Default Ebay stainless headers

Hey everyone. i was just wondering if some of you guys could take a look at these headers and see if this deal is legit. The seller claims that you get 2 stainless headers with gaskets and hardware for 101.98 plus shipping. Can someone check it out for me plz?

Remember you get what you pay for. Now with that being said i bought pacesetter shortys for my 360 and there doing ok. they dont look fancy dancy but they work. Pretty cheap from summit only thing is DONT! and I mean DONT use the supplied gaskets. Learn from my mistake and use fel-pro the first time around.

I have them and i think they are great. The supplied gaskets are very good too. The only thing i did was get different header bolt because the ones that came with them are a little hard to get a socket on around the tubes.

I have been doing some research on the different ebay headers (yes there appears to be at least two different no name ones on there right now... )
I have to clarify a couple things I saw here...I currently have the pacesetter headers on my ram they are cracked where they meet in the inside of the collector and they have 1.5 inch primaries not 1.75. Maybe they make multiple types of shorties for the same engine?
I was told the knock off modeled after the JBA headers... Some have terrible welds but those dont appear to be the same header as say the "eworld" seller is selling since he states thicker 14 gauge construction, 2.25 collctors vs 2" that others have and the welds look totally different...much cleaner style like pacesetter and others use...The gaskets and bolts are of better quality to being the same ones pacesetter uses and the bolts look to be a good grade 8 stainless...
Everyone seems to always group everything from ebay together like its one product from one place...It true its likely from china but then again so is MOST of the name brand stuff sold today.. one header from one seller at one point in time means nothing compared to other unless they are in fact the same product..
That being said I'm about to replace my rusty pacesetter with the ones I mentioned from the eworld seller and will post back the results...I've messaged about 8 previous buyers of these headers from this seller over the last 6 months and they all said they worked well but one said one of the collectors didnt line up prefectly with his head pipe until he shifted things (to be expected with most headers)... and I think since I have the slightly adjustable magnaflow 23285 cat/pipe setup it should be easy to line things up..

well I'll have to figure out how to post them but I've got side by side comparisons of my old pacesetters and the new stainless ones and they are almost exact replicas except the stainless ones have larger flow passages, a thicher flange and cleaner welds....

I have the drivers side installed which went in without any issues but the passenger side has a stripped allen bolt holding the old one on at the moment so I tightened it back up untill I have the time to mess with it...
The stainless header went on and fit perfectly... everything lines up including the existing exhaust I used "eastwood header liner coating" to line the interior of the headers to help keep temps down.. we will see if it helps with discoloration but so far its turned a slight blueish /brown...
The only down side so far is the grade 5 bolts that ship with the headers are the wrong thread size... you need 5/16-18 and they shipped 5/16-16.

I see the seller is jacking the prices up another $80 bucks on ebay too...
