My first impression was not good.
1:the chrome job was very bad blemish's poor coverage.
2:The flange openings looked terrible,all the trouble I went through to port match the head to the gasket was going to be for not.I had to go in there with the die grinder and make the ports the bigger size to match the gasket.
3:the collector was a mess also,all kinds of slag in there leftover mig wires stuck to the sides.One of the pipes going into the collector had a bigass lip on it.Like you would see after the chop saw was takin to the pipe,they didnt bother to deburr any of the pipes.So I went in there with a pencil grinder and cleaned all the rough edges.

On the positive side it bolted up to the head fine and the fit was good as far as clearance on the motor underneith.

Honestley I figured after waiting almost 5 weeks to recieve the header I would get something with a bit more craftsmanship than what I got.Hope you guys have better luck with youre purchase if you choose to deal with the guys.

I seen one posted a few months ago that was just so bad it was hard to believe. I was thinking of getting a header for my 1998 Metro, but I might be able to make one myself and it would look twice as good.
