I'm pretty sure they aren't made anymore. Look around in the classifieds for them.

Yeah I had a tough time finding these too.

There's a group buy going on right now in the SW regional forum: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=774216

These seem like the best alternative if you don't feel like waiting for used ones.

You know those aren't Technik though, right? I helped install Anthony's, though, they ARE nice headers. They're just SuperSprint style, not Technik.

Aye. Just an alternative to a discontinued header brand.

Thank you for your reccommendations.

What is the different between N/A header and F/I header?
Can I fit N/A header with F/I car?

Are those headers just as effective as the Technik's? Are they the same as ebay headers?

No and no.

Technik is a totally different design and the last batch made was the 3rd revision. Equal length.

Most headers are a SuperSprint style. While that's not a bad thing, The Techniks are a better design. The ones Anthony is selling are better than most Ebay headers. If they're the ones I'm thinking, they're proven to fit (no worries about O2s hitting the tranny tunnel) and they're a thicker material than Ebay. Worth the extra money for the quality.

What happened to the Tecnick headers? I have a set of coated SuperSprint, and always thought about the Technik.

Technik headers make more low end power, but both ebay style and Techniks make similar mid and peak power.
