$321 Cheap for a pretty good looking header.Id rock one.Doesn't look as near as bad as the SS autochrome ones.And id bet with the proper bracing it'd work wonderful.

Its funny though there isn't a single 'good' or decent header on the market for under a grand.Capt bondo is in his own world for headers for the US market.Tempting me to get a damn welder and make my own crap.

So I guess that post is supposed to read that what I'm making is not "decent" per your standards?

Care to post a pic of what your "decent" headers look like?

I took it to mean that you were the only one with a worthwhile product in the US. As in a good thing. But who knows for sure with the grammar of people around here most of the time.

hello!

if some need pic and info from the disigne of this turbo hedder you can find it in my speed shopp link http://forum.savarturbo.se/viewtopic...r=asc&start=45

the finish produkt is somwhat diffrent and need som work in the colektors to youse twin entry turbo.

it will come a second typ in the future that is more like my hedder.
but this first typ is a good system if you put a night of work in it, and it has verry strong and crack free pipes.

I'm so confused at that header right now^. It looks like the flange is sideways.

dont forget tho that while there is a step teh cross sectional area hasnt changed if that is the same internal diameter .

This is an entire thread right here!

I tend to agree with Volvosport.

...it seems as if you aren't taking boundary layer adhesion and the Coandă effect into consideration together. A turbulent boundary layer is far less likely to separate at a bend then a laminar boundary layer.
Of course, something like the crappy short side radius on the 530 head could prolly get anything to separate.

I'm assuming that what you said was a reference to boundary layer separation.
