Well before you get bombarded by the idiots yelling at you to search, I don't believe there is much of a difference in quality between what the sellers offer on ebay, I think you just have to look for the cheapest price on them. My understanding is that the ebay headers are pretty much all the same.

I would also like to know. After searching it does seem like all ebay headers are basically the same.. but I would like some clarification before buying. I posted a thread earlier today asking about what seller is a safe bet. I found some lists but they were all out dated

thnx bro... i just want to know if this will be a good quality compare to other ebay headers. or is there a better one from that price range. Hopefully anyone in this forum already bought this and give us feebacks. i see that other ebay headers costs like 150-250 which is a little expensive compare to 119 shipped. i also want to know what will happen if you install a bad quality header.

thanks!

I think the only problems you could have with a poor quality header is that it would be warped and wouldn't fit flush when being bolted on or possibly cracking if the welds were especially bad.

I think they're all the same. Go with the cheaper one, that's what I did and couldn't be happier. Also get new OEM gaskets and use them instead of the ones that come with the ebay headers.

That's cool, ebay headers for KA24 240 Nissan suck then huh I've only heard of a few cases when ebay headers for an E46 BMW went bad, and if they do it's $120 to replace

Welp..dont buy the 40 dollar ones lol
Get at least.. 150 dollar ones.. I cant speak for any other e46 besides the m3 but we already have had this discussion many times over headers in the m3 world. It came down to this
Cheap headers 33 33 33 percent chance: Cheap and will work/Cheap and needs mods to work/Cheap and disappointment
Expensive headers: will work with out a doubt

BOTH: nearly the same stupid horsepower just someone put a neat lil name on the headers making them authentic lol

I use the rule of thumb, don't buy the cheapest one. Buy the second cheapest one. Hasn't failed me yet!
