    Those headers look in pretty rough shape just by the look of the coating and the external rust spots.

    Rattle can coating so that's why it looks like crap. Thumped around on them they feel solid still ohh well guess I will have to find some new ones after shootout. What's more money at this point...

    Same thing happened to mine on the way to the shootout in 2014. I determined it was where the EGR hookup was capped off and finally became stressed and blew apart.

    Perhaps you recall Vining and I using Beer Cans to patch things up . Bud Light Ritas are about a perfect fit!

    Took me a while to realize what exactly had happened and let's just say mine has a similar repair 😁.

    Put about 40 miles on it today. More tunning AFR is very safe and its stupid quick with only 16deg of timing in it. Gotta few little things to put back on the car then i think i am going to commute it a few days and data log tweak on the tune etc.
