Even Kleemann does not make headers for the r170

https://catalog.kleemann.dk/catalog/...200230k-m111k/

only m271 engine

https://catalog.kleemann.dk/catalog/...cylinder-cars/

I could be wrong

@Turdo2 @M4rCu5

Wrong side of the Atlantic, but do you have any suppliers (see post 1)?

Answer to that question is that OP could be really struggling to buy headers out of the box.
Short of making your own or getting some custom made (expensive), I really wouldn't like to say.
Even Powerflow in Nottm. don't list them



It's much the same tale for the V6 as well

Look at headers for the M119.. use only the right side maybe? I imagine space is pretty tight down there with the steering box. In fact I KNOW it's very tight.
