I have sat back and watched the header stories on this site for the last several weeks and I have conversed with Steve Smith on all of the going ons. We both decided to just watched. Attached is a photo of five of the highest quality polished stainless steel headers that Steve could build. They are truly unique and incorporate his latest design revisions in their construction. Without a doubt they are five of the finest Show / Performance headers that can be found anywhere. All tubes were polished before, during and after final assembly. (I know because I was involved in the polishing of every Focus header that came out of the shop) All welds are presentation quality tig welds. Even the header bolts have been highly polished.

Polished stainless steel for me. Im not a fan of the ceramic coated versions (friend had one and its all rusted now). Plus the stainless makes pretty colors after extreme heat
Whats the price/availability?

Another photo and you can check out the welds.

Thank you. There was some very serious time spent on these headers and I am sad to say I cannot post a photo that does them justice (image size just gets reduced). You can see the reflection of our cats eye color in the pipes. Two sets spoken for 3 may be available and then I start on a stainless steel turbo design. The top header in the other photo is a 2.3 turbo header that is almost equal length (it maybe off by about 3/4 of an inch or so)with a merge collector.

Price? Availability? I know they are going to be a lot, but that's the kind of header I want. I want clean welds, show quality, and the performance to back it up!! Good job on making an excellent product! Is there a contact to obtain more info on these? I'm currently building up my car, and this would be a nice addition
