Zero issues with fitment. The headers combined with my evolve tune ended up giving me 305 rwhp and really boosting my low end torque. Drives like a new car. Very happy with my decision.

So, three years later: are our US headers worth more as scrap or sold whole here?

There is just little demand for used cats on the forum. Only if somebody is going back to stock before selling the car.

Teh precious metals in the cats hold their value, if not appreciate. When I looked up the pricing around the time of the original post, this company was offering $75 per cat. Not sure what the value is now.

There's so many people buying exhausts and headers in the US I can't see someone wanting to pay more than what the owner would get for recylcing.

I know I wouldn't want to pay more than $150 for stock headers.

The platinum in the cats is worth a lot of money and the price just keeps getting better and better.

I just asked that recycle company for an updated quote and said they will buy the cats for $50 each. For $100 a set, I'll just keep them in a box in my garage.

Commodity prices have taken a huge hit so you're probably getting 50% less than 2-3 years ago.
