Not available for quick purchase. You can send your stock ones to get ported and coated from www.hulkspeed.com or PM oldblueeyesbonne (spelling?). Or you can pay out the nose for a custom set of headers that will barely, if at all, be better than the ported stockers.

Just port your EM'* and get them nickel coated and they will look just like headers.

Nickel? I can think of a few coatings that would be better. Peanut butter comes to mind.

Nickel Ceramic Coating... The same that you could get on TOG'*?

Works well and looks great.

PEM'* coated with a nickel ceramic coating. They look as good as headers!

I'll make sure that Olblueeyesbonne (Marty) sees this post, as I'm sitting at his computer right now LOL.

Ok, next time don't say NICKEL without the Ceramic. Nickel wouldn't do you much good. And nickel plating is common enough for you to mislead people.

Sorry I should of said ceramic... I thought that the ceramic was a given but by they way you commented prolly not. Yeah just like you said the nickel is basically only for looks.

Nickel also is used extensively in aluminum parts. Much of the stuff I design and build for HP gets a nickel plate to protect the surface. It'* tougher than anodizing.
