So you have to remove the stock header to change the oil filter?

The oil filter is located just below and slightly underneath the header just in front of the clutch cover. You don't need to entirely remove the pipe, just loosen the muffler clamp and the flange bolts and you can rotate the pipe far enough to get at the oil filter cover. Most aftermarket head pipes are routed so that you can access the oil filter without loosening anything. To answer your other post about whether its worth the 250+ for an aftermarket exhaust, I'd say its not the most bang for the buck, but in addition to a modest performance gain, you also get easier oil filter maintenance and a more trick looking exhaust.
