    OK, they keep changing prices on us, we got a really good deal the first time but then raised the price, so if we are to continue, or unless we get a cheaper job, then we have to raise the price about $100 a header. Anyone that's paid or partially paid this doesn't apply.

    Sorry guys but we simply can't absorb the additional costs as we were only making a few dollars before.

    Hey Simon,
    I bought some t3 flanges from guy on ebay. Excellent quality made in North America, and really inexpensive. I wanted 1018 mild steel but I'm sure he could do 304 stainless
    .500" thick $10.99 shipped. Guy spent $5.50 to ship small flat rate box. Guys name is Robert Rego, Maple Springs Farm, Verona, WI. Guy says satisfation guaranteed or money back including return shipping. That don't happen very often.
    Keep checking, lots on people can do this cutting these days, but shipping could be an issue.

    We need the actual head flanges, that's the deal breaker right now. Gotta link?

    Simon, I'm ok with the price increase and still want one. Stinks cost went up but hey that's how the cookie crumbles when dealing with conditions out of your control.

    Did you come with a T3/Chrysler style turbo flange or just one or other?

    Sure, but by the time we send you the metal to you, which will be very costly, it won't be worth it.

    Life has taken a turn for the best, put everything on hold for a few years, then I can play again.

    Sadly, I'm going to have to back out of getting the header and everything. Have some other things going on that take priority over the Charger unfortunately.

    Very sorry, not an excuse but Shayne's personal life hasn't been, well smooth, I won't get into details unless he wants to share.

    Re: Offering welding services, custom manifolds or ?

    O.K., I'm too old and brittle to give or take any grief so the 655 head with custom intake dream is officially dead. I'll just reassemble my engine with the original head and two piece and call it a day. If it's at all possible to get my mock up intake back that would be appreciated as I would be happy to have a token of Shayne's craftsmanship after waiting so long.

    No hard feelings

    Best wishes to all.

    Thanks
    Randy
