Default Headers for the DOHC 3.4?

I was looking at 95nasta stage 2 heads when I saw at the website they have( http://www.milzymotorsports.com/ ) headers for the 3.4 DOHC. My question is when did that motor get enough attention to warrant the development of headers and why hasn't the 3800 series 1. To be honest I'm just venting because I would love a set of headers for my L27. oh well maybe someone can tell me why nobody has made one for my L27 :(

3.4 is in more cars and of those more cars, more of them are withink the size, style, and/or price range of persons (teens and young adults) that would be looking for headers... that or someone paid to have them developed and then decided to sell them.

The 3.4 DOHC is a much more different motor, and is likely around in much lower numbers than an L27...

The DOHC was in Cutlass Supremes and Luminas (and MC'* I believe). Different than the 3400. And it was a nasty engine to work on. It also had 215hp which could be another reason for headers being made (peformance gains, etc...)

I think you're thinking about the 3100-based 3.4 OHV. Different motor.



It was indeed a nasty engine to work on, not only that, it was known for its poor reliability, which just added insult to injury :o
