are the ebay stainless steel headers any good... theyre only 200 bucks and i can reinforce the welds.

No, they are garbage. They don't use the proper filler wire for the welds, which causes them to crack after a few heat cycles and some spirited driving. The piping is a thinner gauge as well.


Get a stinger header instead and save yourself the trouble.

I would post in the wanted section for a E6 manifold. That is the stock manifold/header used from 1985.5 to 1988 should be able to find one cheap.

Any pictures to back that claim up? What year did you buy them? I know Bob's redesigned them at least once.

The original Bobs "small log" had a few problems with cracking, but AFAIK, the third generation "big log" doesnt crack.

Let me re-phrase that. A bob's log will not crack as fast as anything else tubular by far. I run mine without the brace and no cracks! From what I read everywhere I see people complaining about how their tubular header cracks all the time and needs to be re-welded ALL THE TIME! If it were me, I'd get a little spot weld on your e6 to hold you over so you can save up for a Bob's log.
