The dude doesn't give a brand name to the headers, which should be your first warning sign.

Also, I've never heard of "polished ceramic"...is that legit? I honestly don't know confused Thought it was either ceramic or stainless steel, and those look like stainless steel.

"Race" headers usually involve eliminating the cataylic converter. The header in that picture is not long enough to do so. I really doubt you'll be seeing a 8-15 hp gain from a set of 4-1 shorty headers.

Those would be my major concerns if I was considering buying those headers.

I buy things off ebay all the time. I havent had any problems. I bought an Intake for my car off there and it was the right one. The only problem i had was when i bought my alarm off there they didnt send me one wire, but i just got that wire at a stereo store. Just check the sellers feedback and you should be fine. Of course what other people were saying about not including the brand name would make me nervous about this item specifically. But i wouldnt go as far as to say dont buy ANYTHING off ebay.

Yea wouldn't trust ebay. I mean you don't know how that will turn out. I'd rather spend a lot $$ get something liek trial or TRD b/c you know the outcome is gonna be good.
