Without a top-down shot, it's also hard to determine if it's an EL 4-2-1 design with really short primaries or a 4-2-1 UEL design that's not as UE as the reps are. Which is confusing because the thread started as a RS-fitment UEL, then got off track talking about EL, then got off track talking about i-fitment. I have NO idea what the final result is at this point
At this point, the thread pertains directly to RS fitment UEL. That's what there is to test right now. Lot's of modularity designed into the Moore Performance stuff, so other options are bound to follow!

Thanks for your hard work guys. A lot of us N/A member's are looking forward to a quality header.
Thanks for the vote of confidence. Just to clear it up I'm not Moore - Moore Performance is Ryan Moore's gig (NASIOC handle: Moore Performance) where I lend a hand. I'm hoping to have my own Moore-specific handle soon to un-muddy the waters a bit

And to answer your question, initial fitment is UEL and for early RS models. We hope to offer a full lineup at some point, but with other parts in development (both n/a and turbo), it's hard to say when that will happen. But I will say if you have a test car that can be left for a period of time (we're not talking a week here), then we can make any of these fitments happen. Discounts given for test cars of course. SWPA/OH region cars preferred for proximity's sake.

Good question. it was a customer option. You're right - v-bands aren't the norm, so a 2/3 bolt flange would make sense, and may make its way into final production. The V bands are pretty sweet though, especially when it comes to trans pulling time
