this coming weekend is the weekend i will be designing the equal length headers for 2.2 and 2.5 dual ports. i will be using the 4-2-1 method. i will offer them in mild steel and in stainless steel. the single ports i will be working on later in next week. and will be available in 2 different sizes and three different material types, mild steel, aluminized steel, and stainless steel.

feed back and ideas welcome.

Not sure if someone has already asked this, but do you plan on making any ea82 headers sometime?

Cool! this will be a great alternative to the UEL headers!

 

I love the way that the header that I bought from you sounds, fits and looks.

the only thing I wish I could change about the UEL header is the ability to use the factory skidplate. (i know that is just the way it is) but I am still 100% happy with it.

An ea81/ea82 header would be worth considering and can be engineered to fit ea81 and ea82 cars the same.

A true dual exhaust header with an x under the trans would be cool.

Not in the works right now.. There hasn't been a lot of interest. I will revisit the issue after the show when I recoup some cash.. He may go for a short run of them if he can get enough people to make it worth his while.

no plan on ea81 and ea82 headers until i can find enough demand for them. but i can see it happening at some point down the road.

 

factory skid plate... i would have tried to make that work if the original cars i had used still had them. but for these headers i will see if i can get them to fit with the factory skid plate. i had a design in mind but i know it wont work with a skid plate. so ill look into another design.

 

dual exhaust header with an X pipe thats the first time any one has asked for that. i can look into that as well after i get finished with two equal length header.

You are like the old school version of Nameless Performance!  

   

   How many people would it take to get your interest for gen 2 and 3 headers?

yeah im still working on finding a good shop to buy. so some things i have to pass and some things i have to do in a short amount of time. i would say around 10 buyers would make it worth it to prototype and everything. an estimate for a header for those older cars would still be close to the single port header price.

Trouble is, there is a difference between interest and cash-on-the-table.  "Old-Gen'rs" can be a cheap lot.

Yes we are!  I do have a budget and cannot stray too far away from it . On the up side my wife told me if I get rid of a few cars and a truck I can put all the 

proceeds into my project.. I am not concerned about how much it costs me since I have zero intentions of ever selling it.

So, why haven't the prices gone down with more sales?

It seems that if the engineering is paid for, the rest of it would be for the community.

 

Just saying.

Just saying.

There are 3 joints in the main pieces alone. Your pieces are demanding a fit and finish price. This is not a fit and finish product.

Just because people can't do for themselves, Does not mean that they deserve to be taken. I am pretty sure you can buy every piece you welded together. Maybe not the flange.


That is all.....
