Yes it's like $89 shipped ... very easy to install , note there is no CAT so you will need a O2 emulator from here http://o2simulator.com/ $40 to eliminate the CEL

As I begin to prep my MINI for the Dragon I like to add a new part every year before I go down. Earlier this week I perfomed an exhaust upgrade by replacing the old manifold and cats with a new shiny header.

So this is how you do this mod.First you will want to remove the fasteners that join the exhaust system to the catalytic converter. Then you will want to unplug the O2 sensors electrical connectors. Next remove the fasteners that hold the heat shields in around the manifold. Don't bother trying to take the heatshields out of the car, just move them around to get to the bolts that hold the manifold to the head. Remove the Manifold to Head bolts. The Manifold should then be able to be pulled out underneath the car. Installation is reverse of removal. When installing the new Header It may be a tight fight going back into the car, you just have to get the angle right. Make sure to put Copper Anti-seize on all threads.

You will want to remove the heatshield that has the hand on it before installation, since this will not fit without some heavy modification. Once installed you can now enjoy a more ponounced burbling of the exhaust under decelarration. NOTE: header installed on vehicle has no cat. so it will not pass E-Check where applicable. An O2 Sim will have to be purchased to keep the check engine light off.
