EBAY: Is it me or are these stock headers?

  1. First off i want to say that i'm not bidding on these headers so it really doesn't matter but i just wanted to get everyones opinion on this.
    Take a look at http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=33631&item=2445978234
    The guy claims that they are stainless ford mustang headers that have been hts coated. They look like stock Mustang headers painted silver...LOL Were FMS shorty headers that kinked?
    I can't believe people would bid $80+ for headers that look like stock headers (to me) especially from a guy with three negatives with only a feedback of 43.
    What does everyone think? Are they stock?
  2. now, he does say they are "FORD", not "Ford motorsport/FMS"...and they will flow better than cast manifolds, that appeared on earlier 289/302
  3. Stock headers might flow better than cast manifolds but that doesnt make them worth that kind of money. You can't give stock mustang headers away...or at least not until that auction..LOL
    Or are you saying you think they are something other than stock headers? As far as i know no fords come with stainless headers stock.
  4. Those are stockers.
  5. Thay look like 86-93 stock 302 headers that heve been spray painted with high temp paint from Kragen auto parts !
  6. the top one looks like it was beat with a hammer
  7. Do all of you have stockers like that as well or do you guys have manifold?
  8. rudeone: Stock mustangs come with headers but are kinked like those in that auction. Most guys on here have aftermarket shorty or long tube headers on their cars.

    I feel sorry for the people who are bidding on these because even though he never says they are aftermarket headers i'm sure thats what they assume. Look at his feedback. Somebody said something about him selling an exhaust part that wasn't what he claimed it was. EBAY SCUM!
  9. im sure everyone knows...he never said they were aftermarket or FMS...just FORD...its perfectly legit...the coating looks good and if its real, it is expensive. a stock set of "nice" looking headers goes for like 40-50 on ebay..browned set like 20-30...so its right around teh ballpark
  10. plus the stockers are stainless, are are better than the earlier manifolds..and it is a good upgrade on those cars from manifolds to headers. and theres nothing wrong with the price as far as what ive seen other go for...not saying i would pay that, but thats what they go for
  11. I totally agree that the stockers will flow better than a manifold but that price seems ridiculous because i literally threw my old ones away from my 92gt. Guess next time i'll spray them silver and sell them for $100...LOL
    Did anyone notice the 77mm pro m that just sold on ebay for $50??? I was just about to bid on it (with two minutes left) and my FRIGGIN dial up connection locked up! ARGH!
  12. Whatever they are, they will not flow well. See the kinks in the manifolds? Those look like stockers to me. If they aren't, who cares. They won't flow well.

    If you are going to go through the trouble of installing headers, you might as well put some good ones. They aren't very expensive for our cars. EL shorties are cheap and they flow very well. Not like LT's, but that is a whole different subject.

  13. those are stock headers that are coated, what a joke
  14. If you wanna bought VERY nice stock headers( in good condition) , I have one for sale for cheap , let me know with PM
  15. Those are stock pinched crap headers, that have been sprayed.

    I like it how he tried to play them up, by saying Stainless steal shorty headers..
    Yea, the stock ones are stainless, a very cheap grade of stainless, at that.
    ( forget the #) They are definetaly pre 94 headers ( but would work)

    also HTS coating isnt that shiney or silver... its much more dull.
  16. Those headers are not from 94-95 Mustang 5.0 because 94-95 have little tube for EGR on passanger side header on third tube
  17. It says they are HTC coated. :nonono:
  18. These are real Aftermarket Headers, compare them to the ones on Ebay, theres a big diffrence
  19. That's weird because they both left positive feedback for each other too.
