He's probably enjoying his ebay headers from the sellers that used to send out the correct parts

boombop and trader-nas are both still reputable. If you guys really want to feel secure, order from Euro-Spec.

I just got mine today from Trader-NAS and from looking at the pictures in Ken's thread, they are the correct ones. Going to go get them ceramic coated next week.

Hey Ken... why does your thread say 15-20hp and Euro-Specs site says 6-10hp? Just curious where you got your numbers from... are they talking RWHP and you're talking Crank HP?

BEWARE - I recieved the "correct" headers. i sprayed them and installed them and then noticed the o2 sensor bung was out of alignment. The O2 sensor could not be installed because the bung pointed directly at the other header. Also, the exhaust wouldnt have bolted up anyways because the flange rested against the trans (i probably could have bent the manifold but that shouldnt be necessary).

Right headers, cheap jig.

My Ride: 94 325i full m3 swap
welp, i bought my headers from copracr and you said you got them from optionimport, right? well they fit pretty well, just the precat o2 sensor (but now just the first in line o2 since cats are deleted) on the header for ports 1-3 was a little off so i'm going to have to buy a new o2 sensor that is shorter and more narrow so that it wont hit the other header once it is in. I couldnt even get that stock o2 in, so i had to plug the hole with the bolt that came with it and some threadlock. but once i get the o2, it'll be a quick, 10 minute fix on a cold engine. so no complaints really. just the CEL.

ha basically the same story as this, except my flange worked out fine.
