I inquired about the Headman Headers and was told they are only for right hand drive vehicles? I looks like people have used them on their 90's, anyone know the deal here?

I recall reading somewhere that coatings allow "too much" heat to reach the cats thereby shortening their life. ???

The point of headers is to benefit from their better geometry. I don't see how that can ever be matched by coating stock (restrictive) manifolds.

Simon,
The headmans state they are for rhd vehicles but I have heard of several people fitting them to lhd's. I think there is a guy at www.neversummeroffroad.com who put them on his rig and can tell you what he had to do. I don't think it is that big a deal. After speaking to the guy who built my exhaust I think I will go with stock manifolds, match port and coat the inside only. There is a procsess done localy where they push a abrassive mud through the manifold to smooth the pathways and then have it internaly coated with Jet-Hot or similar proscess. I am a little wary of the Headman Hedders, there flanges are very wimpy and tend to warp. Keeping costs down is also a major motivation with sticking to the stock manifold, my pocketbook is just not that large.

JohnC mentioned something about Janspeed headers, I recall, but don't remember seeing anything more about them.

Kevin, I think I am going to stick to the stock. I don't thik I want to monkey with modification, I think I will look to upgrade the rest of the exhaust in the future when it comes time. The NRP system looks good, really expensive but good. Thanks again!
