Default Borla replica header question

Hey all, picked up an ebay borla replica a few weeks ago and just getting to the install. I noticed on one of the collector tubes, and one of the larger diameter pipe a small 1.5" long bar (or rods) welded to the the tubes (2 all together). I have no idea what they are for and would like to grind them off before I wrap them. Any thoughts on what they are??




Peace!

seem like a spacer of some sort or maybe a piece leftover from the manufacturing process

Yeah, thats what I'm guessing too. I'm thinking they used them to hold the pipes in place while they were being welded??

The clearances are actually really tight between the bar and the tubes. I'm sure they will sit a little further apart once the tubes are "massaged" during installation on the car, but I'm still going to grind them off to ease the wrap install...

Thanks for looking...

Peace!
