what are they made of? stainless? are they ceramic coated?...depending on what they are made of they should hold up. (who here is honestly planning to keep their +10 year old truck another 12 years?)
mine are 14 gauge stainless and were 120.00 I know a guy who has had them on his truck for three years and they are discolored with minor surface rust on the flange... To me its a no brainer over crappy steel headers like pacesetters...

I just ordered some ebay headers after going through the sellers past purchases of those headers and contacting those who had them for a while.... everyone recommended them and said they turn brown but otherwise are holding up great...I have to replace my pacesetters which cost twice as much and cracked right at the collector...they are also rusting badly so...
Which ebay headers did you order?
I know exactly what your saying about fram junk.

As to the cheap hardware mentioned by someone, I make it a practice to use good hardware and gaskets on all my builds.

As far as longevity of the header, realistically I wont have this truck long enough to worry about it as plans are to buy a newer one in the next couple years if not sooner. Even if I do end up needing to replace them once its probably still cheaper to buy a couple sets of these that one set of big name headers.
Will they be an improvement over the stock manifolds as far as flow not just looks and weight?
