Not sure how long our studs are as I haven't done my header swap yet. These headers look like they might require longer studs. I could be wrong.

No experience with headers but in general not happy with MS quality. I use their mounts for my bucket seats and the fitment is never perfect. I can only imagine how it'd be for a header job.

this. i can't praise the fabspeed headers enough for the abuse they've withstood. great build quality and no fuss installation.

i don't know anything about the macht schnell headers other than that the company is reputed.

gluck.

Hey inTgr8r. I was thinking about getting either the Macht Schnell or Fabspeed headers. You have Fabspeed. What kind of section 2 do you have? Do you have the o2 sensors relocated? If so, what did you do about the empty bungs on the Fabspeed header? Do they come with a plug?

Still sorting that out.
I'll most like go with DKF when it is available.

For now I'll just park everything at the Fabspeeds

For that money why not get Donovan to provide Euro Cats? Maybe I'm missing something

Agreed. Wherever you go there's always some gripe about MS quality/fitment being weird (spacers-brackets-bolts etc).
