Guys,

I have a good friend who had been with Bobby Rahal for several years and has an extensive background in all the major forms of Motorsports. In talking with him he mentioned all their headers were made in Europe by a manufacture that does F1 R&D on exhaust systems and supplies to all the major F1 Teams. Bill said the man requires complete chassis drawings, 2 fresh race engines, and a years lead time to develop and manufacture a set of headers for them. The cost for the first set is usually around $40,000.

Back in the real world where we just want these Old Sleds to run well on the street Brian's headers work quite well. That said, we need to understand there is a lot of expensive space between the practical and the theoretical. For us poor working stiffs we learn to get along the best we can with what we can afford.
