heat shield and aftermarket header

I plan on getting the trd s/c soon and i know the header can get pretty hot...i was wondering if there were any aftermarket headers out there that can fit with the stock heat shield? I know i could get it coated, but i would like the extra security b/c i live in nj and don't want problems if i am forced to pop my hood.

There aren't. You'll need to cut the mounting tabs off the OEM header and weld them onto the new header if you want to mount the heatshield.

Not that I would do something like this, but it certainly has occurred to me that someone could make a dollar or two doing this to help stealth an unapproved aftermarket header in a smog nazi infested state. It would rather suck to get caught though.
Thnx for your reply. I'm pretty sure i can find a place that'll pass inspection...i'm just worried about getting hassled if i get pulled over.
####, when i was waiting for my tC to show up I drove by the dealership every morning to see if it was there. One sunday morning i forgot the seatbelt, no ones on the road didn't think it would matter much. pulled over yanked out of the car and the whole thing searched for a g damn least i didn't get a ticket, stupid expect some hell for anything like that.
