    Since this e30 is more of a toy, option B is my goal.

    The RD should suit the itb characteristics better as the shorter length primary is intune at a similar rpm to the inlet manifold. the bavauto should be better in tune with stock intake due to both having longer lengths that tune in at the bottom end mid range.

    Got any measurements for those headers ?
    switched to schrick 288 for ITBs.

    headers specs: 1 3/8 primaries, 2 collector into 2 mid-section

    I have ordered RD (long process so far) just for the sake of o2 sensor placement and some additional road clearance. Have a set of brand new BavarianAuto long tube headers but not sure if that's what I want....They seem to be superior to RD design as far as performance goes but their low clearance will probably be an issue for me. I also want to place o2 in between both banks and on the vertical run (similar to oem design). Long Bavauto headers are pushing 02 way back and lay it flat..something I'm trying to avoid

    no, i was referring to AAF but purely from a quality perspective, size wise they are waaaaaaay off.
    RD are a shadow of their former self IMO

    I sent him a message on Facespace. He last posted pics of them in 2016. My hopes are not high.
    Every time you get rid of something you realise that you wanted to keep it.
