What would the rough price be for a set of custom headers? They'd be for my Miata.

The range is rather large. Regular stainless in a 4-1 would approach $1100,
with an all-out stepped 4-2-1 321 set-up costing hundreds more.

I'd be looking at a long tube 4-2-1 design, like these two.

Yes, like the bottom one.
Only real difference is that for about  what they likely charge, mine would be installed, and lighter.

I think 949Racing was charging somewhere in the 1300$ range for their piece. Great to know, I'll talk to you closer to the summer to get everything organized. The car is currently parked without a battery for the winter.

These pictures make me aroused.
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

The process west one looks nice for a fair price. I would happily make one, but competing with those types of set-ups is impossible price-wise. For very high HP applications there might be less market items.
