Default headers?

This might be a stupid question but can someone tell me where I can get some headers for around $3. Has anyone made custome headers and still have the bend blue prints I can buy, Anyone know who will make or sell them for cheaper. The prices that I found online from makers like intence are rediculas. I'm sure its worth it for people with the money, but what about us regulars. Are we doomed to small upgrades like, spark, thermo, CAI, which is all well and good but only truely shows its potencial with a $600+ upgrade.

You could get ported exhaust manifolds for less than $300.
Or you could go to the classifides section at www.clubgp.com and find some used headers for much less then the new price tag.

pem'* are like a half step to headers, so basically they are half way between headers and stock manifolds.

When you have a small market, items like these can be expensive. Larger more mature markets usually have better prices because mass quantities can be made and price breaks obtained.

And by the way, its INTENSE.

My ceramic headers that were on my honda Civic hatch cost me 650$ canadians , if you want quality you will have to pay some little extra.

And like Rogue said, it have something to do with the market, and the headers on INTENSE come with the downpipe.
Wich is more work than a 4 banger headers.

Quality deserve its cost. IMO
