    Cool Performance bolt on headers group buy

    Members don't see this ad
    hey guys
    i bought a 2012 5.0 R-spec sedan 3 weeks ago and after driving it silently for weeks, went to my header shop to see what they could do about the silence.

    this is a high end all american company, which is used by multiple OEM performance companies for their race exhausts.
    i wont say the name of the company yet, as per request of the owner. but the VIPER ACR program uses their headers from the factory.

    they are located on long island and all work and development will be in house and the work ive seen and had done here has been outstanding.

    the owner saw my new car and was very excited, he has been interested in building a high performance header for the TAU for a while now, and this is his chance.

    we need to get interest and pre-orders and i'll give up my car to him for a month to develop and manufacture the headers.

    again this is a feeler post please let me know how many of you guys want bolt on performance headers and possibly a full engine back exhaust made for the car.

    I think this is a great idea. Note the position of the cats in the drawing is about the same place as the oem secondary cats. My guess is that the mfg would spend about $2500-3000 in labor materials for the "master set". I get interested at a retail price of $1200 or less. My sense is that the mfg will have to make and sell at least 25 sets to be worth his while. Genesis market is very small - low production numbers and few of those owners monitor this forum.

    I have a 4.6 so I'm not sure if the manifolds are the same or not, but I'd be very interested in a set.

    My sentiments exactly and the reason that there is very little for mods, aftermarket parts, accessories or technical support.

    thats true, but the SS has similar numbers built and they are selling a full exhaust for it.
    it might take a little while but if we can get a bunch of people to go in on the buy we can get these made.
    @rey those numbers you said sounded about right from the group buys ive done with my previous cars.

    4.6 and 5.0 share the same exhaust manifolds up to 2013/2014 when Hyundai began re-designing them, going from a log manifold to 4-in-to-1 to a 4-in-to-2-in-to-1 as it presently is. Unconfirmed fitment, but mounting points and exit points/angles are identical so the chances of a 2016 5.0 exhaust manifold fitting a 2009 4.6 are good.

    To the OP, I would be very interested. I had considered going to Kooks Headers at some point, they are a few hours away, for a custom set, but if we have someone willing to manufacture, that is even better.

    Also if the cats get relocated, as I imagine they will, I have part numbers of oxygen sensors with 14" longer wiring than OE for a plug-n-play setup. The Tau uses the same oxygen sensor in all four spots.

    4-2-1 exhaust manifolds and/or headers (aks "Tri-Y") produce more mid-range power than the typical long-tube headers. Long tube headers have an advantage at top of rpm scale.

    If this would fit the Equus as well, I'd Certainly be Interested. The 5.0 TAU Engine is a Great Motor, however as was noted above, it is Almost Impossible to get Any Performance mods
    for this car, it's a Real Shame, as my 4300Lb Equus went [email protected]....

    84FordMan, that's great news to hear! More of a market for a single product, hopefully keeping costs lower than if two different headers had to be produced. Hope to hear good news in the near future on these.
