    They look like all the other ebay headers except with their little logo on it. If that's the case I have the same headers and I would suggest you go with something like Pacesetters if you want to save some money.

    My recent experience with installing headers, They are way too much of a bitch to install to skimp on them and not go with quality headers. I went with the kooks and from the looks of them and the way they fit Im glad I spent the extra money for the better header!

    I decided on either pacesetters (wanting to do cam at the same time) or ARH/Kooks. Just depends on how much I want to spend now.

    I know kooks, ARH, and QTPs are the top of the line, stainless steel and last forever. Its just that I couldnt see myself spending the good part of a grand on headers, while headers like pacesetter and hookers give you close to the same HP. Since all decent longtubes are about the same.

    At least buy pacesetters, no ebay cheap headers. Ive heard the primaries are smaller in person than advertised. You get what you pay for.

    I think the primaries were only smaller on the OBX headers. On my set of ebay headers they were 1.75" as advertised.

    I have those headers but no logo on mine...Good way to go if you don't want to WASTE your money, but just my .02 since everyone else seems to swear by anything other than them. Not saying that I wasn't VERY sceptical at first, but now I'm glad that I bought them.

    Only thing you would have to do is get rid of/modify the air/egr tubes, and possibly have the collector lowered 1/2". I also had to slightly bang out my driver's side firewall but we installed these headers on my friends ws6 2 weeks later and no dropping the collector and no banging on the firewall there so I dunno...

    Personally, I'm a cheap ass (but to a certain extent), and if you don't expect to be making huge power or have a bigger cube motor than I would say that it's worth the $$$... and until someone else can prove otherwise, it's all just heresay
