I don't think anyone has actually bought one, I'm half curious to see what they are actually like, the photos look half-decent.

The headers in my brother's 9000 make a noticeable difference in spool-up.

They're probably better than "BFchucks"

I find it humorous that everyone used to complain that there was no low priced headers for our cars.
"You can by turbo headers for a Honda for like 300 bucks, why can't we get one for our cars?"

Now someone makes a cheap set and everyone complains.

I'm sure they are not that great, and probably wouldn't last all to long.
For 300 bucks they may be worth a shot for some low budget toy car, that someone is just throwing together for hahas.

If you want quality, you have to pay for it, hence the headers that cost $800 and up which are made someplace other then China.

My chuck header STILL has paint on it! Did manage 507crank though it. Whether it did anything apart from take a few months off my life is debatable.

At least the Korean thing can't claim equal length runners from the outset and the runners actually meet the flange.

Chuck's was 'equal length runners' *









*To nearest foot.

Has anyone actually bought & fitted one of these to their 9000? For the price I'd be tempted to give it a shot when I'm looking at a good £1000 ($1,600) to buy and fit a Maptun tubular. I know it wont give as much power as a tubular manifold but do you think there could be an extra 10 or 15 bhp to be made there on my 3076? Pretty tempted to find out tbh....

is'nt it the equal length tubing and smoothness into the turbo that makes the extra power mostly? That just seems like it would just save a lil weight and be shiny...
