Who makes good headers?

Who makes good headers other than Jerry Woods/Smart Racing?

Headers with a triangle shaped collector, not the "flat" 3 into 1 collector?

Those Scargo headers are a thing of beauty! I know horsepower racing here in pasadena does the work on bursch headers which are good for the price but some dont like them. He does a lot of custom exhaust work at a good price if you can get a hold of him.

There are quite a few companies making good quality headers but if money has some meaning to you the best deal is Horse Power Engineering (626)440-0440. If you just want the best and money is no object Reid Washbon (949) 548-9783 is by far the best I've seen [Cart and IRL teams are his biggest customers]. Burn's Stainless (949) 631-5120 also needs to be on a short list.
The picure is a headers from a IMSA Champion GTP Nissan built by Reid

I second Henry's opinion. Reid also built/builds them for PMNA, all the 962 headers from the GTP days came from Reid.

He is a super nice guy in a very modest shop but he is not cheap!

Thanks everyone for your input. For the moment i am going to keep what i have put the money towards new pistons and a top end rebuild.

Juan, i followed the link on your signature recently and emailed Billet Design. For whatever reason, i did not get a reply.

Paul
