That sucks big time. Their air-cooled 911 parts seem to often get mentioned for negative reasons, too. I hope the company takes care of you.

I don't believe he does parts for 924/44/68, but RarelyL8 Motorsports/M&K's stuff has the most beautiful quality and welds ever, aircraft-grade work that would look right at home on an F-35 engine.

Where exactly would one mount the headers on an F35? Asking for a friend

Sorry, aircraft reference. The F35’s engine is the Pratt & Whitney F135, made here in Connecticut. The welds on jet engines are pretty much the nicest anywhere, and Brian/RarelyL8’s welds on his M&K products look aircraft grade. I believe they’re done using gas-purging but that may be the wrong terminology. If you already know all this, I apologize.
