    If that works for you then more power to you, but we've been over this already in the header thread, the ebay headers usually don't measure true, the sellers tell you you're getting a certain diameter of tubing, then when you actually receive the headers and put a ruler to them and measure you'll see you got a smaller diameter tube than what they promised you. Plenty of people on this site have "I sent them back" stories to tell about this, buy with caution.

    I understand what you are saying. I know I took a gamble when I bought those headers. But for me it was worth it. This car is my "budget" street car. I must have lucked out and got a good set.

    I'm curious, did you happen to measure the pipes before installation? How was the fitment?

    I actually did not measure the pipes before I put them in sorry.

    The fitment was JUST OK. I did not have to do any special cutting to get them to fit the only issue is where the driver side header ends the angle is pointing up towards the floorboard so getting the ory to fit right was a bitch. I need to get motor mounts now b/c the exhaust rattles too much.

    Just so everyone knows you do get what you pay for. In my eyes these headers are worth the money b/c this car is just a fun weekend toy.

    I guess that's a fair deal then, I am jealous of the fact that you only payed like $200 for them, I payed about $800 for my Kooks set.

    I take it one part at a time and do research on prices and have great luck. Plus my Dad and his friends are all into cars and some own speed shops.
