Doug thorley 3tc headers group buy

Postby 82te72 » Tue Sep 17, 2013 5:04 pm

i contacted the company and can still get these headers.

the email response is as follows:

"We do still have tooling for our THY-513Y-C headers. You already know that we do not stock these headers any longer due to the low demand for them. Like you suggested though, if the demand was created in a group buy scenario we would manufacture them again.

In order to allow me to release a manufacturing order to run the headers, I would need to have definitive interest from a minimum of 15 customers. By definitive, I mean that I would need to have orders placed with credit card numbers held until the headers are ready to ship. We would then of course contact all customers to inform everyone that they are shipping & cards will be charged.

We can do the headers for $399 each. Let me know what you think."


UPDATE

"Yes, the header are CARB exempt under EO #D-200-7

What would probably easiest, and most secure for everyone, is once you get above 10 (remember, I can justify manufacturing them to the owner until I hit 15 minimum) people email me a list of names with contact information. We will then contact everyone to get complete contact information & payment details"


here is a picture of said header

They come Silver Ceramic Coated, and are 14 gauge mild steel with a 3/8" flange which is their standard for 99% of their headers.


so please respond to this thread and I will make a list of people to see where were at and will relay any messages i get from them

thanks.

good design, fit 71-74 corolla's. Also from what i have heard they fit 3tc to ae86 chassis but i cannot confirm. 4-2-1 for more low end rather than the typical style 4-1 as seen everywhere.

$400??!! Probably $425-$450 by the tome its shipped?!?!?! Damn man, that just seems like allot of $$.

It really sucks when a company exploits the situation like this.

Just out of principle I wouldn't buy one of these headers n would rather pay a good fab guy to make me a custom header even of it costs more.

To each his own, no disrespect to those that will pay it, just expressing my opinion.

Yeah we were really hoping for something more like $275 shipped but $399 was the price given to us. Most custom header shops charge $400 at a minimum, I just wish for this price they were using stainless steel instead of mild.

Are these CARB legal? If they are legal in CA and have a CARB EO number, I'm in!
