I would be tempted also. I downloaded the install instructions yesterday and they were incomplete, but at least gave some information as to the how and why of the installation.

Incomplete due to a few critical dimensions for cutting and welding the down pipe...

Auto Anything doesn't have them listed yet. If they were to offer the same 30% discount on these as they do on the DT V8 Shorties, the price would be around $350 a set!

Then again, I don't imagine they are able to do the volume of V6 headers they can with the V8, so maybe that kind of discount isn't possible. I'll see if I can get hold of someone at DTH to ask.

Thank you John. While you are talking to them would you ask them when they are going to finish the install instructions they have on their site? They read "Need Jamie's Approval" and the length to cut them before the cat is missing still. Thank you again very much!

Im thinking we should contact Doug Thorley directly and work out a group buy with them. No need to include a middle man. We could probably get them cheaper doing that too.

Just trying to facilitate communication. If you want to contact DT about a group buy directly, I'm all for it. This grad school homework doesn't do itself.

I'd say let John VS take the idea to them, seeing how he's their test mule, he's gotta have some knowledge of whom to talk too, lol. Just sayin, that's all. Especially since I've seen posts where people are talking about DT's lack of email response time. Maybe having a local fellar would be a good thing??

I think he meant to cut out AutoAnything, not to cut out John.

For a minute there I thought you had the impression I was getting a cut of the group buy. If only it were so!

Sounds like there's one offer on the table for a group buy. Haven't heard a price point though.

I left a message for Nick. Hopefully I'll hear back from him today. I'll be in an out but I'll let you know if I hear from him.

Bad karma's group buy is going to be priced at 450 a set but I honestly think that we could get a better price direct from factory. No offense karma

No offense taken...those were initial numbers. There are only a handful of them built. Jon here has one of 5. We have the other 4 coming. Need 15 to get the build rolling.

Okay, good news. Nick at DTH just let me know they have four sets left from the initial batch. The first four who call him can get a set for $325. That's a full 33% off regular price and nearly $200 less than auto anything's price on comparable JBAs.

He did say he may be able to set up another group buy in the near future, but right now this is all they have on hand.

Here's his info:

Nick Thompson
Doug Thorley Headers
Sales Manager - International/Domestic
1220 W. Railroad St.
Corona, CA 92882
Toll Free: (800) 347-8664
Direct: (951) 739-5903
Cell: (951) 733-8658
Fax: (951) 273-3616
Email: nickt@dougthorleyheaders.com

Oh, and I forgot to ask him about the instruction pdf and when that would be finished. I'll ask him now.

John - so the headers are actually welded on. Wow, when I put the long tubes in mine, the shorties just unbolted from the down pipe that has the cats. I wonder why they decided to weld them and not just have another bolt on style, for a do-it-yourself style mod. Oh BTW I have yet to get any codes with my long tubes after 100ish miles. I love the results you got though - I think it is awesome!

devildoc,

Jamie, who made the master part, said he was concerned about installers not getting the clamps right and creating a leak which would lead to a CEL. He said something else about the size too, but I honestly can't remember that far back. I've got nearly 100 on mine since pick up and no CEL.

Awesome....well I guess that makes sense. Kinda bypasses the problem that some of the guys were having with their JBAs.
