Arrow Header Help (megan?)

so I pulled my heat shield off today (97 ex sedan 5spd) because my car is starting to sound like a lawnmower and realized my header has one huge crack and one small crack in it (stock header)

I obviously want to replace it but I don't want to spend $200 or ever $150 to do so, I found a website that has one I have eyeballed for a while the megan 4-2-1
stainless steel header

it's $130 w/free shipping

or I can get a knock off one for $110 from a local shop

the megan one is at


has anyone ever purchased from them or know of a reputable site where I can get one for a similar price OR even where I can get a good header for around that same price WITH shipping.

I found a few at streetbeatcustoms.com for $80-$95 but by the time I added shipping they were more than the megan

thanks guys, any help is greatly appreciated

go to a pick n pull or junk yard and just snag a OEM header. Would be under $70

As far as Megan goes...ehhh it's hit or miss. I consider Megan quality to as bad as ebay headers. Iv heard good and bad about their headers mostly bad....I also owned a megan header....I went back to stock cus I didn't like it at all fitment sucked welds were for crap....sadly my f22a4 header preformed better than the "performance header" that megan makes.

Megan is a decent cheap header. You get what you pay for. It works.

I just need something to replace the stock one that will last, I don't need a name brand or something with gnarly performance (not that you get much out of a header anyways) cause it's just a stock y8 with an intake

If I had like $200 to drop it would be a different story but I'm kind of working with not quite ebay but not quite DC type of cash
