Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

        Frank would be the person to answer the downpipe refund question....I would like to know it myself.


        If I understood this correctly, coating was always extra to the initial 1300 though.

          It was, but I paid the extra $100 and the headers showed up uncoated. I don't mind having to have them coated myself but then refund the $100

            I would imagine that youíll be getting it back plus some for downpipes. Frank didnít say how much he budgeted for downpipes in that 1300, I guess we found out soon enough

              Some minor notes on fitment. The front piece went on perfect no issue :) The back piece required a little massaging of the holes. Flange probably warped slightly under heat of welding, anyways no big deal just reamed out the holes ever so slightly. Also that #5 exhaust stud is still a bear. Shouldn't be too big of a deal. I'll probably shorten the stud slightly and possibly grind a little off the weld off. All other clearances from what I can tell are A OK!
              I don't think the problem with the back bank fitment you had is a warping issue. I have the same issue with mine and the flange is perfectly flat. Most like there was an issue with a jig for drilling those holes. 3 cylinder top bold and 6 cylinder bottom bolt were grabbing, some filing took care of the issue. Some flange welds are definitely need some grinding as the nut bottoms out on the weld instead of the flange. Looks like common for these, judging by Frank's picture of from the previous GB (zoom in on copper nuts)

                I haven't received my headers yet but being I missed out on the first GB, I'm thankful for Frank doing this second one, all the while knowing the BS he had to put up with the first time.
                Thank you Frank!:up:

                  Agreed, there would be no unicorn headers ever again if not for Frank. Thank you sir. Unfortunately it looks like it didnít go as planned again. 3rd timeís a charm??? Time for GB #3? :)

                    these are 1-5/8" off the head? mine BTB2/3 are like that and needed to get thin walled nuts and screw the nuts on progressively major PITA on the engine....my custom set will be 1-1/2" off the head stepped to 1-5/8" with no bend nearby to make install easier

                      Years ago, I contacted BTB for headers for my m30 swap because Alpina only had half a set left in stock. This was before Supersprint finally decided to fabricate them. BTB said they would not ship to the states.

                        i got mine through Evolve way back. you'd probably need a freight forwarder otherwise. they dont seem to offer them anymore but they'd be too expensive in any case so it be cheaper to get a custom set...

                          Anyone heard from Frank if we should expect any partial for the lack of downpipes?

                              Did we ever get confirmation that these are actual stainless? I have some surface rust inside the collector.

                                get a magnet, 304 is not magnetic until you work harden it so just try magnet on a straight section of the pipe away from bends, swaged areas

                                the pics from earlier on look like stainless. you can still get light corrosion with 304
