I have looked at them as well.As far as i know they are the only place we can get these.There was a guy on the geo board making them i have emailed him several times with no reply so i will more then likely buy mine from the website you posted.

the oem exhaust manifold is really an excellent piece. if you are really stuck on having a tube header, ask yourself this question. is the cost worth a tube header of questionable quality?

there are a number of threads you should review before you throw down hard earned cash. :wink: this is definitely a "buyer beware" sort of deal.

Indeed that's where im at.Also you can match the exhaust to the head.I have done this in the past and i have had good results.

I emailed him as well but got no reply.

I know Sird is shotty quality. I remember reading somewhere that two people got these exact same order but completely different build qualities.

I have one of those lying around for my car, but still haven't put it on. My GF has one on her GTi and it fits and works, but is rusty as hell.
