Description Videos Reviews The Revolution MINI Works Shorty Street Header is the highest flowing header on the market. This header is the best matched to a car with a big valve head that is trying to make the most horsepower that it can. Each tube is at equal length for maximum flow and is 304 Stainless steel that is fully TIG welded. It has the largest tubes possible to match the large ports of high flow heads. The RMW header really comes alive around 3500 in the rpm range, and pulls strong to red line. However you will loose a bit of low end torque. But that is normal for a header. remember they were designed by NASCAR to go fast on they top end! Gains range from 8-11 HP depending on modifications done to your vehicle. Now comes with a better cat. See the video below. Note: Any header is going to make your car twice a loud as it is right now. Be aware. Also it's going to be a tighter fit due to the large size; but no modifications need to be done to the car other than maybe bending a heat shield or two to clear the tubes better. Comes with new gaskets. It comes with the best GESI high flow cat on the market (49 states/Canada legal). Some older designs from time to time will get a SES light because of the cat code (P0420) depending on the tune and mods to the car. BUT they have updated to a new cat that is 49 states/Canada legal and is going to improve any chance of getting a SES light again. Also all cars will lose some low end torque due to the larger tubes and free flowing nature of a header. Note: Special order, but can normally get them quickly. If RMW is out it may have a 1-2 week lead time. Please plan ahead.

I purchased it due to the factory header in my R53 cracking. After installing the RMW, my car feels like a whole new car. After about 3-4k RPM's you can really feel the extra power kick in, and it sounds great. Even when the car is just running at idle, the sound is awesome! 5 Best r53 Headers on the Market Posted by Benjamin on 18th Jan 2021 If you want to build the fastest car on the stock supercharger, this is the header to buy. They may be more expensive than the competition, but the fitment is perfect, you can feel the extra power at 4000 rpms, and the sound is mature. You can still drive through a neighborhood without waking anyone up, but after 4000, it's louder than almost any other car out there. The only complaint I have is that I wish it came with new hardware for the price. Some nice clean new bolts would be a nice ad on. Also, the first o2 sensor did feel a little stretched, but it still fit in with no issues. 5 RMW Shorty Header Posted by Darrell A. / Simi Valley, Ca on 16th Apr 2020 First, hats of to Detroit tuning I ordered these headers on a Wed @ 130pm and received them the next day @1130am simply amazing! that is the fastest I've ever received car parts. Now to the headers if you know what's going on in the mini world you know about the quality of these headers! I purchased this headers because I plan on looking in to a big valve head in the future and want to avoid having to open up the ports on any other headers purchased. The black heat coating is a great added bonus but still suggest wrapping these headers because you will not be able to put the factory one back on and gets pretty hot for the coolant and power steering tanks. As for the tone its meaner then ever, I have it mated to a milltek exhaust and it bolted up with no issue. There isn't to much of a tone difference until after 3500rpm and or at WOT. Truly is music to the ears! 5 RMW Shorty Street Header Posted by Dave Roycraft on 6th May 2019 Perfect fit. Noise level was acceptable. Feel power difference at 4,000 rpm and beyond. Get O2 sensor code at track only. clears itself on the drive home. Very pleased. DT Edit: if it is brand new you should not be getting any O2 Codes, and with the new Cat they used we have not seen any fail in the last few years. Give us a call and we can help! 5 RMW Shorty Street Header Posted by Dave Roycraft on 3rd May 2019 Perfect fit. No codes after install. Feel power after 4000 rpm. Did not make much louder, but already had a Borla street kit installed.
