I'll post pics after I get home. My roommate is swapping the stock manifolds back on right now.
That sucks, i bought these hope i get right stuff..

Check ebay....I would recommend the stainless steel ones as you don't want to have to put a new one in every few years

I'm personally going the custom route. If you get out there and find a race build shop of some kind, which does it's own fabrication, you can get a set of long-pipes like the Kleemann's, but for half their price. At least thats what I've been able to find The shop building my headers has more than 25 years experience in race/track/tuning/performance - so I know I'm in good hands

Custom flanges... hot shot bends... down-pipes with 200 cell magnaflow cats welded in... O2 sensors ports welded in to stock positions... all for $1300. I don't have ridiculous international shipping costs now but most importantly, these pipes will not be off-the-shelf/mass produced, they will be custom built specifically for my car. Totally unique and one-of-a-kind

I strongly suggest shopping around domestically for yours, and to be honest, some of the best people you'll find to bend/weld headers, most likely don't even know what the internet is. You need to hunt down an old school expert! You won't regret it!

A video of fabrication and install coming soon!

If you have the option to have custom built headers by people who build super high-performance vehicles like dragsters, I think it's a no brainer?

Ah ha! That is understandable. Nobody wants to wait for new toys Lol

I guess you may well have to go for the eBay option then? At least your contact can check them for you once they arrive

I had my headers for 5 years now. Never had a problem with them. Of course, I don't drive my car in the winter but I drove it almost daily during the summer and fall.
