one piece vs two piece shouldn't really make a difference. what you should pay attention is if its 4-1 or 4-2-1. 4-1 provides high end power, and 4-2-1 provides more low/mid power

some companys simply manufacture their parts that way - one piece versus two piece; really its arbitrary. however, most of the time, one piece refers to 4:1 and two piece refers to 4:2:1

inconsistancy is common among ebay no-name products

id say another reason for 2 piece headers is that it makes it awhole lot easier to instal in two pieces..... as well as the box can be smaller so it cuts down on shiping charges as well....

sorry man, that is wrong. Two piece headers actually have two pieces with a flange in between, one piece are actually just one part. One piece may have slightly better flow while two peice will prob be easier to fit in tthere. the 4:2:1 and 4:1 is a different issue entirely
