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?

Yeah I'm really interested in knowing what one of these "decent" headers for over a grand look like as well.

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.

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.

Had anyone had experience with this header from kl. I know this is a dead thread but didn’t really see anyone that ran it. Anyone? I have one one the way. Top mount extreme. Wanted to see if anyone had any input. Thanks

Did you receive it yet? I'm going to need a new header soon and want to know what you think of it.

Yes I have it and am trying to figure out how it fit it for my situation. I don’t have a lh alternator and it seems to hit the lh power steering pump pulley not allowing it to seat. Going to switch to a rh ps pump and reroute all accessories away from that side. Aside from that it prob would work with a alternator there , but I am running a mechman and don’t want it around the heat. Trying to figure it out. Should work.

How much ROI is there using this manifold if you have to do all this unnecessary work just to fit it?

It might be just the way I have things. It may work with a alternator rather than the ps pump I have next to it. But I don’t want an alternator there due to not wanting any heat anywhere near it. I was hoping someone had pics of it actually mounted up to see what they are running for accessory configuration. Worst case I’m never going to have ac with it and put all accessories on the driverside. For me that not a big deal but it isn’t just plopping in as I thought it would definitely getting caught up on the power steering pump pulley and not allowing to seat. If it was too easy I’d probably be suspicious. I also tend to do things the hardest way possible
