Well, what do you say when you spend good money and the product is CRAP? Yesterday, I went for a little spin. It was sunny with temps in the high 50's. Nice, crisp roadster weather. So, I'm all cozy in my So-Cal swag, when all of a sudden... pop..pop..pop..pop. WTF? My T's running great, but there's a faint popping noise coming from the right side of my engine. I get home and find exhaust carbon on my right header flange. Again, WTF? I remove the header and the rear tube is cracked 3/4 of the way around! They are Speedway's "classic" style. This set is only 6-8 months old! WTF? But what REALLY pisses me off is how these damn headers were welded together. The tubes are welded to the flange on the backside, but NOT on the front side! Why would a company do this crap? It just doesn't make sense. Looks like stress and vibration combined with the weight of the collecter was the problem. But being welded on both sides of the flange would have helped a little. At least where it cracked. It cracked right where a weld should have been. My last set was the same way, but held up. I'm going to call Speedway, but as a dealer, all they'll do is refer me to PERTRONIX. In other words, I'm going to spend the morning getting the run around. Luckily, I still had my old set and swapped out the fucked up side. The money I had been saving for upholstery will now go to a new set of headers. I'm leaning towards Lakester's. My thinking is that shorter tubes will be less stress on the main tube. I've been doing my research and Matt at lakeheaders.com seems to have a good product. Speedway's pushing a set, but they are made by Pertronix. If they are welded right, they could be a good choice as well. So, question is, has anyone used Speedway's lake headers and are they welded on BOTH sides of the flange? Are Matt's welded on both sides? Matt's are cheaper, but they aren't heat coated like Speedway's. How much does Matt charge to coat them?
