If my shop had a rooftop it would have as much stuff in it as yours. Instead all my crap is in various sheds and I have a tarp roof. Nice car!

Well somebody is spoiled. Nice shop. Mines big but not tall enough for a hoist. Nice job on the exhaust. I need to get me a pipe bender.

That calmini header tend to leak if you don't cut off the little protruding pipe peaces past the flange on the down pipe.

Calmini sold 4-2 headers that bolt on to the stock downpipe. I can't see much of yours, but I don't know of any other headers like that that would be common in the US, so RP91GT is probably right about the source. The design is unusual, sequentially pairing cylinders 1-3, 2-4.

What he's referring to is that the downpipe has some sleeves/flanges that help to locate it properly in the OEM cast iron exhaust manifold. They cause leaks and poor fitment if they are left as is with the Calmini header.

If you have problems with exhaust leaks at the downpipe junction, check to see those flanges have been removed.

It's not a terrible header given the odd design, but Genie and OEM Cultus are definitely better.
