Anyone ever buy these set of headers:

I haven't been paying attention over the past few years, but appears what happened was AMS sold their company to this company in texas. AMS was selling their headers for $1000, but this new company is selling them for $400-500.

Quality wise, appears the AMS headers weren't really up to par.

Long story short, anyone try the headers by the texas company?

PS: I'm well aware of the kleemann option.

You get what you pay for. All headers are not equal.

Those headers are so similar to the stock, I don't know why you would bother with them...
