They look very nice. I wonder about the O2 bung in the top?
They look shorter than my Hedmans.

Does anyone know if these stainless y-pipes are still available anywhere? Didn't see any on Ebay.

Shouldn't the Y-Pipe fit over the collectors instead of inside of them? That would seem to dramatically increase the likelihood of leaks.

My FLP's are like that. The connector drops down from it's original location.

My Hedmans are longer than those, the tops of my collectors are under the floor. No room for O2s on top.

Those are by far the best looking cheap headers I have seen.

They are clones of Kooks headers.

Ive had them for a year and absolutely love them. The "you get what you pay for" theory just doesnt work here. Had a great experience with mine.

I would rather spend my money with mfgrs in the U.S. than with rip-off artists off-shore to save a few bucks. That's one of our problems now.

I have a pair of OBX headers for my '93 vette. They work great. No fitment or quality issues. Seems like they are direct copies of Stainless Works. I do agree with you but these same headers from Stainless are about $1200. Compare that to the OBX which were $495. Some U.S manufactures, especially for vette parts, have been ripping off the community for years. Finally there is a less expensive alternative.

It was just a mock up to make sure the y pipe i got was going to line up okay.

I have had these on my car for a year or so and the only thing I disliked about them was the 3.5" outlet. Reducers throw off the whole catback unless you modify your y pipe. Other than that. I love them

Thats great, I dont have the cash flow for a 1200 headers setup.

My headers and ORY were 295 back in the day.

So, it's OK to buy bootleg movies, music or software since it's cheaper?

That's comparing apples to oranges really... Its what people can afford, not the fact of it being "right or legal"
