Parts Warning: Shorty Headers

Just thought I'd put out a quick parts warning:

Part: Shorty Headers (application: All E36 non-M/Z3)

They are sold at www.bavauto.com (Part: 32 E36 OBD-II C) and http://www.mmotorwerks.com (SKU: JH.E36)

Product info states: "Our headers are designed to bolt directly to your engine and stock or aftermarket exhaust systems."

Although I was told it would hookup to my stock exhaust, it took 13 HOURS of custom modification work to get them to fit on. Obviously I can't speak for the other models this part is offered on, but I can tell you that this was the case with my 1996 328IS

As far as the good news....I'll post up tonight and let you guys know how it sounds.

13 hours... that's crazy. I'd question the quality of the shop you're taking it to.... I'm thinking no header install, even with custom fabrication, should take over 4 hours or so.

Headers sound awesome, definetely a new melody to the car. I also noticed gains, which really surprises me considering I didn't notice gains with any of my other mods, including the chip.
