Ummm that's who I bought my header from with fitment issuses! Of course send it back to them for a refund but exspect to pay the return shippping. Go with the cheapest you can find on eBay cause they will exactly the same.
How do I know? .... I gone threw 4 differrent header "brand" vendors finally after my 3rd I would recommend brand name borla for best fitment and best sound.

No... You pay for what you get to be honest! All the ebay reps are the same, i had 3 different sellers, borla is the only one with perfect 100% fitment clearing everything and still able to get to your oil filter as well with ease. The reps will make it very hard to get to your oil filter(as some stated you have to remove your header each time to do a oil change and also hits your Power Steering lines) <~~~ I had this problem with all 3 Reps, ALSO... The sound quailty is different from borla vs reps but you still get a little rumble out of the reps VS oem header.

I searched for 3 hours... Go to MSN.com search Borla Header 17183 you get 10% off bing and by far the cheapest anywhere. Was like $326shipped Fedex ground(Faster then UPS) By far cheaper then eBay or any other sites and I call the company to make sure i was getting the right ones... They told me they come straight from Borla!

When I had my v2 eBay reps from Speedyracer iirc, they worked and sounded good and the only issue with fitment is that they did also have to be widened some. Once I had one side on the bottom of the motor, I just kinda had to wrestle the other side on by expanding the two sides away from each other. But once they were on they were fine for the year or so I had it.
