Borla replica UEL = $200
OBX Cobb replica EL = $300

Can you compete with this? It's simply a matter of business. Do you think it's worth getting into? TWE offers a premium EL header that's very near that of the Cobb design in specs, but it's $1000 versus $300 and very few people buy them. Borla still makes their UEL header, but they also make a LOT of other products. They don't care so much if many sell or not versus the replica. I think Borla's is somewhere around $600. Then you have Hayward and Scott from the UK that also produces a high end UEL exhaust similarly priced to the TWE products at around $1000, but they don't sell in the US.

Want to do something unique for the NA market, make some intake manifolds. That's where we have zero aftermarket products in the NA market.
