hmmmm, that's funny I have a 04 maxima with 180k and besides the basic routine services iv had 0 problems with it cause like most of us, we take care of our cars. maybe you should have been a better owner and took care of stuff when it worn out instead of ignoring it, and allowing the worn out part to take other parts with it as well

I had a 04 6MT until totaled in 2012. Few things about the headers;
The O2 sensor bung for the A/F sensor must be placed in the main pipe where the three exhaust ports on the header come together. If you use the bung in one of the port tubes of the header, the car will NOT run right and you will get CELs relating to the A/F O2. Reason I mention this is because back in my time there were cheap headers for 6th gen on ebay. The O2 bung was placed in one of the header ports instead of the main pipe where all ports come together inside the header. This alone would cause lots of issues. You might have to extend the sensor wiring which is easy to do, make sure you solder the wires and not crimp it because laziness.

OBX-R headers are done the right way. Still on ebay.
