Exhaust Header VS Manifold, which is the better choice?
The structural differences between exhaust headers and manifolds are the material and size. From the material, exhaust headers are made of lighter, thinner steel, while exhaust manifolds are made of thick iron. Exhaust headers are also longer than exhaust manifolds. When in use, exhaust manifolds create back pressure, which lowers performance. Because each cylinder of the engine is given its own tube, however, headers eliminate this problem; thus, allowing the gases to exit without the creation of back pressure. Therefore, exhaust headers are a BETTER choice than an exhaust manifold.
The header will do what I was expecting it to do but the EGR bong is not in the right position to attach the EGR tube to it and the exhaust has a leak due to the fact that the factory intake exhaust combo has a half moon cut out on each bolt hole for the washer to secure intake and exhaust. The header does not accommodate for this. The header should have something welded to the bolt holes to accommodate the Halfmoon side of the washer.

I used the return label you sent and it came back and I had to pay 60.00 shipping to get them to release them or they would go to undeliverable mail.
