With any header or intake on ebay, there good but not great. Meaning, they'll prolly work out for a while but after a little time it seems welds become an issue. I bought turbo manifolds off of "egay" and had good luck but after a year I'd have to re-weld aroung the flange to the tubes.

I have been designing headers & performance exhaust systems for over 20-years.
I have found alot of stuff out there that does not work
Do yourself a favour & research the product you wish to buy.
Also remember that the exhaust system starts at your Exhaust valve & ends much further back than the collector of your header
