Default Are there any Carb Legal headers for the scion tc 2008?

Im looking for headers for my scion tc 2008. I was wondering what headers are out there that can give you great performance with airflow as well as being carb legal.

The only way to keep warrenty is to use the scion headers which are available at Toyota. without free flow converter and exhaust changed the headers wil do little no matter what kind.

unfortunately not. the first cat is welded onto the exhaust manifold and from what ive seen the headers on the market are cat deletes. and from a lot of feed back from the forums the o2 sensors on the tc set off the check engine light when running test pipes or aftermarket headers. honestly the only street legal product out there that will give you power is the trd supercharger. intakes do improve felt torque in the mid range of the power band but are not street legal. i have a injen cold air on mine. as far as exhaust goes a new s-pipe like invidia's is a great way to improve air flow but wont dramatically increase power. what it comes down to is unless you bypass the emission settings on your computer which toyota has made almost impossible or use force induction that little 4cylinder just wont put out over 160whp. i love the tc its a great car for the money and is fun to drive, but bolt ons will give you more sound than power.
