    Want ripped off? Buy your performance parts off EBay. Lots of cheap crap there.
    Want quality? Buy from a reputable known performance parts vendor.

    That's what I have, and I love them. I got the catted version due to CT emissions being as bad as California. Very high quality at a great price.

    The ebay posting shows two headers in the pictures and uses the term "gaskets". However there is no mention of headers. All written material reads "header". Either written by someone who has a poor grasp of English or it is only 1 header.

    Lots of people use these headers and they are many threads about them you do indeed get 2 headers in the kit. However people complain about the egr tubes breaking, no big deal usually people toss that anyway when doing headers so just have the cut off and welded shut. The other thing is that the collector points slightly upwards so the y pipe either needs to be modified or be custom made. Other than that most people are very happy with them; is the stainless as good of quality as qtp, arh or kooks? No but they get the job done.

    You might get lucky and score from ebay now and then, but you are rolling the dice when using ebay for performance parts. More often than not, you are going to get junk or lesser quality parts from ebay. Pay a little more and don't open yourself up to risk is what Sarge is saying.

    I agree.

    The "ONLY" thing I'll resort to ebay for would be searching for a very rare, hard to find, 60's or 70's muscle car part that I couldn't find at the swap meets. And even at that, I'll exhaust every avenue including Hemmings classifieds before I start fishing ebay.
    I prefer to look at what I'm buying before I plunk my money down. Fleabay is a last resort.

    I have the Ebay headers. No complaints from them at all. My EGR pipe broke off too but this can happen to other brands, Hooker, etc. I recommend cutting them off before installing. You'll need a custom y pipe also. Had them since 05 I believe and they still look great.
