^^^ the ones I replaced have been wrapped for about 3 years & no issues with cracks. And they were DC Sports UELs. Same 304 SS majority of the manufactures use.

Only replaced for ELH

I think alot has to do with the type of weather that the car is driven in. I just ordered them last week.. they should be dropped off today.. Living in south florida helps i believe due to the fact the headers get hot and since it never is cold here the metal doesnt fatigue as much as if you were driving up in the north were the temps are very low. maybe Im wrong. we shall see ...

Well these are my next purchase, and I live in Boston so we see plenty of variation in weather, but my cnt down pipe has been holding up great so I'm hoping these headers do too

Can someone with a snake cam check out the two collectors where they merge? I'm curious if these have terrible cutouts like the eBay ones Bad Noodle picked up. Not such a big deal on his because the slip joints allow access to bore it out and smooth the transition. Here it would require cutting the header apart to gain access and rewelding.

$99 for Equal Length headers.... lol

"Speedyracer" is the seller/brand. EDIT: I'll save people the trouble...

Well I had to postpone my CNT ELH tune since my 20g blew. I removed turbo and it has shaft play scraping housing.
Maybe next time after it gets rebuilt I'll see what I gain with them.
Only thing is I'll be adding tgv deletes at the same time too.

Damn, sorry about the turbo. I don't think tgv deletes will skew the results. They don't add a whole lot of power.

See those flex joints? I would bet the amount of money those headers cost you that they will come apart internally because they are the wrong type for the application. Ask me how I know: search this review forum for Synic/M2/Megan headers and decide for yourself. I'm now running HKS 409s and have had no issues and perfect fitment.

You get what you pay for.

Yeah but I have a set of tgv deletes laying around here and I'll be delivering the turbo sometime this coming week to blouch since I will actually have time to since by boss will be gone and not complain about me taking care of personal stuff during working hours.

^nice!

I too am very interested in the original header that was being discussed. Hard to justify the prices out there for headers.. specially the Killer B headers. I was previously considering the Invidia's but then found these and googled about them and found this thread.

So is CNT EQual length a good buy? or a bad buy? Seems exactly like the Perrin Piece.

Good buy IMO. Great fitment and I just love the sound they produce now. My turbo rebuild should be done tomorrow so I am not using the car right now but I have no negative experience since I bought them.
I always wanted the Perrins but didn't want to spend $900 on them. These CNTs are awesome.

Did you ever fish a snake cam down in to look at the collector weld? I'm concerned it's not a proper cutout and you are looking at imbalanced exhaust temps...

The kinugawa header had some very nice cutouts right at the spot your talking about. I'm just sorry I didn't take pictures before I bolted everything up the same night you asked to show you. You could rub your fingers on the welds without cutting them off.

My car is getting its finished tune done this week so I'll have some numbers soon on a fresh short block.

Just found this hidden in my thrash bin you cant see very much still you can see part of the collectors that follow back into the other pipes.

Heres a vid of me waiting to get my car back a motor breakin and three days tuning seem like it takes forever when your waiting, and driving a rental minivan.
