Default E46 Stainless Steel Headers

I'm currently in the process of getting a protype step header with cnc flanges
in stainless steel. The cnc flanges look very good on the cad drawings I've already seen. The header's will also have a 3in1 collector. I will hopefully have them done by the end of next week. Will post pics and dyno will come
later. I'm currently running the supersprint headers an cats on my car currently. I've already had the dyno done on the current set up. I would like to know if any of you guys would be interested in them?

Interested in which? The Supersprint headers; which I assume you no longer need? Or the new design; which I assume you plan on selling here?

BTW, if you'd like ot sell your wares here (i for one would welcome another vendor) it might be a good idea to contact site management. TIA.

Peace,

Ronin.

Not sure I will be selling any if no one is interested in them. Yes, I would be talking about the set I will be having custom made. Not the supersprint headers, these will be of a higher quality than supersprint. Also, I'm not a vendor. Just an enthusiast who knows someone who can make a quality product.

Cool. Thx for clarifying matters.

I would not be in the market for a new set of headers assuming that the ones I have do not develop probs.

It'll be interesting to see how many are looking for headers. I've noticed quite a bit of ongoing discussion on this topic.

Headers are an excellent way to improve on the OEM M3 exhaust system. Unlike many mufflers (aka; exhausts) on the market which only provide louder (maybe better?) and better looking pipes.

BTW, I know of a shop that might be interested in your friend's header. PM me for more info.

Peace,

Ronin.

Here is a pic of a set of headers from his resume. I really dont think you guys will be dissapointed.

I'd be interested, depending, of course, on the cost. I have the Magnaflow cat-back exhaust and the headers seem a logical next step

If I recall correctly, headers for the E46 M3 is quite difficult to make that results in good overall performance.
