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.

This guy is apparently a distributor for them so that clears this up.

i dont think he is. his SS was the prototype for the catback system. think he just a regular person that thought it would be smart to buy in bulk and resale. but i could be wrong

Well, it's still a better price than the JBAs, but that's a $120 mark up per set for making a phone call. Seems a bit steep to me.
