looking for a sorce for step header for a 2002. Ordered from Ireland in Jan. Still backordered! Stalh(korman)seems only option unless have one made.

FWIW, Jere Stahl makes a beautiful, and performing, header.

sure wish Stahl made good E36 stuff... the price for these old 4 cyl bimmers makes me sick... ( looking at spending 2k plus for kromerkraft )

You get what you pay for. Stahl's are cheap for a reason in my book.

I didn't know Stahl was cheap? I bought a Kromercraft system from James Clay, seemed like a lot of money, had a hard time coming to grips with the price, until it arrived, They look awsome! they fit great, I've used them for about a year and a half and have had no problems whatsoever. They are worth every penny. I'd love to have just the six into one collector as a vase! I could put two roses in each pipe. It's a work of art.

Dont get me wrong here, I think the Kromerkraft is the best out there but when you can buy a full blown top notch set of V8 headers for a Trans Am or Winston Cup car for the same price as a set for a six banger it kinda hurts your feelings http://ITForum.ImprovedTouring.com/smile.gif

Thanks for the input. What about what the folks at ireland eng. offer?

I looked at the Ireland Eng site and checked out thier headers. It's interesting that they state these headers are for motors with over 175hp! What kind of ITB car are you building? Also its been a while since I've bought Stahl headers for a 2002 but how does Irelands price ($310) compare? I say, bite the bullet step up and go for the Stahl even at the higher price. I think years from now when your bank account has recovered and you car runs great and your Stahl headers still work great you'll be glad you did.

I have the Stahl set on my e30 325, I think they run close to $800. Kinda salty in my book, but it performs well. I just wish it didn't hang down so low, mine is almost flat accros the bottom from a few off track excursions.

I had Stahl on my E30 then after I smashed the bottom flat I changed to SuperSprint. No noticable power loss, much more room under the car.
