s interior.
