Anyone use the JVT headers shown on Ebay? Pretty good price but wondering about quality and any improvement in performance.

One thing I have been surprised about is the high price of headers from main suppliers.

Good question. I have seen many and varying prices and they all look like the same maker. Thought I would give them a try :angry: What a mistake! I fought with them for days and finally got all bolts

to line up...As I began to torque them down, it became obvious that the end holes are drilled too close to the the outlet pipe, and by the time you (I) notice that the bolt is cocked and cross threading. It also appeared that they hang lower than the name brands, and will likely hit bottom in certain conditions. I will humbly admit after all that work and loud exhaust leaks I ended up spending several hundred dollars for a flatbed to the dealer, and more to re-install and tap out the cross threaded holes! Maybe I am just an idiot...But iI have installed many items, and had no luck with these. If you look at the pictures closely, you can see that the end holes are too close for the bolt head to clear.

I have seen on Vertex website, a reasonably priced SCHNELL ($299) set, that looks more like a factory fit....Once I shake off the horror of stripping out my manifold, I may try those :)

Good luck

My advice is to just get the X 51 headers from Porsche. They are not pretty but fit perfect and will increase performance. Also they are reasonable price.

here is a link from Suncoast.


From what I have read none of the aftermarket companies have made a header that performs better than the X 51.
