The photo on left has what looks like it has a copy write logo in lower right corner. So it's a random pic from somewhere off the interweb.. I suppose it could be anybody's product. They do LOOK identical, though..

In addition to that concern, you don't get a warranty on these eBay headers. APN has a lifetime warranty on it

I got this one 'cause it was ceramic coated.It fit nicely but I had to reuse my collector gasket 'cause the one they provided did not fit properly.

I also used a FelPro gasket,their's looked pretty cheap.

i bought an ebay header once, 1 month later it had cracks in the collector, #1 and #6 tubes were cracked right at the head, 7 months later put on a rugged ridge unit so far no issues.... dont go with a cheapo ebay header.... go with a well known name like apn or rugged ridge...

I've run an apn header with no complints and I'm about to do it again. Its a decent price, its not cracked, and sounds better
