Question Where is the Motorsport 24 headers?

It has been almost three months from the last update. I thought they would be out by now, but still nothing from M24 and IND. Any updates?

Thanks

My guess is that they realized that they can't improve on the stock headers.

I thought the same. But still i try to be optimistic and think otherwise.

I saw them in real life, so they do exist. Other than that, I have no useful information. At least you know they aren't "vaporware" now. : )

IMHO they are vaporware until you can actually buy them. However, I feel like a few others have said. Not much if any increase due to the headers. I mean the OEM exhaust manifolds already support over 100hp per litre, how much better can it get.

I hear you; I just wanted people to know they actually made a set. : )

OEM headers are artwork and offer amazing performance. I love this engine because of all the detailed engineering that went into it.

Based on statements by a lot of respected people in the know, it seems that headers will offer very little or no gain. But, that doesn't mean it can't be done. Also, the question remains if they could help in a situation where HP is way up - like supercharging.
