ok it finally got here, a family member paid for it for my christmas present, it's sad to see a company thats been around so long go under, these are excellent headers, and look to be very well made, S&s had a very solid reputation going all the way back to '68 i believe. I got rid of the air fittings today, no point in them sticking out of the side of the header not connected to anything, I split a piece of stainless steel exaust tubing and it fit perfectly on the header tube,after cuttiing off and grinding down the two fittings, David maule migged it up for me, when this entire system is fitted and on the car, eventually i'll send these off to be Jet hot coated, they last pretty much forever that way. the paint on them never lasts. I have to make a bracket to mount to the rear exaust hanger on the engine. I'm thinking of making something to protect the tubes from road damage.
