Ebay Headers

I know I'm goin out on a limb,but here we go.. YES i searched,and yes I read the everything you need to know about Ebay headers thread, but when looking for headers on Ebay,most say for 325/330.I don't think thats possible that they fit both engines. I can't find any that say just for M54 motor,ect. Anybody have Ebay headers for a 330 and could recommend a good seller.I really don't wanna buy something,take my car apart (6hrs later)to find out the flange isn't long enough,ect.. thx

I just ordered BimmerBrakes headers a couple months ago. They fit in my 328i without clearance issues. I am making a custom exhaust so I can't speak for fitment to the rest of the exhaust.

Why wouldn't it fit? it's the same block and head. The B30 is just stroked w/ different cams, crank, connecting rods, pistons. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Hey I'm looking to put ebay headers on my 2005 325i. Just wondering if you did the non-fouler method with your post cat O2 sensors? If so was the fitment okay? I keep hearing that the non-fouler method won't work with the ebay headers because there isn't enough room to fit them. Thanks man

What Mango said. B25 and B30 use the same block.

It is very tight in there. Just run an O2 simulator.
