The fit problems of the cheaper ones has been going on for about 30 years
now, and I wouldn't expect them to fix it now. The 4-pipes straight down to
a 90 degree bend headers are just plain junk. Stay away from them. There is
some discussion on the Rimmer header on my webpage in the Spitfire section,
but I still haven't installed it on my car.
