Stainless Headers for the Straight Six

Haven't seen these before. Stainless steel headers for the six. And $200 with free shipping. Down pipes, hardware, and gaskets included. Mine are now ceramic coated but if you're into shiny engine bobble, this might be an option.

I don't know much about stainless but it seems like a decent grade:

"T304 stainless steel is widely used in the food and food preparation industry. Surgical equipment and hypodermic needles are some medical uses for this grade of stainless steel. Corrosion resistance makes it a prime choice for marine hardware. It is able to withstand hot and cold temperatures, which is why it is used for cryogenic tanks."

Those are prices not much more than a replacement manifold. Tempting -

If you didn't like the look I'm sure you could still coat them with something. Coating and pipes may hold up longer than the steel model.

Stop trying to spend my money.

I spent money twice on mine. Just trying to save you a little! And you could run a dual exhaust or collect into one. I'm curious if they fit without issue.

Well if someone wants to buy me a set, I'll gladly test them on my wagon.
