This link should work.
At first glance, I don't like the wastegate horizontally since they do collect moisture in the valve and diaphragm area.

Not as good as Brian's.

They might be equal length primaries but not secondaries.

Primaries are much too long - turbo like shorties to spool quickly.

I am not crazy about the waste gate design either. As stated above, secondaries are not equal. The polished is nice if you are looking for some under car "bling" I guess. I personally like function over aesthetics when it comes to performance parts.

I'm curious as to why B6 did long tube primaries when short tube is typical and less expensive. If the material is actually 321 it will turn a bronze color immediately when heat cycled. This is why I don't polish mine and don't suggest it to clients. I have polished a few sets and they do buff back easily after bronzing but I really doubt if anyone will go to the trouble.

This was the first time I had saw that they made a header and of 321 ss as well. I havent saw any pics. of them on a car yet,and wondered if anyone else had. The polishing is a waste IMO as they won't stay that way long.

If you want shiny 321 headers, all you need to do is coat them...
