Hope this goes through. Will probably get a set once I pull the 5.3 for something larger.

Awesome, thanks for listening to the community!

However, can you justify you headers being priced over $200 more than BRP's?
So far you might have a slight quality advantage and an 1/8". We drive S-10's. We want to go fast for as cheap as possible. Why should we buy yours?

The way i see it they have 3 things going for them. Stainless steel. Bigger then whats out there if it can be pulled off. And certainly build quality. Not many are happy with the brps fitment but they are they only ones available. Quality does come at a price. Got to pay to play. If i wasnt going turbo i would sell my current hacked up longtubes for a set of these.

There's a difference. WE BUILD IT.

BRP's headers are great if price is your number one concern (and they have lots of applications we don't cover too).

Keep in mind BRP's are only mild steel (half the material price of the 304L stainless we use) and they will rust even with a coating to try protect it.

Stainless Works manufacturers everything from 304L Stainless which has so little iron in it that a magnet won't stick. This material basically cannot rust unless it is exposed to really extreme situations outside the realm of automotive use.

Don't forget our Life Time Warranty!

200 bucks more for ss vs mild steel is well worth the price right there.

Nobody wants to be the guinea pig. There's a lot of interest but everyone knows that new products sometimes have a few issues. I bet they're waiting to see how they work out. $150 is money I can put in parts I know will work let alone $890. Hopefully this works out.

That's why we need to work together to find the best donor truck possible.

It needs to represent the "average S10 LS swap" and that should allow them to work for most people's application or only require someone with a different setup to make a modest change to make them work.

My fingers are crossed that we can fit the 1 7/8"

Depending on the space and whether it would help, maybe a stepped 1 3/4" to 1 7/8" header would be possible (but we would have to up the price a little bit if that was the direction we went)

If we can't fit a standard design 1 7/8" primary header, I will come to the group, lay out the options and we can decide as a whole what to do.

We are getting there guys! For those of you that want to see this happen, hit up some other S10 guys and get them over here!

I have gone through this thread and added anyone who threw their name in the hat.

We have enough to start taking deposits. I figure it wouldn't be worthwhile to take deposits from the beginning in case we never got close BUT I think we're going to do it.

Anyone who has put their name in this thread for a set will get a PM with instructions from me this week. Anyone else who is interested, let me know!


-Revolutionary - I'm going through a huge amount of Thanksgiving weekend emails right now. I will keep an eye out. Just to make sure, its Jason@stainlessworks.net

HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GOOD HOLIDAY!

-Jason

That's what I needed to hear! PM sent.

Also, keep in mind S10 guys: people still buy used CPW headers at a premium and frequently ask him to make more. Don't miss out on this!

My truck would probably be a perfect candidate, except its in Maine.

It's an 03 S10 with an L33/T56 swap in place, using current performance mounts. No exhaust system on it.
