    Your best bet may be directly contacting some of the Fab guys in the business such as WDR or PB5.

    They're expensive. I tried to contact Craig about it and he blew me off about 3 different times. I'd contact Pete @ Fabless. He told me they had them in stock and they were $150 + shipping. The set was 1/2" thick 304 stainless.

    His email is pete@fablessmanufacturing.com

    I ended up just drawing a set and they're being cut with the laser cutter as we speak.

    I mean, if your welding them up yourself or having it welded in general, wouldn't it be more cost effective and also easier to install and remove if you replace the flange on the 2.8 headers with a vband? you can get 4 vbands with clamps for like half of what they want for those.
    Never argue with an idiot, they'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    That’s what I would do too.

    Besides being easier to fit and remove, they allow a degree of alignment, before final tightening.

    Welding the cast manifolds is not an easy task. It would take someone with a ton of practice to weld cast manifolds to stainless or mild steel.

    You should get into the flange business, $150 sounds like ass rape to me.

    $130 a set... Probably two years lead time

    Honestly 2 years of lead time is about average for the b5 vendors.
