Judging by the quality of these welds, I'd have to assume they were done by either a 6 yr old kid in China or possibly a trained orangutan. This is nasty. bleh

sucks but the old saying "you get what you pay for" sometimes does apply lol

 

You took the words out of my mouth.

 

Why buy a $50 junk one from eBay that you already knew was going to be garbage? It was $50: what quality manufacturing could you possible conceive would come from a header that cheap?

 

You could have just spent $100 and bought a used dc. I see them on there on a regular basis.

I buy these and then sell them on craigslist for $100 ea. But they usually aren't this bad. I've sold probably 4 already. There's no way I would put this on my own car.

Not to sound like a racist ass but I assume all your customers are mentally handicapped or of Mexican origin?

 

:crazy:

 

That's a funny gig and if you can pull it off then that's great for you.

not all of the ebay header's are like that...the one i have the welds look pretty nice and no where near like that. the noly thing bad a bout mine is that its a hard steel so the #1 runner cracked..drilled the ends welded it up, and its been perfect for over 2 years.

Seems like alot of work for $50. (kind of) idk I guess I wouldn't really be interested in finding time to show the header to people, etc. But I'm also a lazy college student so probably isn't saying much. Still new to me though I've heard of people doing cars and rims, etc. but just parts like that is pretty sweet if it works for you.

Ive found that ebay products are hit or miss. My buddy had a set of ebay headers and actually werent bad, then he sold them when he got his ebay turbo kit, which also has given him no problems either. But then ive heard many a horror story about ebay products too so.
