Looking for a header for the 2.2 ecotec. Anyone tried this?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/COBALT-HHR-SATU ... 3a88f2f108

And any thoughts about this fuel cell?

Thanks
Chris

And where's the best place for a decent gauge cluster? I'm not looking to spend $200 though for just a cluster.

Tried to view them but both items have been removed. :? ..but I have read a lot of posts about people being very pleased with the SS header off eBay if that is what you found? ...And I am in the market for a fuel cell also so I want to see the one your referring too! :mrgreen:

Ive seen them in local autoparts store too, but here is one from one from a trusted brand: http://www.jegs.com/i/Auto+Meter/105/2327/10002/-1?CAWELAID=1710764603&catargetid=230006180000514800&cadevice=c&&cagpspn=pla&gclid=COz-jpm-wrwCFchhfgodpEwAnQ

I don't blame you. I've heard good stuff about the $120 SS ebay header, Ill prob go that route when the time comes, I do hate how the OEM steel header is the only thing on the engine that is a heavy rust monster. As far as the square tank goes, that looks like a nice unit to me, but I cant find room for something that bulky. Have you thought about going with a custom spun aluminum tank? Can tuck those just about anywhere. I've been eyeballing this Co.: http://www.aluminumgastanks.net/options.html I like how you can have them do whatever you want, prices seem very reasonable for custom tank work also. They have 10", 8", 6" at just about any length. If you don't need a custom tank, there are spun aluminum tanks on eBay that are very inexpensive.

I just want to make sure I have a 10-12 gal tank. I plan on using it as a daily driver a lot during the summer. And I know pacesetter have made a name for themselves but problem is the angle or lack there of I should say.

Probably going to go the $120 route and hope for the best. Tank looks fine to me as well just need to make sure I can get some straps to mount it securely.

Have you decided what your doing for a fuse box yet?

Did you get the exact cell? Or just one similar? Just curious if it's the same if you were satisfied with the quality.
