Ringland failures with ELH?
I've read on a few forums that a possible cause for ringland failures on cyl's 2 and 4 is due to higher EGT's with the stock unequal length manifold.
If this is true, has anyone running an equal length header had ringlands crack?

#3 is a common one to crack too.
People have tried to blame the excessive #4 failures on everything imaginable. What comes to mind is:
#4 has longer exhaust manifold runners which leads to higher EGTs
#4 receives fuel later in the path (fuel gets to other cylinders first so the pressure has dropped by the time it gets to #4)
The intake manifold flows more air to #4 so it runs consistently leaner
The factory ECU runs more timing on #4 than the others so it will be the first to knock and trigger the ECU to pull timing (the ECU can hear knock better on #4 than the others because that's where the knock sensor is)

I think EL header is a step in the right direction, Nothing other then a good tune can prevent that.
