Default Series I headers?!!?!!?!

Just found these -is the guy totally clueless, or are they the real deal? Never knew of any headers for the Series I, but that'* what he claims.
My question, though, is on, what appears to the front header, is there going be enough room between the radiator and the engine for this? If these are for real I'm gonna have to snag em for future use.

Do you own a Series 1? In your SIG it say a '98. Looks like it might be true! The front header does look long. Who is the guy and where did you find them?

There is a 1993 Buick Park Avenue Ultra and 1993 Olds Delta 88 sitting in my driveway at the moment.
Guy told me a dirt cheap price. I'm looking at the manifold setup in the Park Ave tomorrow to see how different they are, and if they look like they'll work I get them and mom will have a Park Ave Ultra with a little more oomph for when Dad or I drive her car.

Looks like my headers too, except my crossover tube [from front to rear header] is bolted, versus [what appears] welded.

Yeah those look a tad stock. Not sure from what though. You can see the one on the left has off sized tubes (the one on the far right is smallest it seems). Also how they all dump into that one tube, looks anti-performance to me. The one on the right dumping into one tube looks more like a performance header should, more of a straight shot (but not quite). On the left its; out, then 90* turn, meet another pipe, another 90* turn, then out the exhaust. Those would surely be classified as a manifold.



Note the difference in design.

Where can I have me some custom headers made? You know? There is this place about 20 miles or so from me that does all kinds of custom engine work and tuning, so do you think they could maybe make me some? Im willing to pay up to a grand for some.

I'm sure they could, anywhere with a welder and a little experience is overqualified haha. 1k sounds good, maybe we can switch up. In March I was planning on getting a custom set made, with measurements anyone can take in to get them cheaper...but if you wanna do it now, getting that info would be nice
